Luke From ‘Gilmore Girls’ Is Making A Line Of Coffee!
By Cooking Panda
“Gilmore Girls” fans, it seems that your TV-show dreams are finally coming true.
Although the popular heartwarming series aired its final episode over 10 years ago — in May 2007, to be exact — the “Gilmore Girls” stars are alive and well.
One of them, in fact, is doing so well that he’s bringing a bit of his TV character to his real life. I’m talking about Scott Patterson, who plays Luke, the owner of Luke’s diner and Lorelai’s flannel-wearing love interest.
Yep, the backwards-cap-sporting guy your mom always had a crush on and the reason why she watched the re-runs with you.
Patterson will be making coffee once again, but this time, he won’t be serving it at a diner in Stars Hollow, the fictional town in the show.
In an interview with Wealth Management, Patterson revealed that he will be developing his own coffee brand, which is almost ready to launch.
“Quality coffee is something that I am obsessed with,” Patterson told Wealth Management. “It’s the thing I look forward to every morning and throughout the day and throughout the evening and now throughout the middle of the night.”
Indeed, a good cup of quality coffee can be almost as comforting as a good friend.
Not sure what that “middle of the night” part means, but I think most people can relate to looking forward to a nice cup of coffee in the morning. Especially when quality beans are involved.
Patterson isn’t really spilling the beans on the details of his new brand, but he has told us the name of it.
Sorry to disappoint, but it’s not going to be Luke’s Coffee (though there have been Luke’s Diner pop-ups in L.A!).
No, Patterson seems to be doing his own thing, and the name he came up with is pretty creative.
Patterson’s brand will be called Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee.
Because, who wouldn’t want a big mug of Scotty P’s coffee, right?
In other “Gilmore Girls”-related news, there is still a lot of speculation about whether Netflix will renew the second revival season of the show.
A cup of Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee and new episodes of “Gilmore Girls”? Sounds like a deal.
The New ‘Gilmore Girls’ Ice Cream Flavor Is Here!
By Cooking Panda
Here’s some sweet news to hopefully help ease those Election Day nerves!
A few weeks ago, we told you about how the Brooklyn-based Ample Hills Creamery decided to hold a “Gilmore Girls”-themed ice cream flavor contest, in which fans were invited to submit flavor names and recipes for a new ice cream.
Now the results are in, and after the creamery sifted through more than 2,500 entries, it chose a winner. The new flavor is called (drumroll please)…
“They Scoop Gilmores, Don’t They?”
“Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already — topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles,” is how Ample Hills describes the new flavor on its blog.
“There were so many excellent options, puns and flavor combinations that we couldn’t choose just one. The winning flavor, They Scoop Gilmores, Don’t They? is an amalgamation of three amazing suggestions: @pauline_beal’s allusion to Emily’s attempt at chocolate pudding, @ryebecca’s ingenious “oy with the snickerdoodles already” and @jjjmmd’s name — a reference to a reference to a reference.”
Beginning this week, you can pick up the flavor at all of the Ample Hills NYC scoop shops, and if you live outside of New York, it is available for nationwide shipping as well.
“You can order individual pints in a Choose Your Own Story 5-Pack or opt for a Gilmore Girls-themed 4-Pack Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow (name suggested by Rebecca Phillips) that includes two pints of the winning coffee chocolate pudding flavor, 1 pint of marshmallowy goodness in the form of Snap, Mallow, Pop! ice cream and 1 pint of No Sleep Till Pumpkin ice cream — coffee base with pumpkin ooey gooey butter cake pieces,” the company promises.
And guess what? Ample Hills also promises a few more “Gilmore Girls” surprises coming our way in the next few weeks. In the meantime, eat up and stay tuned!ample hills, creamery, gilmore girls, ice cream contest, They Scoop Gilmores Don’t They?
