Sweet Scoops and Slopes in Lincoln, NH

 

I’m working in Lincoln, New Hampshire, this summer, so I’d be slacking if I didn’t try out all of their ice cream offerings.

The main game in town is White Mountain Creamery. Their delicious homemade ice cream is served up at two locations – one indoor parlor in Lincoln called Udderly Delicious, and one outdoor stand in North Woodstock called Coneheads.

One word of warning? They advertise 24 flavors of soft serve. Those are basically never homemade (the flavors are out of a package) so stick to their homemade stuff if you want the good stuff.

I visited both locations – of course and can report they’re both worth a visit, depending on what’s more convenient. North Woodstock has parking behind the building if it’s too busy on the street – and you can walk to the river which is really pretty.

Here’s what my husband and I had at Coneheads, with a report of course!

Black Raspberry Chip – Ross, my husband, loves this. It’s nice and smooth, although it’s a bit milder of a flavor than I’d prefer.

Caramel Cup – It’s a caramel ice cream, with caramel swirl and chocolate caramel truffles. The caramel base is great, and this is pretty luscious with awesome truffles. I really enjoyed it.

Coffee Cookie Dough – This coffee flavor is my favorite! But unfortunately she gave me coffee oreo…delightful but not as unusual as what I asked for. 🙂

Chocolate chip cheesecake – This is really fun. It’s a great flavor, though not the best cheesecake I’ve had – that distinction goes to Slick’s. The chocolate chips are small and tasty, not super rich but sufficient. Creamy and not too thick!

Chocolate – It’s rich, dark and not too sweet. Super good!

Prices are very reasonable – $4.25 if you stick to a reasonable 2 scoops.

Next I visited Udderly Delicious in Lincoln. I got three scoops (couldn’t resist!), and Ross got one repeat (I’d gotten it last time) – the chocolate chip cheesecake.

Ginger Snap – Ginger ice cream – so delightful!!! It is very strong with tasty chunks of cookie, which is pretty soft and chewy. The base is smooth and creamy.

Banana Oreo – This base is super fun, not too sweet. It reminds me of banana bread. The big chunks of oreo are a very nice compliment to it too. lf you like banana, check this out.

Coffee Cookie Dough – The base is light and full of flavor, just like the coffee oreo – this type of coffee always reminds me of Brigham’s. And the cookie dough pieces are a fun treat.

With tax, for 3 scoops and one scoop, I paid $10.30 or so. Probably the same at both locations I believe.

(I was clearly so eager that I forgot to take a photo at the start!)

You’ve also got another ice cream option in Lincoln, and from the street passing by, you wouldn’t necessarily know which one had homemade and which one got their ice cream elsewhere.

As far as I know, Ice Cream Delights doesn’t make their own ice cream, but without any idea that there was any homemade ice cream in Lincoln when I first visited, I stopped here and was astonished by how affordable it was. I’m not sure whose ice cream they carry – let me know if you know!

During my most recent visit, here’s what I got.

Blueberry Cheesecake Yogurt – I’m a sucker for a good yogurt, particularly for dinner. I know I tried this one a while back and I had to review it. It was a tad icy this time, so it must not be very popular, but it’s wonderfully creamy, not too sweet and the cheesecake is very good – rather astonishing for a yogurt! I will probably get this any time I go here (though realistically, I’d always choose the homemade options first) because this yogurt is so good!

Cappucchino Crunch – This is a coffee base with chocolate swirl and toffee bits. The base is excellent, the toffee is delicious and the chocolate swirl reminds me of moose tracks ice cream. Fantastic!!!

This place isn’t homemade, as far as I know. But it’s super cheap – $3.76 for a medium which seems large to me. I also love that they serve it in big bowls, like Slick’s, so you can reach all of the flavors at once. So although the flavors probably won’t be as consistent as White Mountain Creamery, so far I’ve had excellent luck here!

Whenever you’re in Lincoln, whether it’s to ski or hike or see a show, you’ve got lots of options. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
