@sozobe,
The only place more unusual to think ice cream making the top 5 than Columbus Ohio is England. Might have to take a bit of drive just to try Jeni's.

Ice cream?
In darkest winter?
Talk to me about stews, or soups ... or comfort foods, tsar. Any comfort food will do.
Any thoughts on mashed potatoes?



I am first and foremost a New Englander. Eating ice cream during the coldest time of winter is not a spectator sport! Like Olympic athletes during their off season, we eat ice cream during the bitter cold winter months to stay in ice cream eating shape so when the hot brutal months of summer come around we'll be ready to eat ice cream at the gold medal level!

@sozobe,
I made a colleague go to Jeni's on a recent trip to Columbus. I don't think he was ready for the flavour combos. I really want to try Jeni's inside out root beer float.

@ehBeth,
I'm hoping that Jenis opens up a brick and mortar store here in NYC. I'd love to try that inside out root beer. Right now, they only have one or two foodie trucks here and I think they were temporary/limited time only.

Great video of them making an inside out root beer float:

@ehBeth,
Do you know which ones he tried? I'm taking it that he didn't like them... aw.

It's brown butter almond brittle season. Just took some out of the freezer actually, reminded by this thread. (Jeni's is terribly unhealthy I'm sure but the nice thing about the flavors being so intense is that a little goes a long way. Not even half done with this pint between the three of us and we've had it for over a week.)

edit: I want to try that float too, will report back here if I do.

A few years ago, the holidays were approaching and I was talking with a friend in Columbus from Norway. She almost teared up with joy when she was telling me about krokan (caramelized sugar with butter and almonds), a prevalent Scandinavian dessert and dessert ingredient said to have been the favorite dessert of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory author Roald Dahl. People loved our krokan-inspired ice cream so much that Brown Butter Almond Brittle moved quickly from Seasonal to Signature Flavor status.

@sozobe,
I don't care much for ice cream - it's too sweet - all of it - sherbet, gelato, regular... but once in a blue moon i'll have a liquorice or tiger ice cream. Or a fudgicle. Or ice cream sandwich. And that's it Smile

Just discovered this thread. If I buy Ben and Jerry's, I will buy Super NY Fudge CHunk, CHerry Garcia or Karamel Sutra. If I make ice cream or sorbet or sherbet, it is usually seasonal. I will always make peach and blueberry during the summer. I will make cranberry for the holidays. Funny, I almost never make chocolate or coffee, the flavors I will have at an ice cream parlor

@sozobe,
as near as I can make out, G tried the lime cardomom frozen yogurt. I coulda told him he wasn't going to like that. I'd have liked it, but he's a food flavour traditionalist. I'd have told him to get the lemon/blueberry. Safer for him.

I'd like to try the White House Cherry

Cherry blossom-scented, grass-grazed cream, with buttery Belgian white chocolate flecks, sugar syrup-plumped cherries, and roasted whole pistachios. Lovely cherry aroma blooms on the palate.

Is that a weird German euphemism for that's not been ice cream not paid for? Wink

I went to Publix and bought some today. I’ll probably eat the whole thing waiting on the election results!

@ehBeth,
Yes, I'd like to also! I haven't yet.

Haven't tried the lime/cardamom either. I've tried just a bit of the lemon/ blueberry, it's certainly good but I understand what you mean about safe.

@tsarstepan,
I haven't had an worthy gelato here in Albuquerque (lame I tell you, lame on gelato), so I resorted to getting a freezer type ice cream machine via Amazon a few years ago. My ice cream varies, but my new favorite recipe is a chocolate sicilian gelato, that is, made with corn starch, not eggs.
