Not too long ago, I posted about Molly's Pops in Hongdae, a quaint little store that sells handmade ice cream in all kinds of quirky flavours, including alcoholic ones. As it turns out, Molly's now has a second branch called 'On A Stick', located in Sinsadong's Garosugil. This is fabulous news for ice cream aficionados on the south side, as you now no longer need to journey all the way over to Hongdae for all your kooky flavoured ice cream fixes.
On A Stick is a tad more expensive than the Hongdae store (4,000 won per ice cream, as opposed to 3,500 won.. Gangnam prices, eh?) but it appears to have more alcoholic varieties available, alongside a whole host of other tempting, fruity flavours. These were on offer when I last visited:
Grapefruit champagne, made with real grapefruit pulp.
Deliciously fruity and refreshing.
Guiness beer flavour, rum & raisin flavour
Rum & raisin was awesome and not overly sweet like it usually is at other places. Guiness beer was like a gobstopper with multiple layers -- at first bite it tasted kind of chocolaty, then it started to taste malty, then towards the end the bitterness kicked in.. It was great, and I don't even like beer. Hah!
If you're looking for a quick fix sugar rush and ice cream just isn't enough, perhaps some ice cream macarons will get your juices going:
Various flavours, 4,500 won each
There are also some fancy drinks to be had including Kahlua affogatos and cocktail floats:
Like the Hongdae branch, On A Stick is quite small and only has a few tables but this makes it feel cosy and the decor is quite chic at the same time.
They've also got a cool superheroes theme going and you can purchase some odds and ends like mugs and notebooks.
With summer bearing down on us now, I'm preeeeetty sure I'll be back soon to gobble down more of these delectable ice creams! >:D
