…Duh, of course you do. Secrets are fun and awesome. Everyone likes being in on a secret. And now you are: The Super Secret St. Paul Ice Cream Extravaganza!
It’s actually the University of Minnesota’s Dairy salesroom on the St. Paul campus. It’s technically not super secret, because anyone can look it up and find it. But it took me a year of attending the school to learn about it, and most people I tell about it have never heard of it. Yep, it’s there, and it’s worth making plans over.
They have a bunch of cheeses and frozen yogurt, but all I care about is the homemade ice cream available in half gallons and pints. A sampling of the flavor insanity: Apple Pie Crunch, Blueberry Cheesecake, Coffee Cappuccino Chip, Green Tea, Mango Tango, Peppermint Chip, Pumpkin, Rocky Road Explosion, and Vanilla Fudge Ripple. Seriously. SO GOOD. The best thing is going with a few friends and all getting different crazy flavors and sharing all of them. Ice Cream Insanity, friends. Real Talk. Did I mention that pints are only $3?
To add to the intrigue, it’s only open on Wednesdays from 3-5pm, and you never know for sure what flavors are going to be there. It’s first-come, first-serve, so get your butt over there at 2:45 for first dibs.
