Salty Caramel Ice Cream

orientalfoxy Aug 29, 2007 09:26 AM

I'm desperately looking for salted caramel/salty caramel ice cream in NYC. I'm in Manhattan but am willing to travel. Does anyone know anywhere? Would be much appreciated.

    Shake Shack has had it on its custard rotation the past couple of months. Watch for the new schedule in Sept.

      They just had salted caramel at Shake Shack on Monday, FWIW.

        How is the salted caramel at Shake Shack? I never try any of the flavors.

          I've not tried it - but just sounded wonderful.

            Salted caramel is the flavor of the day on Mondays, and we had some today. In a word: Yum!!

            Here's the custard calendar for September: http://shakeshacknyc.com/05.07%20Cust...

        Jeni's Ice Cream in Columbus, OH has FABULOUS salty caramel ice cream. They have an affiliation with Dean & Deluca and they also ship. http://www.jenisicecream.com/ They have loads of other yummy flavors too. You did say you were willing to travel (LOL!)

          The Jeni's web site is actually www.jenisicecreams.com (plural) :) And Diane you will be pleased to know Jeni's is coming to your neighborhood in Spring 2008.

          I had it at Borough Food & Drink a month or so ago.

            Just had a delicious scoop of dulce de leche at Cones on Bleecker! It is salty in a good way.

              I know that stuff is big out in the Bay Area, with Bi Rite creamery, and the pizza place in Larkspur. Shack Shack is more of a soft serve so it's likely to be different, but hopefully good enough for a craving. There's also a gelato place uptown on the west side (the name escapes me) which are doing more novelty flavors.

                I recently had salty caramel gelato at Otto's at One 5th Ave off 8th Street in Manhattan. Their gelato is wonderful.
