It’s getting mighty hot out there, so the time is right for the Scooper Bowl, the biggest All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival in the country. On June 1-3, Bryant Park is hosting Scooper Bowl New York, three afternoons of ice-cold refreshment from well-known companies as well as smaller craft creameries. Serving up treats are Baskin-Robbins (Cannoli Be with You, New York Cheesecake, OREO ‘n Caramel, Triple Grape Ice), Ben & Jerry’s (Gimme Smore, Caramel Almond Brittle [nondairy], AmeriCone Dream, Chocolate Shake It), Big Gay Ice Cream (Salty Pimp, Rocky Roadhouse, American Globs, Dorothy, Birfdae Cek, Lunchbox, Blueberry Gobbler), Breyers (Natural Vanilla, Oreo, Mint Chip, Delights Minis Chocolate, Delights Minis Vanilla Cupcake), Häagen-Dazs (Trio Lemon & Raspberry with White Chocolate & Raspberry Sauce, Trio Vanilla & Caramel with White Chocolate & Caramel Sauce, Trio Coconut & Chocolate with Belgian Chocolate & Caramel Sauce, Non-Dairy Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, Honey Salted Caramel Almond), My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream (Ripe Strawberry, Green Tea, Sweet Mango, Cookies & Cream), Talenti (Pumpkin Pie, Double Dark Chocolate, Coffee Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Peach Biscuit, Vanilla Chai), Vice Cream (Minted — Mint Chocolate Chip with Cookie Crumbles, Choc of Shame — Chocolate with Brownie and Chocolate Chunks, Afternoon Delight — Vanilla with Cookie Dough & Caramel Truffles, L’Orange a Trois — Vanilla with Orange Swirl & three types of Chocolate, Bourbon Mash — Vanilla with Bourbon-flavored Caramel), Wafels & Dinges (Spekuloos Cookie, Crispy Dark Chocolate), Adirondack Creamery (Syrian Date and Walnut, Vanilla, Earl’s Chocolate Peanut Butter, High Peak Perk), Van Leeuwen Ice Cream (Vanilla, Honey Comb, Vegan Salted Caramel, Mint Chip, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough), Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory (Vanilla, Pistachio, Cherry Vanilla Chocolate Chunk, Chocolate Chocolate Chunk, Caramel Swirl), and Sambazon (Acai Sorbet) with additional treats from Breads Bakery and Loacker. Proceeds will benefit the Jimmy Fund, which was launched in 1948 and “solely supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.” Although the forecast is calling for rain, the event will go on despite the weather. And in the case of a dangerous storm that forces cancellation, there will be no refunds, “since the Scooper Bowl critical mission persists rain or shine.”
