I recently visited Two Roosters in Raleigh. Located in a strip mall, they’ve got a cute location and a fondness for quirky flavors.
At $5 for a single, I was pleasantly surprised by my two, large scoops, so expect ample portions here, even if it’s on the pricier side.
This is a small and cute location, and they patiently let us try tons of flavors. Their simple and charming menu offers a mix of regular flavors and “guests” that rotate out.
Here’s what we sampled:
Christmas Tree – This is pine flavor ice cream with pine nuts. Wow wow wow!!!! It’s such a fun flavor, goes down easy and it’s pretty creamy. I love it!!! Even if the consistency isn’t in my top five, the flavor makes this one of the best I’ve had!
Classic Chocolate – This is super smooth, a bit more fudge than creamy, definitely classic chocolate verging on the lighter side. It’s very good, approaching excellent. Especially good if you enjoy a fudgier flavor.
Spiked Eggnog – This tastes just like eggnog with whiskey. They couldn’t confirm if it was gluten free, unfortunately, so I didn’t get a scoop. Thankfully the eggnog at Fresh was gluten-free so I got my fix.
Whiskey Gingerbread and Molasses – It’s good. A very gingerbread flavor, with a good texture, according to Ross.
Butterscotch Haystack – This is a sweet cream base with lo mein noodles covered in butterscotch. What a concept! Ross enjoyed it, but he wanted more butterscotch or more haystack.
Roasted Strawberry and Honey – Honestly, this just tasted like strawberry ice cream. Good, if that’s what you’re craving!
Slingshot Coffee Bourbon – Somewhere between a light and creamy Brigham’s style and a darker coffee is where this lives…almost like a coffee latte. It’s very, very good and might make top five. We didn’t get the bourbon flavor at all though, so don’t go in just for that!
Two Roosters is a really fun place, with unique flavors for the adventurous foodie. If you missed it, I also visited Fresh and Treat in Raleigh. And if you enjoyed this, you might also like A Sweet Treat at Sweet Cow.
