People sometimes complain to us that they’re too scared to come downtown, but the only thing that worries us is the temptation to get a scoop of Hub ice cream every time we’re on Congress Street. The lineup of house-made flavors changes on a regular basis, and there’s a lot to love beyond the standard chocolate and vanilla: Asphalt was a rocky-road spinoff dedicated to the ongoing street construction downtown; Honey Cornbread tastes just like soul food; and Grandpa’s Breakfast features waffles, maple syrup, bacon and scotch. Now if there was just some magic way to make all the calories vanish!
Our ice cream has been voted Best Ice Cream three years in a row by the Tucson Weekly. Here’s what some other folks have to say about it:
Bourbon Almond Brittle is a party in my mouth. It was recommended to me by one of the girls scooping up the yumminess and I did not hesitate. The flavors are each distinct and “melt” together to create an addicting, tantalizing, and scrumptious frozen dessert that whispers my name on a Saturday afternoon and won’t stop until I make the 35-minute drive to scoop the creamy and sweet dessert in my mouth.
Oatmeal cookie dough by far. It reminds me of my grandma who is now gone. Takes me back to sitting on her porch after working in her garden all day. I absolutely love that it provides that nostalgia for me.
I’m a huge fan of Mexican Wedding Cookie! It takes me back to our Christmas tradition of making these cookies with my sister. I get it every time I go downtown.
