L.A. Creamery Artisan Ice Cream's creative think tank is pleased to announce three new ice-cream flavors: Brown Butter Toffee Crunch, Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle and Peanut Butter Cup + Chocolate. “We spent eight months sourcing the finest all natural ingredients for our new flavors. The toffee for the Brown Butter Toffee Crunch is gluten free, all natural, and Kosher certified and sourced from Oregon. It’s made with Pure Cane Sugar and Northern California almonds. The chocolate in the Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle is from Reggio Emilia, Italy. We also hand chop delicious Organic Hazelnuts from Eugene, Oregon which can be tasted in every bite. The flavor is like your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread in ice cream form.” said Co- Founder Stephen Bikoff.

Just because it’s officially fall doesn’t mean you have to stop eating ice cream. Or in this case,Umami Burger’s new donut ice cream sandwiches, now available at all Southern California locations. The treat is all LA: the donuts are from Stan’s Donuts in Westwood, the ice cream is from L.A. Creamery, and together you’ll get flavor combos like peanut butter and jelly ice cream with a jelly donut, chocolate ganache ice cream with chocolate peanut butter donuts, or cinnamon toast ice cream with a cinnamon roll and chocolate chips. After all, if you’re going to spend $6 on decadence, you might as well make it a cinnamon roll ice cream sandwich.

Absinthe Root Beer Float at Umami Burger in Anaheim, Calif.
Absinthe and root beer pair surprisingly well together — the licorice-y, bitter taste of absinthe is offset by the soda’s subtle sweetness and mellow herbal flavors. At Umami Burger in Anaheim, the restaurant pairs Abita Root Beer with L.A. Creamery’s absinthe ice cream for a more mature take on the traditional float. This version is particularly well-suited for the alcohol or absinthe-adverse among us, as it has a low alcohol content of 2 percent.
For those of you who don’t have access to L.A. Creamery’s eccentric ice cream flavors, simply mix three parts root beer, one part absinthe and vanilla ice cream for a similar, though slightly more alcoholic version of Umami’s float.
