She’d seen the place on Unique Sweets, and I’m so glad she brought us here! The shop was small and out-of-the-way, but the concept is indeed unique and interesting: all the ice cream is organic, is paired with a cookie dough flavor, and comes in little containers. Who doesn’t love cookie dough in their ice cream, especially when the cookie dough is a new and interesting flavor?
je & jo also offers vegan and gluten-free options! There were so many flavors that I wanted to try, but I went with Earl Grey ice cream with Shortbread Cookie Dough, and it was perfectly refreshing for the hot afternoon. All of the flavors sounded amazing, (oh, and they change with the seasons… I’m looking forward to Pumpkin Ice Cream with Ginger Molasses Cookie Dough… YUM!) but here were a few standouts:
- Cardamom Ice Cream with Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough
- Pimm’s with Mint and Cucumber Ice Cream with Citrus Sugar Cookie Dough
- Nutella Ice Cream with Hazelnut Shortbread Cookie Dough
- Sweet Local Corn Ice Cream with Honey Cayenne Shortbread Cookie Dough
I will definitely be back, and Kiyo has made me promise to bring him along next time!
