Lick Honest Ice Creams -homemade ice cream just tastes better.
Lick Honest Ice Creams was just named one of America’s top 33 best ice cream shops, and they currently call Austin and San Antonio, Texas their home.
Today Lick opens its doors at their third location off Burnet Road, in Austin. I was invited to a sneak preview of the opening last night where I had a nice intimate and honest ice cream experience with the owners Chad and Anthony.
They started Lick Honest Ice Creams in 2011 on the idea that homemade ice cream just tastes better, and boy were they right!
Anthony originally from a rural town in Pennsylvania and Chad from a rural town in Texas decided to pack up and move to Austin to open Lick Honest Ice Creams.
It’s exciting to see such passion for a craft, and such simple but elegant flavors that clearly keep people coming back for more.
The location off Burnet Road features a bigger seated area over the South Lamar flagship store, and the owners are looking forward to offering their patrons another location to appease their appetites.
There were over 20 flavors.
Some year round flavors include Texas Sheet Cake, Too Hot Chocolate, and Roasted Beets & Fresh Mint. But it was the Seasonal flavors that I found some new favorites like Horchata and Dewberry Corn Cobbler.
This trip to Lick was so special for me, and I think it’s a great representation of who Lick Honest Ice Creams is as a brand. Lily, one of the amazing people who works at Lick, was so kind and when I walked up to ask about flavors, she could tell I just couldn’t quite pick one to try…
So she let me try every. single. flavor. Heaven!
Ultimately I fell for the Dewberry Corn Cobbler and Horchata, and had to get a double scoop in a cone. I will say shortly after snapping this photo I had “Scoop envy” and we had to add another flavor, lemon lavendar, right on top.
Because yeah, ice cream at Lick rules!
I really hope you get to check out Lick Honest Ice Creams next time you’re visiting Austin (or San Antonio), or just a local looking for something to do on a Wednesday night.
