NYC’s Best Ice Cream Shops for Kids

For Those with Allergies: A La Mode

We can’t get enough of A La Mode, a place that has changed the lives of many allergy-prone kids and adults alike.  All of the ice cream at this fun store/party space/ice cream shop is nut-free, sesame-free and egg-free.  And with flavors like Partly Cloudy (blue cotton candy with marshmallows) and Pink Sprinkle (pink vanilla with rainbow sprinkles) for the kids and Wired (coffee with chocolate chips) for adults, everyone at A La Mode has something to smile about.  More good news: the shop just launched its online business so now you can order the stuff from the comfort of your couch — pints, bars and cups can be delivered right to your door.  Yum.

Grocery Great: A La Mode Ice Cream

Grocery Great: A La Mode Ice Cream

A La Mode has made a sweet splash in New York City over the past few years, thanks to its nut-, sesame- and egg-free goods (gluten- and dairy-free items are available, too). Now, the ice cream shop’s delicious products can be ordered online and mailed to your front door.

We had the chance to taste some of A La Mode’s incredible products, which range from pints and kid-size cups to decadent bars. Here are a few of our favorites:
Speed Bump pops: This flavor reminded us of rocky road–without the “rocks,” or nuts. The deep chocolate ice cream is sprinkled with marshmallows and white and dark chocolate chips and then coated with a thick layer of crispy dark chocolate. The pop is decadent and creamy but served in a just-right portion so you’re not overindulging. (We also adored the no-frills but super-delish vanilla pops.)

Partly Cloudy cups: This blue cotton candy ice cream was a winner with the kiddos. Though we were hesitant to stick a spoon in this flavor (blue ice cream=super sweet), we were pleasantly surprised that the ice cream wasn’t overly saccharine. The cotton candy taste was definitely apparent and is complemented by a dose of mini marshmallows. The cups are the perfect kid-friendly serving too, each coming with a wooden spoon so there is no clean-up needed (except for those happy blue-stained grins).

Cooks pint: A pint of Cooks ice cream just begs for an at-home movie night. Cooks ice cream features classic vanilla with a rich fudge swirl and bits of vanilla and chocolate cookies that add a little crunch. Each bite is utter velvet–A La Mode ice creams are made with 16 percent butterfat, after all. Ice cream traditionalists are sure to love this option–no fancy flavors or colors. Just top-notch vanilla and chocolate flavors done really, really well.

All A La Mode flavors are available on cup, pint or pop options. Click here to shop A La Mode products and flavors.
