    Pickle Ice Cream Exists In NYC And It's Actually Not Bad

    *Reevaluates life choices*

    Hello everyone, I'm Arielle, and I was brave enough to try pickle ice cream. This is my story.

    A restaurant on the Upper West Side in Manhattan just opened, and it's called Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co.

    And yes, you guessed it, they serve dumplings.

    It's another restaurant by Jacob Hadjigeorgis, who also owns Jacob's Pickles and Maison Pickle.

    But besides dumplings and cold noodles, they also have pickle ice cream. PICKLE. ICE. CREAM. 😳

    Because I hate myself, I decided to try this soft serve and pray that my intestines would remain intact.

    So I ordered one, got my camera out, and hoped for the best.

    And surprisingly, it was good??? It tasted more like cucumber and honey than pickles. It had a hint of sour, but not overwhelming.

    Even a child came in and asked for the pickle ice cream. On purpose.

    I'm sort of questioning everything in my life, but cheers to hipster food and new experiences I guess.

    Lucky Pickle Dumpling is on Amsterdam Ave between 84th and 85th streets.
