I was a little disappointed by Creole Creamery. Maybe it is the best place for ice cream in New Orleans, or even Louisiana, but I found it to be lacking that extra pizazz. The flavor options were certainly unique and alluring, but the promise fell short. I came on a warm weekday in the evening, which is probably prime time for ice cream goers. The line was incredibly long, and went slower than I expected. Note: It's cash only, so be prepared! I taste tested a couple flavors, and wasn't in love with what I tried, so I just ordered four scoops of the mini scoop sampler for $5, which I highly recommend if you are indecisive about flavors like me. I tried: - Bananas Foster (probably my favorite because I love banana flavored ice cream) - King Cake (Meh. Didn't taste like anything distinctly, except sweet) - Molasses Oatmeal Cookie (not molassesey enough) - Green Fairy (supposed to be absinthe flavored, but super subtle. Probably my least favorite) All in all, I found the ice cream to be a bit bland, not flavorful enough. I like distinct flavors when it comes to trying interesting ice cream flavors, and these were just a let down. Or... maybe I just chose all the wrong flavors, and this place truly rocks, which could be possible. I guess if you're from the Bay Area in California, which boasts a LOT of great local ice cream chains, be prepared for disappointment. If not, you may love this place!
It's an ice cream shop that has a range of regular to exotic flavors of ice cream. They even have sorbet. Their flavors are always changing so make sure you give them a call or visit their locations. They have an ice cream challenge called The Tchoupitoulas. It consists of eight scoops of ice cream and your choice of eight toppings served with whipped cream, cherries, and wafers; if you complete the challenge with no help you get yourself on their hall of fame plaque. This challenge is only available at their Prytania Street location. I ordered the Ice Cream Sampler for $4.50 that comes with 4 mini scoops of any of their flavors. My favorite was their coconut sorbet and my least favorite was their spicy mango with a hint of cayenne. Their pistachio and their elderberry flavors were decent.
People rave about their ice cream, but I wasn't very impressed. The unusual flavors were rather muted. They have tons of flavors, but you can't see them because they go all the way down the counter (where people are standing), but they take your order at the beginning. Plus, they limit how much you can taste (which wouldn't be a problem if they had normal flavors - you can't have it both ways folks).
