Amy's Ice Cream-Sweet Temptation: Taste an Austin, Texas Original

Amy's Ice Cream-Sweet Temptation: Taste an Austin, Texas Original

Temptation of EveI love ice cream; in fact I would say it is my favorite food in the world. If ice cream had been available in the Old Testament it would have easily replaced the apple as Eve's temptation. History reveals many stories and myths surrounding the tasty treat dating back to Roman times. My favorite tale revolves around a King who wanted a dessert that had both the elements of summer and winter in the same dish. And some intrepid soul invented the hot fudge sundae. (My current personal favorite!) 

Austin, Texas is home to the most original ice cream store on the planet. Amy's Ice Creams was founded by Amy Simons in 1980. She previously worked at another shop called Steve's. Amy's Ice CreamsSteve's establishment was popular for what, at that time, was the completely bizarre & unconventional practice of taking homemade ice cream and smashing different ingredients (cookies, candy, nuts, fruit, etc.) together and serving it in a cone or cup. Seems strange these days when you can buy pints of just about any flavor mixed with just about any ingredient at your local supermarket! Steve's closed and Amy went on to open her own shop and she now has 12 locations in Austin as well as stores in Houston and San Antonio. But don't look for mass growth. At Amy's its all about quality, service and community.

Amy's special secret is no secret at all. They use only the best quality ingredients and don't cut any corners in producing the highest quality ice cream available in the world. Flavors change on a rotating basis and there are also seasonal fruit, berry, and nut ice creams available. In additional to the standard sugar cones, Amy's also makes their own large waffle cones that are tasty by themselves as well as a vehicle for the most luxurious ice cream you will ever eat, taste, nibble, gorge, or devour. Lola

Amy's goes out of the way to employ interesting and compelling folks that know the true meaning of "Keep Austin Weird". The company mascot "Lola" an awesomely funny cow, is prevalent everywhere. Each store has its own whimsical personality and feeling. Children and adults alike are always delighted by the décor, the antics of the employees (there are often displays of ice cream juggling which, I know sounds strange but trust me on this one) and the overall ambience that goes along with the most flavorful, richest, tastiest, creamiest ice cream you will ever put in your mouth.Amy's Mira Vista

MelissaMy favorite location is, obviously, the one closest to my home. Amy's in the Mira Vista shopping center 2765  Bee Caves Road is managed by the wonderfully bright, energetic and cheerful Melissa Hanson. She is a true disciple of the Amy's mentality and a purveyor of all that is delicious in the world of ice cream. In the interest of full disclosure I have to tell you that our son, Morgan, was an employee at this location until he recently left for college. I don't mind admitting how proud his mom and I were that he managed to get hired because it is something of a challenge to get accepted. Amy's looks for employees who are a little different, somewhat interesting, and creative as well as hard working. Although maybe not as significant as being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys or  nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, we were thrilled to know someone on the inside of the Amy's empire. And I admit I may have used the connection to get a few extra sprinkles of "crushin's"!?!

Delicious!

Enough of this talk...  I cannot think of anything but ice cream now so, as soon as I post this I will be driving over to the Mira Vista store for my current favorite obsession. (My hands tremble in anticipation as I hasten to finish typing and I begin to expectantly look forward to the sinfully extravagent indulgence). Pictured at left and served up with good humor and a smile (by my favorite Pit Boss/Scoop at the Mira Vista location) the not so discrete object of my desire. A three scoops Sundae of Mexican vanilla, chocolate chip cookie dough and Belgium chocolate (with Oreos crushin's) covered partially with Amy's homemade hot fudge and a half scoop of their warm praline sauce.  This artery clogging concoction will be topped with freshly whipped cream, fresh sliced strawberries, and some mixed nuts. Eaten with a plastic spoon ONLY (to prevent freezing of the tastebuds and enhance the full flavor of the frozen dessert). Okay, I can hear all the health nuts and fussbudgets out there but before you start  preaching,  please remember, life is S H O R T, eat dessert first and... I know, I know.... I will have to run an extra 5 or 7...or, oh whatever, a bunch of extra  miles this week, but it will be worth it. Remember to indulge responsibly...

 

Do yourself a favor; if you are lucky enough to live in or travel to Austin, San Antonio or Houston Texas, visit Amy's and enjoy a world class treat that originated right here in Austin Texas!

Posted by Mattie Lewis (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

Russell,  It is 8:00 o'clock pm but I think that I will get in my ride and head for Austin,it's a 2hour drive I hope they are open when I get there.  Sounds so good.

Posted by Don Eichler (Eichler Properties) over 2 years ago

OH BOY! Amy's is the very best ice cream ever! I hope you send a link to this post to the good folks at Amy's. I love Mexican vanilla with fresh strawberries in a waffle cone!!

Posted by Margaret over 2 years ago

Sounds like my kind of place, I am  a recovered ice cream addict, thank God Tulsa lacks a store like amy's or I would be in big trouble

Posted by Paul LeMay (Caretaker Property Services) over 2 years ago

Mattie I just posted this and you were the first to respond! It was fun and of course I had to make many trips for "research" purposes!

