Some of these are just plain scary, but props to our Brrr machine, our SF neighbors and friends at Humphry Slocombe and the cool folks making wind-powered ice cream Sweet Action Ice Cream for making Discovery News list of 10 "crazy" ways to make ice cream!

Took my daughter to Smitten Ice Cream last weekend and was very disappointed that there was no vanilla (?) - the whole reason we made the drive as it is her favorite. Left the store empty handed and probably won't return anytime soon :-(

A few weeks back, we hosted a CreativeMornings/ San Francisco Field Trip at our Pacific Heights shop. There, we met the fabulous Stephanie Simos, whose beautiful photography of our ice cream has made us swoon! Check out what she has to say about our Fresh Mint Chip and some other seasonal flavors at: All images courtesy of Stephanie Simos Photography.

When did you guys stop mixing flavors? I used to have a scoop of each flavor on my cone, but the young man said they don't mix them! I also had a burnt cone! The young man at the front taking orders also kept zoning out starring at other people , not paying attention to the people in front of him! This was at the Rockland location in Oakland. Are there any other locations near by? If they don't mix flavors I really don't see a point in coming back anyway. For 6.75 +tax for a cone, you should be able to get any flavors you like in my opinion! Minus the burnt cone!

We think we have pretty cool jobs here at Smitten - from serving guests a triple scoop in a freshly-made waffle cone and seeing the smile on their faces to taste-testing new flavors, it's always a fun day at the Smitten office. But our day got a little sweeter when our team got trained to ride scooters thanks to Scoot! We're now officially hooked on scooting around town. But don't just take our word for it - check out this video, and try not to laugh too hard at us. Or go for it. We're still smiling. And if you're already a member of Scoot nation, hop on a scoot and head to Smitten through Friday for a free ice cream if you show your Scoot helmet or keys! Tag a photo of your free scoop with #ScootIsSmitten and Scoot will hook you up with a free ride. Because they're the best, duh. Not a Scoot member yet? Sign up for only $10 at:

Thank you!! We drove all the way from Eureka this weekend, hoping to find fun and different foods we'd heard about. We got one cookie dough, and one lemon, and they were phenomenal. SO good- we'll be back someday! :)
