Bloggery media rep Sara swung by 3 Scoops in Brighton this past weekend to checkout the newest ice cream shop in town.  I can tell she had a good time because she wrote back with an entry longer than 2 weeks worth of my entries combined.  Here's what she had to say:

Upon entering 3 Scoops, I was greeted by Raul, one of the ice-cream makers. He showered me with samples of some of the most rich and tasty homemade ice creams, which instantly boosted him to the top of my Favorite Men on Earth list (yes- it’s really that easy!) The flavors I got to try included Mud Pie, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry (the best I’ve ever had), Butter Pecan, Coconut, and two vegan flavors- Peanut Butter and Jelly and Vanilla Cucumber. All of the flavors were incredible and jam-packed with filling like Oreos, nuts, and pieces of fruit. Surprisingly to me, the PB&J (apparently one of their most popular flavors) was delicious - tasted just like the real thing! Turns out, vegan ice cream can be made in many different ways, using bases like soy or coconut milk, and you can’t even taste the difference! 3 Scoops also specializes in frozen yogurt, sorbets, and gluten-free ice creams, and all of their desserts are organic and made from fresh, local ingredients.

During the ice cream sampling, I mentioned to Raul that it was my birthday, and I couldn’t have asked for a better gift than spending my afternoon enjoying free ice cream. He then insisted on making me a birthday dessert. A few minutes later, my friend and I were greeted with two ice cream sundaes (Coconut and Coffee Oreo) served up in mini Red Sox hats AND a nice, warm apple pie, complete with birthday candles and a Happy Birthday sing-along. Thankful that I didn’t eat any lunch that day, I took a deep breath and dug in. A good 15 or 20 minutes later, my friend and I were feeling proud of ourselves for the large dent we made in our desserts, when Raul offered us Coconut Frappes (and he would not take no for an answer). The frappes were delicious, and our feast was finished off with warm chocolate- chip cookies. Literally, the only way the folks at 3 Scoops could have given me a better experience is if they had rolled me out in a wheelbarrow!

I can’t wait to go back to 3 Scoops. Located right in Brighton Center, the area is reminiscent of Coolidge Corner making it a great place to walk around with an ice cream cone on a warm day. My visit to 3 Scoops has also made me excited for my next trip to NYC… Apparently there’s 3 Scoops ice cream truck in SoHo which features alcoholic ice cream. Yum!

    3 Scoops has been there for years. Why are you calling it the newest in town? On top of that, Abbott's Frozen Custard JUST opened about a block up Washington at the corner with Chestnut Hill Ave making it *easily* the newest ice cream shop in the area.

    lil confused why you think 3 scoops is new to Brighton Center...its been there for a bit; it closes for a bit during the winter and then reopens for the season.

    Uh this place has been open for a couple of years now. What about Abbott's that just opened up down the street?

    I'm confused. This post says 3 Scoops is "the newest ice cream shop in town" but it's been there for at least 4 years, maybe more. An actually new ice cream place recently opened in the same neighborhood, though. Is this review about 3 Scoops or about Abbott's Frozen Custard? Abbott's Frozen Custard.
    I've never gone to either place, but I'd still like to know which place Sara was raving about!

    I don't know if this place is really new, we have been enjoying it seasonally for years.

    3 Scoops got new owners and new flavors, therfor it's new. Abbott's is just industrial made ice cream and a big chain, why would you promote that? The flavors from 3 Scoops are really original and they only use ingredients from local farmers. You should help small businesses like that.

    Actually, one of the employees said that the owners are the same 3 brothers. They just have decided to pursue other things and have instead hired a manager and employees. They do have a few new flavors, but otherwise everything else is the same amazing ice cream shop as before!

    Who cares if it's a new or old ice cream shop. The main part is that the reviewer said it's very good. Move on?
