Just Ordered My Valentine’s Present…Some of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Ever since Hot and Cold (http://bongojava.com/hot_and_cold.php) opened, I have almost daily cravings to visit…it is all of my favorite things: paletas from Irma Paz-Bernstein, caffeine from her husband Bongo Java owner Bob Bernstein, Olive & Sinclair chocolate, and my new favorite ice cream: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams from Columbus, Ohio-it’s amazing!!
Favorites so far include (pretty much all I’ve tasted so far make this list!): Queen City Cayenne, Bourbon Buttered Pecan, Wildberry Lavender, Cherry Lambic Sorbet, Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet, Blackstrap Praline, Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate, Corn Syrup Custard with Whiskey & Pecans & Influenza Sorbet (Cayenne, Maker’s Mark, Buckeye State Honey, and “the cold- and flu- fighting juices of oranges & lemons will cure whatever ails you”).
I did the pick 4 (4 pints $48) tonight particularly intrigued with one of the new “Bakeshop” flavors-Violets & Meringue-Violets and rare French Muscat grapes and airy and crisp meringue stars – sweet as old-time candy with aromas of mandarins, apricots and lilacs.
Other 3 were: Roxbury Road, Corn Syrup Custard with Whiskey & Pecans, Honey Butter Cake, & Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate…should be here Friday!
