2018 Golden Teddy Awards — Food + Dining

Cool Ice Cream Shop

Winner: Molly Moon’s

With tons of locations and cool seasonal flavors like Sasquatch (for the uninitiated, that’s chocolate with granola and caramel) and ginger beer (plus year-round favorites like Stumptown coffee and honey lavender), it’s no surprise that Molly Moon’s wins our ice cream category yet again. If its fabulous flavors aren’t enough of a treat, the ice creamery sources 90 percent of its ingredients from the Pacific Northwest! 


Full Tilt Ice Cream may be old school, with its pinball machines and other arcade games, but its ice cream is totally 21st century: gourmet flavors, vegan options and more.

Frankie & Jo’s on Capitol Hill and in Ballard take mindful eating to a whole new level with their vegan and gluten-free plant-based ice cream. Made with cashew milk instead of dairy, Frankie & Jo’s ice cream flavors are as unusual as their process. Think beet-strawberry sorbet and tahini chocolate.

There’s an ice cream renaissance in the South Sound area with Ice Cream Social in Tacoma (and other south-end locations) and Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream in Federal Way, both making the list of our readers’ favorites. Ice Cream Social uses only natural, mostly local ingredients and no corn sweeteners. Sub Zero uses liquid nitrogen to make its unique, super-cold ice cream.

Thanks to our 2018 Golden Teddy sponsors!
