YoHoHo Nitro Ice Cream and Tasty Grub

You may know this about me already, but ice cream is my favorite! When I was pregnant with my middle daughter, I would eat a bowl of neapolitan every night!! Not just a scoop, I mean an entire bowl! When we heard about the opening of a nitrogen ice cream place in our hometown, you can imagine our excitement. The pirate themed YoHoHo is an experience you Matey’s won’t want to miss. 

As you step into YoHoHo Nitro Ice Cream & Tasty Grub, scalawags are greeted by local pirates waiting to serve you. With over 50 different gourmet flavors, additional mix-ins and toppings, it can be very overwhelming. Contrary to stereotype, the local pirates are very knowledgable and helpful. Once they guide you through your concoction creation, be ready to learn all about the unique process of your freshly made nitrogen ice cream.

How It’s Made

Known as the “purest” ice cream in Lake County, YoHoHo sources their dairy from a local farm. Aside from being locally source, it contains 16% butter cream, which is higher than any premium store bought ice creams. With zero high fructose corn syrup and zero preservatives, you are in for a yummy treat.

The other secret to their creamy ice cream is the rapid freezing process at -321 degrees Fahrenheit. For you science people out there, this means the fat and water particles remain very small to maintain the creamy consistency. No ice crystals, like you would get in cheap ice cream, or ice milk. 

On The Menu

You can find several signature creations on the menu, along with a flavor of the week. Be sure to follow them on Facebook for updates. I had the signature Key Lime Pie, and it was delicious and refreshing! Anna had “Fire in the Hole” which is  also known as s’mores.

Not to worry, if no menu item sparks joy, you can create your own. Jo created an Oreo and cookie dough, and also had hers in a cone. Her friend created a white chocolate with brownie mixed in. The possibilities are endless.

Tasty grub is also available if you are looking to grab a bite to eat. Here’s a little peek at the menu, but you can also find some gluten free and vegan options.

What You Should Know

YoHoHo is gets very busy, and there’s not a lot of indoor seating. Walking around Downtown Eustis is encouraged, since your ice cream is -321 degrees, it’s safe from melting too fast during the sweltering Florida heat. Stop in some local shops, walk over to the river front, or find a bench to sit and relax.

Be prepared this is NOT a scoop and go place. Keep in mind everything is made to order. It may take some time to get through the line, as you can see from our video, it can take about 5 minutes for each creation to be made. Allow yourself, and others, to be immersed in the pirate themed experience.

There are some dairy free options for those who need or prefer this for their ice cream. 

Do They Serve Dragon’s Breath?

Many people ask whether or not “Dragon’s Breath” is served. According to their Facebook page, “Dragon’s Breath” is STUPID DANGEROUS. “Liquid nitrogen must be fully evaporated from the meal or drink before serving,” said Peter Barham of the University of Bristol’s School of Physics. It can safely be used in food or drink preparation, but it should NEVER be ingested. So there you have it, the answer is no, they do not serve it.

    I’ve always wanted to go to an ice cream place like this. I think it’s great that you can create your own custom flavors. Since they also have dairy free options, which we would need, none of ours would feel left out. It sounds like a great place!

      It’s crazy how they pour the liquid nitrogen in there, and it just evaporates!

    We have a place nearby called iCream and they use the same concept. I like that there are no preservatives and you can basically make your own creation! And the process of how it’s done is pretty cool!
