R.I.P. Scoops Ahoy. You definitely gave us our favorite Steve Harrington looks ever. And you created the Scoops Troop, a stellar combination of characters we loved to see interacting. In fact, the Scoops Troop could only have been enhanced by the presence of Eddie Munson, but what can you do? In any case, we were sad to see you go at the end of Stranger Things 3. But now, we, and many other Stranger Things fans, can bring Scoops Ahoy back to life and into our own lives. Walmart is officially selling Stranger Things Scoops Ahoy ice cream for us to enjoy in the comfort of our own homes, far away from the Upside Down. (We hope.)
Currently, Walmart has seven Scoops Ahoy flavors for you to choose from, and they are all vaguely Stranger Things themed.
Upside Down Releated Scoops Ahoy Stranger Things Ice Cream
Our favorite is definitely one called simply, The Void. That’s a Stranger Things ice cream name if we ever heard it. This particular flavor is “black vanilla ice cream, filled with strawberry ribbons and decadent vanilla cream cookie pieces.” That actually sounds delicious… And kind of gory, which we don’t mind. A little strawberry ribbon blood never hurt anyone.
The Scoops Ahoy ice cream flavors Mint Flare and Pineapple Upside Down are also inspired by Stranger Things‘ darkest realm. The former even sounds a little bit like Mind Flayer. Yum. Mint Flare is a “mint ice cream concoction, melded together with rainbow confetti particles and chocolate chunks.” Meanwhile, Pineapple Upside Down is a pineapple ice cream “with chunks of pound cake and salted caramel swirls.” Okay, that one is a need.
Ice Cream Odes to Dustin
Good ole Dusty Buns, a.k.a Dustin, has two Stranger Things Scoops Ahoy ice cream flavors devoted to him. And that’s how it should be. Chocolate Pudding and Cinnamon Bun Bytes celebrate Dustin’s favorite treat and his epic nickname. The former is a “chocolate pudding ice cream you’ve been searching for, featuring chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge swirls, and vanilla wafers.” While Cinnamon Bun Bytes is a “cinnamon ice cream, swirled with cinnamon cream cheese and cinnamon roll dough.” Honestly, these all sound amazing.
Other Stranger Things References in Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream
The final two Scoops Ahoy ice cream flavors reference Eleven and, well, Scoops Ahoy itself. Triple Decker Extravaganza is a treat shared by Hopper and Eleven, brought to life in ice cream form. And that means “vanilla and butter ice cream, swirled with maple ribbons, chocolate peanut butter candy.” Meanwhile, USS Butterscotch references a sundae actually served in Scoops Ahoy and beloved by Erica. And we know Erica has good taste. Netflix notes, “salty-sweet caramel ribbons and chocolate swirls await you aboard this frozen butterscotch dreamboat.”
