Fans of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck and/or Big Gay Ice Cream’s East and West Village shops will no doubt be intrigued to learn that owners Doug Quint and Brian Petroff have scrapped the high-quality, off-the-shelf commercial bases used to make their ice cream in favor of a proprietary mix they’ve developed with “ice cream scientist” John LeSauvage and Ronnybrook Farm, which means Hudson Valley milk. Fork in the Road reports that the new, hyperlocal soft-serve will debut in this Friday at the shops in chocolate and vanilla, but also with coffee and cardamom flavors. [Fork in the Road/VV]
