Phin & Phebes Brooklyn Ice Cream

Back when I wrote about Steve’s Ice Cream, I mentioned that I was first drawn to the pints because of the hand written labels. I had a similar attraction to the whimsical designs on the labels of Phin & Phebe’s ice cream. Imagine my delight when I discovered they are a local company, started by a couple right here in Brooklyn. Since I first discovered them a couple of months ago I’ve done my duty and sampled many of their flavors. The Vietnamese Coffee was rich and agreeably bitter; the Ginger Cookie Snap had chunks of cookies in it; the Coconut Key Lime had rich coconut flavor with the sour tang of limes. My favorite by far has been the Banana Whama: banana pudding ice cream (not banana ice cream, banana pudding ice cream) with chunks of vanilla wafers. Even now in the dead of winter, I’m happy to eat this locally made frozen treat.

    Thank you so much for the write up! We’re so happy to hear you’re enjoying the ice cream. You didn’t mention the Vanilla Cinnamon but we think you’d really like that one. Where do you do your shopping?

    Thanks again!

    Great! We have a delivery going to that store today so they should be stocked. Let us know if for some reason you don’t see it there!

    @jess – ha, thanks, i’ll stop by this afternoon. for the record it’s not that they’ve been out of it in the past, it’s only that even i can only eat so much ice cream.

    Did you try the vanilla cinnamon yet? It is excellent. I agree with Banana Whama being the best though. The whole concept of it is ingenius.

    @ Rob C – yeah, i’ve tried all of their flavors now. did you get a chance to read my profile of them? when they first made the coconut key lime flavor they baked a whole key lime pie and blended it in with a coconut ice cream. they are the best.
