Wild Scoops is an inventive ice cream shop that makes small batches of hand crafted ice cream that are local, adventurous, and wildly delicious. This popular shop sells hundreds of cups and cones a day.
They started as a farmer's market booth in 2015 and opened a shop in downtown Anchorage in May 2017. Their delicious seasonal flavors are like Tundra Queen and Roasted Beet keeping everyone coming back for more.
Flavors are concocted using all of the bounty of Alaska from birch syrup collected from the forest outside Talkeetna or sea salt extracted from waters near Sitka. Foraged Alaskan wildberries are a star player.
Wild Scoops uses and sells products from a wide variety of other local businesses inclunding bakeries, distilleries and the Kombucha factory. Pumpkins and squash from local farms are made into autumnal favorites.
Spruce tips, the new growth on the branches of birch trees, lend a light, fresh tone to this seasonal ice cream in the early summer.
Salmonberries & Cream is a hit flavor when the brief salmonberry season hits with the summer heat wave. Salmonberries (Rubus spectabilis) are plump, delicately flavored yellow-orange berries native to the west coast of the U.S. and Alaska.
No flavor pallet of Alaska would be complete without wild Alaskan blueberries, the small, dark purple, tart cousin of the ones found elsewhere. The bold flavor is a standard at the shop.
Crazy special sundaes are created with cones and granola bowls hand made. They also make a "Baked Alaska" cone with torched marshmallow whip on top, a Smores-like delight.
Taking a page from microbreweries, they have an "ice cream flight"!!! You can try any 4 flavors in small cups if you can't decide on just one.
Sign up for their club to receive an ice cream bundle once a month and new ice cream pops and other treats. This creative and fun ice cream shop is delicious, and as wild as Alaska.
