I recently had a scoop of Velvet ice cream at Hocutt's BBQ & Ice Cream in Moundsville, WV. I had a scoop of the peppermint stick (a seasonal flavor only available in December) and it was very good. Both of my friends had different flavors (Fresh Strawberry and Butter Pecan & Cashew) and really enjoyed them also.
I did a search here on Roadfood and it doesn't look like Velvet brand ice cream has been mentioned before. Anyone familiar with it? What do you think? According to the website, it is manufactured in Utica, OH, not too far from Columbus.
I usually head up to the Velvet place a couple of times a year. They have a small soup and sandwich place in their building, which is an old mill (with a working water wheel) and they serve ice cream, too. Additionally, they have an ice cream museum, and you can watch the making of ice cream from a special viewing area if you're there on a weekday. My favorite Velvet flavor is Brandied Peach. They haven't made it in several years, and I call a few times each year begging them to make it again. Each time, I get a laugh and a promise to consider it. My wife's favorite Velvet flavor was the pistachio.
