While wandering through the adorable and awesome college town of Denton, Texas, about an hour north of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Ross and I stumbled on Beth Marie’s, a charming homemade ice cream parlor. We each scooped up three flavors for a total of $9.40 before tip, and although it wasn’t life-changing, it was very tasty.
Ross’ flavors are a bit hard to report as I accidentally deleted them! I know he got Krissy’s French Toast and reported that it was a very satisfying flavor I would love. There was also Butter Brickle that he enjoyed. And according to my limited notes., the third flavor had a creamy, milky base that was very good but didn’t break the mold.
Salty Dog – This was a dulce de leche base with salted caramel. The caramel was delightful! This is a super solid flavor with good consistency, especially considering it’s premium, not super-premium, ice cream. It wasn’t too sweet either.
Dark Side Mint – This is a very dark chocolate base, with a touch of mint, with York peppermint patties. The base is rich and deep. Overall the texture is a little rough, but I liked it.
Bee’s Knees – This is a lavender base with honey. I found it gentle and buttery and lovely. But I love lavender, so your mileage may vary. Ross said “It tastes the way expensive soap smells”!
We found Beth Marie’s affordable, beautiful and charming. It’s a perfect fit for the circle in downtown Denton. I wouldn’t call it a destination necessarily, but it’s an excellent stop while you’re in town to visit the amazing bookstore, comics shop and everything else Denton has to offer.
