It's no secret that we're pretty big sci-fi fans here at Ample Hills (see: our Star Wars flavors
, Brian's previous career as a sci-fi screenwriter, It Came From Gowanus, When Spuds Attack!, the list goes on). Needless to say, the staff was beyond excited about the return of the beloved '90s TV show, The X-Files. Some of us grew up watching it, tuning in on Sundays nights; newer fans have recently binge watched all 9 seasons.
Hundreds of entries on Instagram and Facebook answered our call to fellow fans/X-Philes to create and name a new limited-edition flavor celebrating the return of Mulder and Scully, including some amazing references: Queequeg, Mulder's love of sunflower seeds, tofutti, Flukeman and Babe Ruth.
Although competition was delightfully fierce, 2 winners rose above the fray: @danascullystyle and @wirehanded. The winning flavor: The Truth Is In Here is a paranormal green pistachio ice cream with swirls of chocolate (alien blood), chocolate covered sunflower seeds (which also look like alien eyes!) and hidden "microchips."
The Truth Is In Here will be available at our Vanderbilt and Gowanus shops starting Saturday, February 20th.
