Best Western PLUS Inn of Sedona
“Good Eats” at A Scoop Above
By: Jennifer Barraza
I scream, you scream, we all scream for GELATO!
In this edition of the Best Western Inn of Sedona “Good Eats” I would like to tell you about a family owned establishment that serves delicious homemade Italian ice cream in Cottonwood, Arizona called A Scoop Above!
I found this gem of a place on my recent visit to Cottonwood. It was hot and I was in the mood for a cool treat. I am pretty picky when it comes to my frozen delights, but a friend had told me about A Scoop Above and what better time to try it out!
Now I have had tried gelato before, or at least I thought I did, I was wrong! The gelato I had here was truly Italian ice cream like none other I had tasted before. There were 24 flavors of delicious gelato to choose from and it was a little hard to decide which to try first. I ended up picking scoop of the Mocha and a scoop of the Carmel Pecan topped with almonds and dark chocolate. Sound good doesn’t it? The Caramel Pecan was perfectly mixed with just the right amount of luscious caramel and pecans and as far as the Mocha, the best ever!
Okay, I have to admit, I couldn’t stop at just one treat, I also tried my all time favorite a good old fashioned Root Beer Float. Made with real vanilla ice cream and A&W Root Beer, Awesome! Gelato is healthier than ice cream so at least I don’t feel to guilty for having two treats!:)
With so many flavors to choose from I will definitely be visiting A Scoop Above more often, and if you find yourself visiting Cottonwood and you’re looking for a refreshing treat to help cool you off, A Scoop Above is the place to be!
A Scoop above is located at 109 South Main Street in Cottonwood, Arizona. They are closed on Sunday and Monday, open Tuesday – Friday 11:00 am – 9:00 pm and Saturday, 11:00 am – 10:00 pm. For more informationplease visit A Scoop Above.
