We’ve seen plenty of celebrations to mark the return of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, from coffee shops across the country turning into Luke’s Diner for the morning, to Washington Depot, Connecticut (the town fictional Stars Hollow was based on), hosting a fan festival. But this one might literally be the sweetest: Brooklyn-based ice cream company Ample Hills is hosting a contest asking fans to help them create a Gilmore Girls-themed flavor.
Since Rory Gilmore declined the title of Stars Hollow’s Ice Cream Queen (in her defense, she just got back from backpacking around Europe and was leaving for Yale), the royal title is up for grabs. Ample Hills posted the contest on their Instagram account, asking fans to comment with suggested names and flavor combinations. According to the contest rules, the winner gets “a free pint, a cup of coffee, and an invitation to Friday night dinner.” If you want to participate, you have until October 31 to comment with your entry.
Might we suggest a “Coffee-coffee-coffee” flavor as a tribute to Lorelai and Rory’s caffeine addiction? Or maybe some kind of ridiculous twizzler-marshmallow combo in honor of their movie night feasts? Or perhaps a "Pop Tart Appetizer," with chunks of the breakfast pastry on the outside and an apple-flavored core? Or "Birthday Mallomars"? Whatever the winning flavor is, we’re sure it will be equally tasty for everything from Cop Rock marathons, wallowing over breakups, or just about any occasion where junk food is required (which might be all the time). Or you can savor it while you’re watching all the new episodes on Netflix November 25th.

If you’re out on the road, feeling lonely and want something cold, all you have to do is name this scoop, and you'll win this in one fell swoop...It’s time to summon The Town Troubadour and call Michel to make a reservation at The Dragonfly: The #GilmoreGirls are returning this Thanksgiving, and we are making a flavor to celebrate. Whether you are Team Jess or Team Dean, we are calling on you to create and name a flavor worthy of this Stars Hollow reunion. Put on your Sookie chef hat, fill up at Luke's Diner, stop by Doose’s Market, and tap into your inner Paris Geller to fire up that competitive spirit to produce pop culture references so rapid-fire it would make Lauren Graham blush.
