While beginning my research on Austin, TX I came across one of my favorite things– Ice Cream and Gelato! Apparently they have quite a scene for both. One that popped up multiple times was Amy’s Ice Cream.

On Amy’s Ice Creams’ Official website it states that Amy’s Ice Creams was “established in 1984, Amy’s handcrafts artisan super premium ice creams, dairy-free fruit ices and frozen yogurt! Home of the world famous Mexican Vanilla Ice Cream. With over 350 flavors in rotation your every visit will be a new flavor adventure! We’ve grown up in Austin, Texas and now have shops in Houston and San Antonio!”

According to Yelp Amy’s Ice Cream has 4 stars. I myself would probably give it 3 stars. It was good, but it wasn’t great, and it certainly was not the best I ever had.

I visited the Amy’s Ice Creams at 1301 S. Congress in Austin on January 1, 2017. I got the Zilker Mint Chocolate as I unfortunately didn’t know about the Mexican Vanilla being what Amy’s Ice Creams was known for. The ice cream didn’t taste as fresh as I would have expected and seemed like it was perhaps a couple days old. It didn’t seem as if it were very creamy. It’s a stand that has a cute atmosphere for sure, but isn’t a place I’d go running back to anytime soon.
