What's better than ice cream? How about ice cream sandwiched between two cookies!
We went to Big Spoon Creamery in the Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham, Ala. to talk about their delicious ice cream sammies!
Big Spoon Creamery
To really understand how the ice cream geniuses at Big Spoon Creamery come up with their amazing flavor combinations, you have to understand their history. Ryan and Geri-Martha, the owners of Big Spoon Creamery, both have extensive backgrounds as chefs. They both met while working at Bottega in Birmingham. The dream Ryan and Geri-Martha had when they started Big Spoon Creamery was to create an ice cream company that not only cared about making the best ice cream possible but cared even more about loving people and serving them well. In July 2014 that dream became a reality when they purchased a little old-school ice cream trike. The couple’s dream grew exponentially after that, quickly expanding to an ice cream truck, opening their first storefront in Avondale, and most recently opening a second location in Cullman at Mae’s Food Hall!
Ice Cream Sammies
Some of Big Spoon Creamery’s lucky ice cream flavors get paired with selected house-made cookies to create the perfect ice cream sandwich combo! The Sammies are $5.00 each and the flavors occasionally rotate. Below is a look at the current flavors being offered at Big Spoon Creamery.
