Humphry Slocombe’s Grand Opening & Free Scoop Day (July 26)
On a mission to make ice cream less vanilla, Humphry Slocombe the chef-driven ice creamery known for unexpected flavors announced the opening of its newest scoop shop in Redwood City, at 2077 Broadway, on July 26, 2022.
For its Grand Opening on July 26th, the ice creamery will give out free scoops of any available flavor, all day long to celebrate with its new neighbors. They ask guests for an optional donation of $1 when they grab their free scoop. Humphry Slocombe will donate all proceeds to Redwood City Together, a non-profit organization working to forge meaningful partnerships to support the success of all youth and families in Redwood City.
A San Francisco favorite, Humphry Slocombe offers a menu of unique and trailblazing ice cream flavors. Among the best-sellers is Secret Breakfast, made with bourbon and cornflakes. Once the cornflakes are baked into a crispy cookie, they are folded into a rich ice cream base infused with vanilla and bourbon. Food Network has named Secret Breakfast one of the Top 5 Ice Creams in America.
Other popular and intriguing flavors include: Elvis the Fat Years, Peanut Butter Curry, and Pepper & Mint Chip. Humphry Slocombe is also known for their collaborations with local brands. This June, they are featuring Rose All Day (with Domaine Carneros) and Blood Orange Olive Oil (with McEvoy Ranch) at their four scoop shops. Each flavor is invented by Humphry Slocombe’s classically trained chef and co-founder, Jake Godby, who has been called the Willy Wonka of ice cream. The flavors are hand-crafted in small batches.
While the company founders don’t think of their flavors as ‘unusual’ by their own standards, they let customers sample everything they have to offer in their frozen universe so they can decide for themselves!
About Humphry Slocombe
Rebellious and unapologetic, Humphry Slocombe’s ice cream has its own personality and flavors that appeal to adult tastes, but is loved by all. Co-founders Jake Godby and Sean Vahey opened their first shop in the Mission District in 2008, naming it after the two lead characters (Mr. Humphries and Mrs. Slocombe) from the 1970’s sitcom “Are You Being Served?”
