I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! As a child I would often visit Seattle, Washington where my dad grew up. My grandparents would take us for ice cream at Husky Deli as a treat. Husky’s is located in Alki, where my grandparents lived.
My grandfather’s favorite flavor was vanilla and my grandmother’s was coffee. I was born six weeks early on my grandfather’s birthday, so we always had a special connection. So I of course, wanted to be just like him and always ordered a scoop of vanilla in a sugar cone and he would beam with pride. We would walk hand in hand out of the deli and eat our creamy, sweet treat.
As I have gotten older, I have changed my order from just vanilla, but there is always a time or two that I order it in honor of my grandfather and to remember that sweet time. I love the Nutella, Lemon Custard, and the Blackberry Cheesecake, but there are a wide selection of flavors and I have never been unsatisfied.
Husky Deli was established in 1932 and is family-owned. Their ice cream is homemade and they will let you sample as many flavors as you like. They make shakes, serve the scoops in a cone or cup, hand pack pints in flavors of your choice, and have half gallons at the ready for quick pick up on the way to a birthday party or family dinner.
