Grand opening! Blank Slate Creamery in Ann Arbor
Jenny and I woke up early this bright Sunday morning to get in line for the grand opening of Blank Slate Creamery! It’s at Liberty and First, just a block away from Mark’s Carts. There’s a small parking lot on site, but we parked at a lot a little bit away and walked over. We got there at 11, and there was already a long line, which only grew longer as the official opening time of 11:30 drew nearer. The first 300 people received freezer-safe cups with the store’s logo, which you can use to get extra ice cream!
There were lots of design details that I liked. The store was covered in blackboard paint, and buckets of chalk adorned the tables. Jenny whipped up some adorable pics. Everyone wore black with pink suspenders.
There were tons of flavors to choose from. Our favorite was the salty caramel coffee. The balsamic strawberry that I was most excited for unfortunately tasted more strawberry than balsamic, although it was still fruity and delicious. This ice cream had amazing texture – it was so soft, fluffy, and whipped; it brought to mind gelato more than ice cream. I hope that the pint I brought home keeps this amazing texture after I store it in my regular old freezer.
We had a great time at the grand opening of Blank Slate Creamery, and I think it’s a great place to get some delicious and fluffy ice cream in the warm Ann Arbor Summer. Check them out on Yelp or at their website!
