At $5 a pop, no one wants a skimpy scoop. Luckily, the cones are piled-high at Primehouse. A margarita grande flavor tasted like all the best parts of the drink: bright, citrusy, and refreshing. Trust us, you'll need a spoon, even for the cones.

While the recipes belong to Primehouse's executive pastry chef Jove Hubbard, it's executive chef Rick Gresh who's often doling out the treats while Hubbard scoops.

Keep an eye on Twitter on Fridays, because Primehouse will tweet the day's two flavors, as well as any additional "mystery" flavors. At this year's inaugural pop-up, a Kentucky Derby-themed scoop was the surprise: a base of maple bourbon ice cream studded with chunks of derby pie.

This flavor was a clear favorite. Texturally, it was smooth and creamy, with rich mocha flavor and more than a hint of spice.

Unfortunately, during chilly days and inclement weather there's no indoor component to the pop-up ice cream shop. A counter on Ontario Street opens half its doors to serve up the ice cream, and patrons have to stand and eat on the street or hope to grab one of the handful of patio chairs that line the building's edge. Still, all the scoops nail it on creamy, soft texture, and we'll be back with the warmer weather to try the new flavors.
