Before Sticky Ricky’s opened, we were very excited about an ice cream shop opening 30 seconds down the road from our house. Today was their grand opening, but earlier this week we went twice during their soft opening. We were already blown away by their ice cream during the soft opening, but today the ice cream was even better. Sticky Ricky’s offers American ice cream (hard ice cream with no eggs and heavy cream) as well as some sherbet and sorbet flavors. Some of the flavors they are offering now (most flavors will change regularly) are Salted Caramel Cookie Party, Orange Creamsicle, Gochujang Chocolate, Avocado Lime Sherbet, Strawberry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate Sherbet, and Philly Vanilla.
The thing we like most about the ice cream at Sticky Ricky’s is the creaminess and the consistency. Our favorite flavors so far are the Salted Caramel Cookie Party and the Philly Vanilla, but the Gochujang Chocolate is not far behind. In the Salted Caramel, the caramel was slightly burnt (on purpose) and each bite was filled with soft, sweet chunks of three different types of cookie. The Philly Vanilla is one of the best vanilla ice creams I have ever had, and that’s saying a lot because vanilla is my favorite flavor of ice cream. The vanilla beans are steeped for a while and the flavor really shines through in the ice cream. As for the Gochujang Chocolate, it sounds strange, but the milk chocolate balances perfectly with the heat and saltiness from the gochujang paste. Overall, the ice cream at Sticky Ricky’s has been outstanding and I can’t wait to see what flavors they create next. They offer single cups or cones for 4,000 won, doubles for 6,000, and triples for 8,000.
Sticky Ricky’s is near Sookmyung Womens University, exit 2. Come out of exit 2 and walk down the alley going diagonally to the left. Walk down, cross a small intersection, and Sticky Ricky’s will come up on your right.
