I just discovered my local grocery store is now carrying Jeni’s Splendid, which is an amazing local ice cream shop. Though it is expensive, I have discovered I would prefer a few bites of a truly decadent ice cream than an entire bowl of something that’s just okay. My favorite Jeni’s flavors are Thai Peanut and Queen City Cayenne (Dark Chocolate with Cayenne pepper).
My all-time favorite flavor is Cinnamon, and pretty soon I’ll be able to do my stock up run. For some reason, I can only get it during the holiday season.
Has there been any ice cream flavors that have blown your mind and leaving you salivating for more?

I really love Ciao Bella’s Key Lime Graham gelato! I had it on our honeymoon in San Francisco and it was so memorable!
And coming from Oklahoma, my all time favorite is Braum’s mint chocolate chip. To me, no other version comes close. Same with their chocolate chip cookie dough, but I can at least sub Blue Bell for that.

I dunno if it’s gourmet, but Ben and Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns ice cream is amazing. Also up here in the Philly area we have Philadelphia Philly’s Graham Slam which is super.

@Swiss Miss to Bee: Philly’s Graham Slam is Turkey Hill right? I know they claim to sell all over the US but I have yet to find it outside of an area whose locals can tell you where Lancaster County is located. I really miss it- that and the Jigger Shop in Mt. Gretna (I don’t know what ice cream they use but it has to be local).

Cinnamon ice cream? How have I never heard of this? Sounds FANTASTIC. I will be keeping my eyes open for this one. Sounds amazing. I freakin love cinnamon.

@Swiss Miss to Bee: I love Graham Slam! Thats my go-to ice cream when I’m watching Phillies games at home and just want to bum around.
I’ve been eating a lot of gelato lately also. There’s this chain in Philly called Capogiro which I go to with my FI and friends for after-dinner desert. They have a couple of unusual flavors too

@soonerpsych: yummm Ciao Bella!
In college I loved this place in Princeton called Halo Pub. Their vanilla chocolate almond ice cream is so good, but my favorite flavor of all time is Teaberry (but it’s so hard to find!).
