Scoop-Ahh-Dee-Doo In Ellicott City

Scoop Ahh Dee Doo
Main Street in Ellicott City is one of the few real pedestrian dates that you can have in Howard County.

Walking is fun.  Walking with an ice cream cone is even better, and Scoop Ahh Dee Doo has opened a window on ice cream in the neighborhood.

Literally a window.  Scoop Ahh Dee Doo is an ice cream stand next to the Little French Market and just off the parking lot off Main Street.  They're importing Taharka Brothers Ice Cream.   That's the hippest ice cream company in Baltimore and a place with fans on Yelp.

Adam posted about Scoop Ahh Dee Doo in April.  He liked the ice cream itself, but he didn't like the bacon in the maple and bacon flavor.  I went simple with dark chocolate peppermint.  Really rich chocolate ice cream.  Peppermint flavor throughout the scoop -- not crunchy candy.  Two bucks for a scoop is actually a deal when the ice cream is that delicious.  It's worth even more on a hot day.

(Update:  Wordbones had posted Monday about Scoop Ahh Dee Doo with the delicious rave: "It is like eating a fat angel.")

Ellicott City, MD 21043

NEAR:  Scoop Ahh Dee Doo is on the Tongue Row collection of shops.  The buildings face Old Columbia Pike, but the shops are on the back side facing the parking lot off Main Street.  The shop is just to the right of the Little French Market.

Oh boy, yet another place in Historic I need to try! Do you think I"ll need a trip to the ER if I get the chocolate-covered grilled cheese AND ice cream on the same day?

My favorite is the Honey Graham... http://bit.ly/LAnoOC

The chocolate ice cream has an intense chocolaty taste and the kids love the Berger's Cookie ice cream. I haven't felt adventurous enough to try the bacon ice cream yet though.

The only disappointment was that the milkshakes are made from a soft-ice-cream like machine and not from the ice cream that is scooped.

Sigh! I missed this. We used to live in Oella Mills in Ellicott City, but moved to AA county in May. Feeling really homesick now!

I'm addicted to ScoopAhhDeeDoo. I had the key lime pie and now I can't stop thinking about it. It had these chunks of buttery graham cracker crust in it. MmmmMM!! If you haven't tried it yet you need to go there ASAP. And the quality of the product for only $2 a scoop is amazing.
