Ice Cream Wasted

February 1, 2017

I had just one thought after visiting Ice Cream Wasted, ice cream + booze = happiness.  Colton and I jumped at the opportunity to try out the new Ice Cream Wasted tasting room in Plano on Friday.  Not only are these sweet treats delicious, but they are gorgeous to look at.  I asked Bri, the owner, how she came up with the idea, and she replied “someone had to.”  That someone is Bri Calloway, and she is my hero.

The history

Bri relocated Ice Cream Wasted from Houston to Plano, and she opened her tasting room a couple of weeks ago.  She creates all of her flavors from scratch and puts together an entire experience.  From the presentation, to the combination of flavors, every detail is artistic, beautiful, and delicious.

Now, in Plano, you can schedule a private or group tasting online, or you can order your own pints for pickup.  You can even create your own pint using a variety of flavors.  This would be great for a fun date night, bachelorette party, birthday or just a Friday (or Tuesday).

The ice cream

All of the flavors at Ice Cream Wasted are vegan friendly, made without dairy milk, and infused with alcohol, however they can be made virgin too. Bri changes out flavors all of the time, so there will always be something new to try.  The final product is much more than just delicious ice cream.  Each one is served atop a special cone made from special jams, honeys, flowers, alcohol and more.

One of our favorite flavors was the milk and honey.  The creamy honey ice cream is spiked with honey infused vodka, and the cone is made of Osmanthus tea flowers, ginger honey pear jam, honey crystals and orange honey.  Then, Bri tops it off with more honey crystals, acai honey and edible 24k gold flakes.

The flavor that tricked me the most was the green tea.  On a normal day, I would have never thought to order it, but it ended up being another favorite flavor of mine.  The ice cream is spiked with sake and served in a cone made from an aloe green tea melon liquor jam and faux gin caviar.  Then, Bri tops it off with a green poke stick, caviar, and crystalized ginger.  I don’t know if it was the hints of mint and ginger from the caviar or the sweetness of the green tea and jam, but this flavor combination was such a fun surprise.

Two other great flavors are the Orange Creamy Dreamy and S’mores.

Colton and my favorite flavor, however, was Celebration Cake.  Bri makes the cone with orange crush syrup, whipped cream vodka, and candy stars.  Then, she tops it with celebration cake ice cream spiked with iced cake vodka.  Just for fun, Bri tops it with champagne rock candy, candy legos, edible confetti, hardshell chocolate and a cupcake.

Celebration Cake

These are just a few of the amazing flavors you can try at the next tasting.  If the photos and descriptions aren’t enough to make you want to schedule a tasting, I don’t know what will convince you.  Be sure to check out the Love at First Bite (only 2 spots left!) event I listed on Monday’s north Dallas event post, or schedule your own tasting at a later date.

PIN for later
