WHO WE ARE

OUR STORY

Scoops began as a delicious idea for us back in 2015. When we joined the La Jolla Shores community back in 2013, we immediately realized what the shores were missing- a place for families to enjoy quality ice cream by the beach together. I convinced my son to leave his busy San Francisco life to move back to San Diego and begin the journey to Scoops. We searched high and low to find the best-handcrafted ice cream to bring to the community of La Jolla because we believe ice cream is a dessert that is meant to be shared with everyone. As a family of self-proclaimed ice cream aficionados (we LOVE ice cream) we can’t wait to bring our vision of decadent ice cream to you!

Vision

At Scoops we understand that Ice Cream is a magical treat. With that we made sure in our endless search of Ice Cream to provide the best and most natural product for our customers. After months of searching we are proud to be serving New York’s own Van Leeuwan Artisan Ice Cream. The Classic and Vegan ice creams are made with just a handful of fresh ingredients. Each flavor is a celebration of some of the world’s best artisan producers and farmers both local and from around the world.

All the ice cream is made from scratch in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The Classic scoops are crafted with nothing more than fresh milk and cream, cane sugar, and egg yolks. The Vegan scoops are made with cashew milk, organic coconut milk, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic cane sugar, pure cocoa butter, and organic carob bean. Both recipes result in rich, decadent, naturally perfect ice cream. We believe that ice cream is a delicious treasure and the sweet life you deserve!

Michel Cluizel is a small family-run French company committed to producing the highest quality chocolate. All of the chocolates and cocoa powders are produced without soy lecithin. The raw cacao comes from eight single biodynamic and organic plantations. Its Ultra-high cocoa butter content provides a rich and creamy mousse-like texture.

Chocolate

Vanilla is a complex flavor with over 200 compounds that give it its unique taste. Organic bourbon and Tahitian vanilla pods grown in Papua, New Guinea are used. The beans are cured in the sun concentrate flavor, then cold ground and steeped in our rich custard base. Using the entire bean allows all the pod pulp to come through, resulting in a wonderfully nuanced and balanced flavor.

Vanilla Bean

Surprisingly made using no honey at all, honeycomb is a crunchy, chewy, caramel candy. This ice cream breaks it into chunks and is folded it into our sweet cream base. The honeycomb remains crispy on the inside, chewy on the outside and bleeds micro ribbons of caramel throughout the ice cream. An Australian classic and new American favorite.

Honeycomb

We upped the ante on this American classic. Dark chocolate cookies are made using Michel Cluizel Chocolate, sandwich white chocolate ganache between them, broken up and folded into the sweet cream base with a touch of cold ground Tahitian Vanilla bean.
