Who Says McDonald's Isn't Hip Enough?

From a happy meal box shaped building, an actual plane you can dine in, or even a McDonald's that is literally in the middle of the dessert....these locations won't ever compare to your local McDs around the corner!

[Day 14] How To Churn Ice Cream With Your Bicycle: Peddler's Creamery #20DaysofICECREAM

Sometimes there aren't enough words to explain things. Seriously, I do not know how people lived before YouTube. So without further adieu, here is how Peddler's Creamery harnesses the power of a bicycle (with some type of sophisticated contraption system) and to produce ice cream...

So I didn't actually churn ice cream in the video, but if you do want to try it out Peddler's does allow customers to bike for their ice cream at certain times slots in the day. Apparently you need to pedal for about 20 minutes at 15 mph, resulting in one batch of ice cream. By the way, your help in churning ice cream for Peddler's profit will not go in vain. You will be rewarded, too. Depending on the how many batches you churn, you can receive free ice cream and prizes. For more details check out the Peddler's Club.

Now, the process for concocting this ice cream may seem extensive, but I can attest that Peddler's Creamery has one of the best ice creams during my #20DaysofICECREAM. They boast vegan and organic ingredients within their biodegradable cups.

Notable flavors include Pancake Batter, Mexican Chocolate, Honey Lavender, Snikerdoodle, Kumquat, Strawberry Basil

We ate KBBQ after this.

I apologize for the lack of flavor details in this post. This really is an ice cream shop I would go back to again, but I was just so amazed by the bicycling process that I ended up just enthralled at the simple yet ingenious idea of it all!

[Day 13] The Exotic Flavors of Mashti Malone #20DaysofICECREAM

No preservatives
No eggs
No refined sugar
No corn syrup
No trans fat
No artificial flavor
No artificial color...

...That's a lot of no's. 

Don't be fooled, though, because Mashti Malone ice cream is jam packed full of zest. Check out their selection of wildly aromatic based ice cream flavors:
Menu taken from Mashti Malone
Just to let you know, LA has some of the best ice cream shops, but the search for parking is an absolute nightmare and journey in itself. However, for being about a block away from the heart of Hollywood, Mashti Malone offers a free parking lot. Another plus in my book.
Rosewater Saffron w/Pistachios on a "Malone"
Herbal Snow & Mango
The rosewater saffron is probably Mashti's most popular flavor. Although the sound of saffron may scare you, it is actually pretty tame compared to the other stuff. My personal favorite was the herbal snow. Now that has a freaky frangrance flavor, but I just really liked it. There are a couple other off menu flavors as well such as the lavender which actually wasn't too strong in fragrance. Order your ice cream on top of a mashti or malone. A mashti is made out of waffle cone. The malone is some kind of super fried and glazed dough. Warning: The malone is intensely sweet. Think of an overly cooked doughnut/churro soaked in sweetness.

Mr. Mashti Malone (that's not actually the owner's name but humor me) walked my ice cream eating team out of the shop and even chatted with us about his ice cream ventures. Apparently a new Mashti Malone will soon be opening up in Glendale. You can also find Mashti Malone products sold in Whole Foods Markets.
