A very recent surprise discovery: the French bakery at the end of our street (La Boulangerie) is now selling pints of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Of course, I immediately went with the salty caramel.
It’s a funny thing – thanks to this blog, I know the exact date that I first tasted Jeni’s: June 10th of 2012, when Liz and I were checking out the first Vintage Bazaar event at the Aragon.
As I was standing in line, waiting to buy this ice cream… I was surprised how clearly I remembered it. Not often that you have an ice cream you remember, over a year later.
Now that I know this is available at the end of my block, it’s doubly bad – every time I walk by now, I have to resist the urge to buy ice cream and macarons.
