According to the folks at wdwmagic.com, it seems that Ample Hills Creamery products might be served in a new ice cream shop coming to the former location of the ESPN Club Arcade (the ESPN Club is still open, but the arcade section has been closed).
According to wdwmagic, the husband and wife team who run Ample Hills in Brooklyn, NY, secured a license to create Star Wars Ice Cream flavors: the Dark Side and the Light Side. The relationship has led to speculation that a possible new ice cream stop coming to the BoardWalk may feature Ample Hills Creamery handmade ice cream.
The Dark Side sounds like a feast for chocolate lovers and Siths alike. Per the Ample Hills Creamery website, it’s “an ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso-fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls (to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through).” The Light Side, meanwhile, is “a bright marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters, as well as a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies (to represent the dark side still lurking within the light).”
Also from the Ample Hills website: “We start by using the best ingredients; hormone free milk and cream from grass fed cows and organic cane sugar. We pasteurize our ice cream base so that we can create individually specific flavors…”
If this pans out, it sounds like nothing but good news for ice cream fans, Star Wars fans, Disney fans… and those not-so-rare birds among us who are a combo of all three!
And, you know what? Even if it doesn’t pan out and these folks don’t open a store in Disney World, there’s still STAR WARS ICE CREAM OUT THERE AND YOU NEED TO GET SOME!!!!!!!! Buy it here!!!
