Thrifty Ice Cream cemented itself as a staple in my life very early on and having had other ice creams now, I can now confidently confirm that Thrifty ranks above the others. For those of you who don’t know, Thrifty Ice Cream has become increasingly more rare and hard to find. But if you find yourself anywhere near one¾I really implore you to give it a try. If you know Thrifty or you decide to go, you’ll see that they have a special scooper that results in a cylindrical ice cream scoop.
“I remember always going to get Thrifty’s ice cream growing up and getting the cylindrical scoop,” USC senior Peter Lee said.
You can actually buy the scooper and gift it to that Thrifty Ice Cream lover in your life for their unique cylindrical scoops. Or if you just want an ice cream scooper that scoops in perfect cylinders every time, treat yourself and buy it.
Without spoons, ice cream eating loses its flair and pretty much becomes a lost art.

These spoons make for a heart-melting gift that will remind your special ice cream eater of you quite often. As every ice cream lover finds spoons absolutely essential, why not have a designated ice cream spoon engraved especially for them?