Don You might be in time for the late night last serving or you could stay over and have some for breakfast!

Margaret Thanks again for checking my outside blog http://www.thegoodlifeinaustintexas.com/  I will probably get several comments from people talking about what flavor combinations they love best!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Hi Paul, maybe I can bring you some when we vist out son at Tulsa University! BTW he is doing very well there and loves the school and the city! Tulsa reminds me of Austin BEFORE we got so crowded!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Russell, your description is so mouth watering I am going there this week! I am a fan of all things Amy's and take our kids there at least once a month!

Posted by Dave over 2 years ago

Russell, it sounds like a wonderful ice cream store.  My first job was dipping ice cream at a Peter Pan ice cream store.  I think those stores are long gone now. 

Posted by Marchel Peterson Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) over 2 years ago

I don't even really like ice cream, but your post got me going. How is THAT for the power of suggestion? GBU!!!

Posted by Elizabeth Nieves - Bilingual Raleigh - Durham North Carolina Real Estate Team (The Elizabeth Nieves Realty Group) over 2 years ago

DaveI try to get to Amy's once a month (even in the winter) and I often take clients there when showing property to introduce them to an Austin, Texas original!

Marchel It is a wonderful place, next time you are in town, call me and I will treat you!

Elizabeth WoW!?!? I am speechless (which does not happen very often) but I do not think I have ever met someone who did not like ice cream...Maybe you already have such a sweet personality that any more would be too much! I am glad I met you here and thanks for dropping by!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Russell, I was waiting for this one! We are so fortunate to have an Amy's near our home! Thanks for another excellent post!

Posted by Anne Giles (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) over 2 years ago

Russell this is a HOOT!!! We all love Amy's and it's so cool that they are based here in Austin, I see who your favorite Scoop is too, have you sent the link to him yet???

Posted by Allysoun Musslewhite (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) over 2 years ago

Hey, I just had another thought! Don't you think it would be a good idea to serve some Any's at your next Broker open House? Then you could bring some of the left overs to the office!?!? No wait, on second thought, there probably won't be any leftovers...

Posted by Allysoun Musslewhite (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) over 2 years ago

Russell, I will definitely have to make a visit to Amy's soon. I haven't been there in years and there is no time like the present to live the good life! Thank you for another reminder of what makes Austin the coolest place in the Universe.

Posted by Anonymous over 2 years ago

Ah, Amy's Ice Cream!!  The best location, however, is at The Arboretum, the one closest to MY home, where you can go sit on the big marble cows while you eat it.  Only in Austin......

Posted by Shari Chambers (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

My mouth is watering at the thought of Amy's Ice Cream, perhaps I will have it for lunch :)  thanks Russell for once another great blog.  Have a super weekend.  Go horns.

Posted by Karen David-Mohr (Prominent Title, LLC) over 2 years ago

Anne I am just happy they have locations ALL over town! Thanks for commenting!

Allysoun I plan to send him the link this evening and you are also right that there would NOT be any leftovers! Yummy!

??? I appreciate your comment and yes it is another very cool part of living in Austin! Login next time or leave your name! Thanks!

Shari That is a very cool and fun location and I was told it is alo the busiest store in town so I guess Northwest Austin gets the prize for the most ice cream lovers!

Karen The Mira Vista store is just around the corner from your office and ice cream for lunch does sound like a great idea! Call me next week and I will meet you there!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Now this is something that i can sink my teeth into...no wait, I would get a brain freeze so I guess i will just enjoy the tasty treat from the plastic spoon. I had not heard that theory before but it make sense. My favorite location is the one by Waterloo Records on 6th Street, they have the wildest employees and the entertainment is almost as good as the ice cream!

Posted by Scott Harvey (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

Russell,

Let me know when you meet with Karen for lunch at the Mira Vista store, I am now craving Amy's coffee ice cream with chocolate sprinkles!  But wait...I may have to go as soon as they open tomorrow!

Posted by Susan Avant, Realtor (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

life is S H O R T, eat dessert first

Hey Russell,

I like how you think!  I also like cold pizza for breakfast (when my wife's not looking).  :)

Posted by Not Yet Licensed over 2 years ago

Okay, Amy's is great, but who can forget going to Mrs. Johnsons bakery at 11:00 pm for the fresh, hot doughnuts.........my mouth waters just thinking about those tasty little morsels!   By the way, congratulations, Russell, for being awarded the distinguished community service award from ABOR.......we are all very proud of you.

Posted by Francie Little (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) over 2 years ago

Scott  You are so right about the 6th Street store! Great ice cream and a funny bunch that is always ready to put on a show!

Susan I know what you mean, the power if suggestion and then I all I can think about is ICE CREAM!  

Not Yet Licensed Great minds DO think alike and I am with you on the pizza for breakfast deal!

Francie Hey wait a minute we are mixing our desserts here! Now check this out! Amy's is now making an ice cream with DO-NUTS!!!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

I tried to respond to this earlier...Anyway, I love Amy's and it is an Austin institution!

