Pledge Allegiance to Little Baby's Ice Cream

It lives up to the hype

little baby's ice cream!

In this heat, you represent at ice cream parlors from the East to West Coast.

But here’s a scoop: Little Baby’s new spot is the joint.

Its mobile ice creameries dole out a handful of flavors; at the shop, choices expand to more than a dozen. That means extra space for floats and ice cream cookie sandwiches (snickerdoodle chai, blood orange black sesame).

The owners (who are former musicians) take a rogue approach. When word got out about the Four Loko ban, they stocked up to produce neon blue scoops. Champagne with Lucky Charms didn’t fly, but pizza — pale pink ice cream with speckles of oregano — remains a winner.

The interior is equally as zany; Jason Hsu’s mix of patterns makes for an atmosphere Flavor Flav would feel at home in.

That’s wassup.
