The Slickest Ice Cream Around

IMG_2695Living in Franconia and spending most of my time in the Littleton area, Slick’s is well-known as the best ice cream in the area. I’d enjoyed it before at local ice cream stands but had never visited their own location in Woodsville, NH. When they proudly announced they’d be opening for Mother’s Day weekend, I made plans to make the trip with my husband.

IMG_2685Slick’s ice cream stand itself is adorable. It may be in the middle of nowhere, but it’s easy to find, and the stand is clearly lovingly taken care of. Since this was dinner for both my husband and I, we went with a medium, and we inquired about some unusual flavors. When we asked if we could get two flavors in a medium, she said that actually, a medium had 3 scoops, so we could get 3 flavors! We both eagerly took on the challenge of choosing a third flavor.
Here are the results of our epic dinner which was really a sampler of all Slick’s has to offer. Their prices are pretty cheap too!

Ross Selections:

IMG_2707Bite This – Peanut butter ice cream with chocolate chunks. The peanut butter ice cream is luscious! Almost like the texture of soft serve. So good, just a perfect base, even for this woman who is unlikely to choose a peanut butter ice cream normally.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup – It’s a classic and it’s very good, just a fabulous combo, rich and smooth.

Starry Night – Dark chocolate with white chocolate chips – the dark chocolate is rich, not too dark, an awesome chocolate that I haven’t found in this particular flavor. Great compliment to the white chips. However, its really fudgy base texture wasn’t Ross’ favorite.

Jamie Selections:

IMG_2701Sugar on Snow -I ordered this one blindly figuring it had to be great based on its delicious namesake (hot maple syrup poured over snow and then stirred with a fork to a taffy-esque consistency). It’s maple ice cream with marshamllows. Insanely good! It unfortunately melts much quicker than the rest, so avoid this in hot weather or just make it a shake!

Cake Batter – Classic flavor, no fill ins. Delightful and simple and very sweet, and it was just perfect to mix with the Sugar on Snow.

Raspberry Cheesecake – Wow, the texture of this ice cream is so close to actual cheesecake! It’s a fabulous cheesecake ice cream base with very real raspberry swirl and good cheesecake bites. Probably the best cheesecake ice cream I have had, and Ross agrees.

We loved the “normal” bowls instead of a typical ice cream bowl because it gave us a real sampler to choose from as we ate and tested. Overall, Slick’s is a very good to excellent ice cream, and it’s definitely the best ice cream we’ve found in northern New Hampshire.
