Rory Gilmore didn’t even want to be the ice cream queen of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. She had just returned to town from hiking all over Europe, she was leaving for Yale earlier than expected — can you believe she wrote the date down wrong? — Taylor Doose didn’t even ask her! Well, just because Rory was ungrateful doesn’t mean her throne should remain vacant.
Gilmore Girls is coming back for a four-part revival on Netflix, and Brooklyn’s Ample Hills Creamery is getting in on the considerable hype surrounding the series. The scoop shop plans to debut a GG-themed flavor, and it’s calling on Sookie St. James wannabes to come up with the name and recipe. Ample Hills announced the stunt in an Instagram post earlier this week, offering an appropriate prize pack for the genius behind the winning creation.
The winner gets a free pint, a cup of coffee, and an invitation to Friday night dinner.
If you’re out on the road, feeling lonely and want something cold, all you have to do is name this scoop, and you'll win this in one fell swoop...It’s time to summon The Town Troubadour and call Michel to make a reservation at The Dragonfly: The #GilmoreGirls are returning this Thanksgiving, and we are making a flavor to celebrate. Whether you are Team Jess or Team Dean, we are calling on you to create and name a flavor worthy of this Stars Hollow reunion. Put on your Sookie chef hat, fill up at Luke's Diner, stop by Doose’s Market, and tap into your inner Paris Geller to fire up that competitive spirit to produce pop culture references so rapid-fire it would make Lauren Graham blush. Comment below with your suggested names and flavor combinations. The winner gets a free pint, a cup of coffee, and an invitation to Friday night dinner. Contest ends 10/31.
Ample Hills is asking contestants to submit flavor names and recipes via comments on the Instagram post, and the contest runs through October 31. As of this posting, more than 1,200 comments have been submitted. If Netflix’s recent pandemonium-inducing Luke’s Diner pop-ups are any indication, the Brooklyn scoop shop can expect the flavor to generate a fortune that would astonish even the likes of Emily and Richard Gilmore.
