2011 BEST Ice Cream, Exotic

Christina’s

No child’s play, this. Christina’s ice cream is an acquired and—unless your offspring have preternatural palates—grownup taste. By that we mean green tea. Adzuki bean. Carrot cake. Fresh rose. Herbal chai. Even the standbys generally get an epicurean twist: The vanilla is malted, and the coffee is cappuccino. All of it is homemade, and flavors change with the seasons and the whims of its creators. When’s the last time you saw something sweet taken so seriously?
