Flippin' Our Shades at Jeff Ziga from Little Baby's Ice Cream

Here's our favorite ice cream connoisseur
eating street gelato at Parc Güell in Barcelona.
Jeff Ziga is a mega-babe and co-founder of Philly's newest sensation, Little Baby's Ice Cream. He and his buddies, Martin Brown and Pete Angevine, can be found at only the hippest and hottest locales around Philly--literally the hottest; it's like 90-something degrees right now--slinging their handmade ice cream from their custom-made multimedia tricycle. Yes, a tricked-out trike!

They craft small batches of crazy flavors like Earl Grey Siracha, Balsamic Banana, and Cardamom Caramel. It's like some sorta Willy Wonka shit but with good-looking dudes instead of Oompa Loompas. Be sure to track down the Little Baby's on Facebook and on Twitter to find out where you can get a taste. Now, let's see what this guy has to say:
SK: So Jeff, what is the most romantic flavor of ice cream and why?
Jeff: The most romantic flavor of ice cream is called 'Sambayon' by a shop called Vioko on the seaside in Barcelona. I am not going to describe its flavor but, much like the substance described in the song, "Love Potion No. 9," once it hit my lips, I was possessed to start French kissing everything and everyone around me.

SK: What's your idea of a perfect Philly date?
Jeff: I'm unsure if this is supposed to be "my" perfect Philly date or the most perfect "Philly" date. The most perfect "Philly" date would be a couple each wrapping up a Jim's steak with a slice of Lorenzo's pizza and then eating it by the dirty river. "My" perfect Philly date already happened and it was riding a tandem bike down Broad Street after the Phillies won the World Series.

SK: What do most guys do wrong when they're out with a girl?
Jeff: I don't know; I only know weirdos. Maybe most guys are boring and that's what they do wrong? Maybe get too drunk on the date? Also, after reading Dan Savage's Savage Love column for the last decade, I don't know if my conception of right and wrong matches up with most people.

SK: What's the worst thing a girl can do on a date?
Jeff: Walk another boy to his car and kiss him goodnight.

SK: Tell us a secret!
Jeff: That last thing happened [to me].

SK: Seriously? Ouch. Where's the most romantic place in Philly?
Jeff: Ugh, I don't know. Backstage at the Academy of Music? The little gondola behind the Art Museum? This city is dirty and not that romantic. I just got back from Europe, FYI.

SK: What do you like most about Philly girls?
Jeff: The horrible accent.

SK: What would you put on a mix tape for a girl that you liked?
Jeff: Sex Pistols' "No Feelings," Blitz's "Vicious," and Motorhead's "Fast and Loose"

SK: Would you date someone who hated ice cream, if such a person existed?
Jeff: If I ever found it in myself to date again, I would be so overcome by the newly-formed emotional connection that I probably wouldn't care about much else.
There are so many inappropriate licking/melting/dripping ice cream comments I could insert right here but I won't. Just yum. Jeff also said that he likes drinking champagne outdoors, savoring single-malt scotch whisky, shooting guns and watching the Phillies, and finds smoking gross but yet sometimes a turn-on. All that combined with his Euro-traveling, french-kissing, tricycle-pedaling, Sex Pistols-listening, ice-cream making skills and there's not much more you could ask for. Screw the sprinkles and cherry on top, he doesn't even need it!
