If I had to pick one place that I miss from our trip to Atlanta that would be Jeni’s. We visited their shop in the Westside Provisions District twice. They had so many unique flavors and it was hard to choose. What I liked about their selection was they offered a lot of savory flavors. It wasn’t your typical sugary ice cream. I heard that they might be opening a location in the LA area, I hope that is true. Because no other place comes close to Jeni’s.
On our first visit I had the very tart and refreshing Black Currant Lambic Sorbet. I loved it and didn’t realize it had beer in it. The other amazing flavor I tried was the Yazoo Sue with Rosemary Bar Nuts. It had Cherry Wood-Smoked Porter Beer plus Almonds, Cashews, Peanuts, Pecans dusted with Rosemary, Brown Sugar and Cayenne. It was so good and savory. I was in love!! My husband tried the Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate and Wildberry Lavender flavor.
On our final stop I had the same thing as first time plus The Buckeye State. This delicious flavor had salted peanut butter and dark chocolate. How bad could it be?! I also sampled the very nutty Bangkok Peanut and it was great.
Now I have to wait and pray that they open a location in LA very soon. Do you hear that Jeni’s?
