Ice cream-craving New Yorkers gather at the Bell House in Gowanus for the Brooklyn Ice Cream Takedown.
Lemon Meringue Ice Cream
Alice's Quarter Life Kitchen was serving scoops of creamy, tangy, lemon meringue ice cream.
Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream
Do you like your ice cream spicy or mild? At the Takedown, the chocolate came in two levels of heat.
Apple Pie Ice Cream
Pie ice creams were popular in the takedown, and a few ice creams were served with a fruit compote and a crumble on top.
Cannoli Ice Cream
Cannoli ice cream in cannoli cones make for a fun take on this classic Italian treat.
Sea salt is sprinkled on top of the PBBJ ice cream: peanut butter, balsamic jelly, and brown butter croutons. A complex and an almost savory bite.
Peach Pie Ice Cream
Another pie ice cream, this time with peaches.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream
Rich peanut butter ice cream with swirls of jelly gets scooped out for the tasters.
Honeysuckle Tres Leches Ice Cream
Made with coconut milk, red jam, and topped with a crumble, this mouthful was an unusual variation on the Mexican dessert.
Cococado Ice Cream
Young ice cream makers scoop out Cococado ice cream—ice cream made with coconut and avocado.
S'mores Ice Cream
With a marshmallow fluff taste and chunks of graham crackers swirled into the mix, this was a much cooler version of the campfire treat.
Nine out of the 20 ice creams available for tasting.
Ice Cream and Sorbet
Ice creams and sorbets go scoop to scoop in the Brooklyn Ice Cream Takedown.
