Nevada City ice cream

The weather is warming up in Nevada City and it’s a perfect time to visit our friends at Treats.  As you can see below their ice cream doesn’t last long!  Peggy & Bob Wright describe their ice cream as “Homemade artisans ice cream, made with local and organic ingredients, when possible.”  If you’re not in the mood for ice cream try a scoop of gelato, a fresh baked cookie or a latte.  Located at 110 York Street across the street from Ike’s Quarter Cafe.  The Outside Inn is excited to say that we’ve got a special giveaway to our blog readers, 2 lucky winners will receive a free pint of ice cream.  Please post a comment on this post telling us your favorite ice cream flavor and I’ll draw the winner on Monday, May 14th.  And speaking of winners, the lucky winner of last week’s giveaway from the Briar Patch Co-op post is Athena, stop on by the Outside Inn for your new set of Stack’d Everday Napkins.

    Hard to pick a favorite! Lemon custard is pretty hard to pass up. The mushroom they had a little while ago was awesome! It’s ALL good!

    It is a hard choice, but the new California Bay Ice Cream is my favorite. It is delicious, 100% local from our native California Bay and unlike anything I have ever tasted before.

    I haven’t tried the Bay Laurel leaf yet, but I made a chocolate cake with bay leaf syrup last year that I loved! Hiking on Stephen’s Trail this weekend, I saw wild California bay leaf growing and it reminded me of the yumminess. I’ll have to get to Treats to try their bay leaf ice cream soon!

    Hi Erin : )

    My favorites are Swiss Orange Chip, Raspberry Chip and Lemon Custard. Now I’m craving ice cream…I’ll have to run down and grab some as soon as I can cut out of here!

    First I look for something with the word “Ginger” in it. If no luck, then lemon varieties usually get my vote!

    Even though all of Treats’ ice cream is the best ever, I am a total sucker for the mint chip…mmmm!

    lemon custard or a scoop of pistachio with a scoop of chocolate. One of our favorite spots in NC!

    All of the ice cream flavors at Treat are incredible. The Mint Chip has such a fresh taste of mint, it’s fabulous. Even the vanilla is a real treat.

    I love this place! My fav. flavor is the pear ginger. They even have a vegan ice cream if you’re so inclined. They have gluten free cones too! If you’re not familiar with NC it might be easy to miss. Look for it tucked away on York Street.

    I don’t know how you’re going to send me a pint of ice cream in Seattle without it melting but my current favorite flavor is salted caramel. Yum.

    Without a doubt, hands down, it’s swiss orange chip! I have my collages displayed in the shop currently and no matter how hard I try to not give in when I’m the shop, I have to have a scoop! It calls my name so loudly that I must appease the noise lol.

    When I worked at Baskin Robbins my favorite flavor was pralines & cream…no-one could pronounce it…chocolate peanut butter cup was always a winner, too. Licorice at Halloween time…turned everyone’s mouths black. Do they have green tea ice cream? Yum!

    Hmmmmm… If I have to choose, I would say the fresh mint chip ice cream, made with the mint from their garden, it is delicious!
