50 Licks

It’s been so warm in Portland this summer, but luckily we have a lot of delicious ice cream stores to try! 50 Licks is just around the corner from Portland Digs. They have very creative flavors that are a bit more subtle than similar artisanal ice cream shops. I like subtle. I tried jasmine tea ice cream, a coconut saffron vegan flavor, and ended up purchasing Tahitian vanilla with bee pollen as topping. Yum. I got it in a cup out of habit, but then found out that their waffle cones are gluten-free! She gave me one for free since I was so excited about that. Also fun, is the art on the walls. They are common pastoral landscapes that you might find in a second hand store, but someone has painted in giant ice cream cones.
