At Ample Hills, we love to make flavors inspired by our favorite TV shows and movies! You might remember when we celebrated the final episode of Breaking Bad with a Heisenberry flavor that included the “blue stuff” --prop candy imported from Albuquerque. We made a flavor for the much anticipated return of The X-Files, a flavor inspired by The Princess Bride and one for the finale of Mad Men. We even partnered with Lucasfilm last year to make limited-edition pints for the Light and the Dark Sides for Star Wars: Episode XII. Needless to say, we don’t shy away from pop culture references and love a good pun.
This Thanksgiving, Netflix is debuting a Gilmore Girls revival and we couldn’t be more excited to make a return visit to Stars Hollow! After a few managers made a trip to a Luke’s Diner pop-up, we got to thinking-- let’s make a Gilmore girls flavor!
We thought it would be fun to call on fans of the show to help us create and name a flavor! Amy Sherman-Palladino’s hit show has not only garnered a devoted fan-following, but the Gilmore girls, like us, appreciate junk food and the healing powers of ice cream.
We launched our flavor contest on Monday and the response has been amazing! It’s been featured here, here, here and here! We have over 1,400 entries and counting!
Here are some of our favorites names so far:
- Oy, With The Snickerdoodles Already
- Netflix and Chillton
- Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow
- Babette Ate Oatmeal
- Kirk’s Night Terrors
- Hep Alien
- Dean’s Tears
The contest is open through October 31st and the flavor will launch November 7th, well before the first snow. There’s still plenty of time to enter so order some take-out, cuddle with Paul Anka and hunker down to binge watch all seven seasons. Take inspiration from any of the show’s characters or episodes: Miss Patty’s dance lessons! Sebastian Bach’s extended cameo! Logan’s Life and Death Brigade!