Posted by Jeannette Spinelli (Avenue One Properties) over 2 years ago

Hi Russell, me AGAIN! This is so good and the AR folks are always looking for great Localism posts, maybe they will feature this one! Almost everyone everywhere has a sweet tooth!

Posted by Allysoun Musslewhite (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) over 2 years ago

Russell - you are a wicked man!!!  My hands were trembling right along with yours and it only got worse when I realized it's a very long drive to Austin.  Actually I'm pretty grateful we don't have an Amy's, 'cause IceCream is also my favorite food....and I'm not a runner...so...I'll have to make do with the low-fat variety...sigh!  But just in case you think me a stick-in-the-mud, let me show you my Turtle Cheesecake:

Hey Russell,

I'm not familiar with the sport of ice cream juggling.  Will that be in the Winter Olympics?!

Posted by Not Yet Licensed over 2 years ago

Jeannette It is an Austin institution and there is just nothing like it anywhere!

Allysoun I appreciate the compliments and really do not understand the how or why of Features! i just try and put out something of quality that my clients and (hopefully) future clients will enjoy and find informative!

Gail That CHEESECAKE!!!!! Wow! And you call me wicked,I am indeed a dessert fan and that looks awesome! Who knows, I may get to your neck of the woods one of these days and if so I will bring gifts (treats) I usually make salsa for Christmas and just finished a batch of peach preserves and jellies too...

Not Yet Licensed It should be, what happens is after the ice cream is crushed together with the different ingredients, the scoops often toss it in the air and hopefully it lands in the cone, this is also taken to a crazier level as it is often tossed at another scoop holding a cone across the store. my son and I ran in a race last summer where they tossed scoops of ice cream at passing runners holding up cups!!!

Ice cream! We all scream for Ice Cream especially from Amy's! I plan to go there this weekend and indulging in some of the coffee ice cream...

Posted by Lynne over 2 years ago

Gail I am working on a post, maybe 2 posts about Texas Hill Country peaches and a couple of trips I made to pick some an also placing in a peach preserves contest and making some jams and jellies with a very good friend. I guess I shouldspend more time on real estate but I just enjoy a lot of outside interests! Blogging has become a fun way to write about all the things I enjow about Austin and Central Texas!

Lynne Hello again, thanks for dropping by and checking out my blog. Amy's is one of the many very cool parts of living in Austin...and tasty too!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Russell,

Now here's a post I can sink my teeth into.  OOWW!  Brain freeze!

Mike in Tucson

Posted by Mike Jones (SUNSTREET MORTGAGE, LLC) over 2 years ago

God I love Austin.  I do miss the weekend trips from Fort Worth I'd make on occasion when I was attending TCU.  Honestly, the list of places in Texas where I could ever see myself living begins and ends with Austin.  Destinations such as the one so magically described here typify everything that is right about your community.  Bravo on this spotlight, Russell.  I'm a sucker for a hot fudge sundae myself. 

Posted by Paul Slaybaugh, Scottsdale AZ Real Estate (Realty Executives) over 2 years ago

I have a great idea! Why don't we go over to the Mira Vista location after church today and have our "Sunday Dinner" at Amy's!!!

Posted by Mattie Lewis (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

Mike Just thinking about that made my teeth and head hurt! Like I always say "indulge responsibly"

Paul I did not know you attended TCU, that's cool and you are right about Austin, I grew up in West Texas and could not wait to get here! Austin is a place where people from all over Texas (and the country) flock for the beautiful country and the never ending supply of interesting people and things to do! Let me know if you ever head ths way and i will treat you to some Amy's!

Mattie No problem...I think that can be arranged!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Rick  That is so doggone FUNNY. It should be a fashion tool at my house for sure...I cannot stop laughing and like the idea of letting out the belt!

I LOVE AMY'S ICE CREAM!!!  I didn't know the history behind the Amy so that came of interest. My favorite -- Banana split with Mexican Van. hot fudge, strawberries & nuts -- Now i'm craving ice cream.  I'm personally a fan of Westgate & SouthPark Meadowns location -- closer to home:) 

GREAT BLOG -- MA

Posted by Mandy Andrews (Texas American Title Company) over 2 years ago

Russell, since you posted this article at least half of our office has gained weight. The power of suggestion has driven all of us to our favorite local Amy's locations!

Posted by Scott Harvey (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

Russell, thanks for reminding me about the simple pleasure of Amy's Ice Cream.  It's been a while since I've indulged in  the full fat of their Belgian chocolate and Mexican vanilla.  I remember when the first location opened on Guadalupe at 34th St.(this was when I could eat all the ice cream I wanted without worrying about the repercussions!)  Speaking of indulgences, have you tried a burger at Phil's Ice House on Burnet Rd?  YUMMY!

Posted by Susanne Lee (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

Scott You can add me to the list...my running has NOT kept up with my consumption recently!!

Susanna I also remember when the first store opened, i was living in the Rosedal section of town and it was WAY TO CLOSE to my home! i have not tried Phil's yet but if the burgers are as good as the ice cream, they have a new customer!
