So the Mr. stopped by Snyder's (quirky local non-chain grocery) on the way home to lay in a supply of cottage cheese (he's picky—he only wants Axelrod's and Snyder's is the only place that has it). This is also where he gets me my vanilla Silk soymilk because Whole Paycheck has decided they only need to stock their own yucky chalky soymilk.

He usually gets his frozen treats there too: Haagen Dazs dark chocolate ice cream bars and perhaps a pint of local Moorenko's bittersweet chocolate ice cream. But this time he came home with a new Moorenko's flavor, so new that it's not on their website: Oh Snap!

It's very tasty: a strong baked-ginger flavor, strong enough to tingle a spot on my tongue where a pepper from some leftover palak paneer had already sensitized things.

Have you had an interesting ice cream flavor recently? Tell me all about it.

Not recently, but the last unusual ice cream flavor I had was cucumber ice cream from J.P. Lick's in Boston. It was surprisingly inoffensive, considering--very mildly sweet, and refreshing. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to seek it out, but it was worth trying for the experience. =)

That actually sounds delicious, and something I might turn my hand to making!

I like to make my own ice cream. Most recently I made honey vanilla lavender, which was pretty good.

Honey vanilla lavender sounds divine!

Joe talked me out of an ice cream maker acquisition on the grounds that we don't need to be any rounder than we are, sigh. :p

I actually use an ice-cream attachment to my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer, which works fairly well as long as the kitchen is not too hot.

My go-to flavor is chai - we call it chaiscream. The most unusual flavor I've made is probably grapefruit poppyseed, which was fairly intensive work and so I'm not likely to make it again but it was good.

aleatory beverages!

Chaiscream sounds so good, I won't lie. I discovered chai when I went to college and fell in love. *g* I used to have a set of chai dice [Leafcutter Designs] and the "chai" made from some of the recipes I rolled up, while not strictly authentic, were delicious. I should obtain another set sometime. So good. :)

I got two scoops of Peach Melba (along with one of strawberry sorbet) at the Bruester's out past Lake Forest the week before last, which was a pretty good decision. Otherwise, I don't think I've had anything of particular note since...May? When I got Thai iced tea + coconut from Baby's in West Philly. This makes me a bit sad, tbh, but exotic ice cream just hasn't been an indulgence I've had the money for recently.

The ice cream shop in Union Square, Gracie's, recently started making pandan ice cream. It is the best.

They had lovely flavors, like passion fruit.

Nice! Huh. Could this have been the place near my godchild's family that did jackfruit ice cream, which was the best? It may or may not still exist. The family in question used to live (but have since moved) in Silver Spring.

So it's like a gingersnap ice cream? That sounds delicious! I love gingersnaps.

I haven't tried any new ice creams recently. Bummer! Though I'm still really fond of raspberry ripple frozen yogurt from Sobeys; which seems strange, because it's just a store-brand, "low fat" dessert that I once bought on a lark because it was on sale...but damn, I like it a lot. (Then again, I'm a slut for raspberry.)

I had Tabasco ice cream on Avery Island. It had an afterburn.

I think it was raspberry. I mostly remember the burn.
