Review - Good Times Artisan Ice Cream




With clean white tiles and white t-shirts with rolled up sleeves, Good Times Artisan Ice Cream aims to tug directly on your nostalgia by summoning up images of ice-cream men leaning out of Mr. Whippy vans with your favourite childhood cone.  Except, at least in my memories, they didn’t quite have the tattooed guns this bloke is sporting, as he hands over Johns Sweet Candy ($10).



Johns Sweet Candy is constructed on a blueberry and maple soft serve that relies only on a fruit puree for its purple-blue tinge. Served in a cone or cup, it comes studded with hardened mini pancakes and bacon crumble that is glued to the soft serve with lashings of caramel maple sauce. It didn’t quite win me over, though it’s hard to tell whether it was the blueberry maple flavour wearing thin, or flashbacks to that article I read detailing all the chemicals that are put into soft serve to keep it soft.



Ziggy Stardust ($10) on the other hand, is my kind of man. Taking raspberry, coconut and rosewater sorbet as a starting point, it ups the ante with strawberry powder and a dusting of pop rocks that keeps things fizzing. Freeze dried blackberries add some more adult tartness, and the whole mess is topped off with a gold-dusted white chocolate star. Too much? Nah, Ziggy is a smile-maker.



Creator Nathan Sasi, who you last saw at Nomad, will be rotating flavours regularly, so keep your eyes on the Good Times Artisan Ice Cream Facebook page. And if getting back in touch with your inner child right in the middle of Potts Point is all too much, Sasi is also doing ice cream sandwiches. La Dulce Vita ($10) inserts salted caramel ice cream between two black and white swirled macarons, with a hidden pocket of caramel if you can eat your way through all that sweetness. Maybe it’s better shared? Sharing also knocks the price down to something more reasonable for an ice cream, too...
