Toscanini's B3 ice cream

I recently discovered my new favorite ice cream flavor at Toscanini's: Brown Sugar, Brown Butter, Brownie (or maybe it's Brown Butter, Brown Sugar, Brownie), also known as B3. What an amazing collection of flavors and textures in Toscanini's perfectly creamy base! Incredibly rich, though-- a little goes a long way. Or should....

The woman packing it for me said her favorite is Burnt Caramel, and she always thinks B3 needs a bit of salt. Hmmm, I thought. So when I went home a sprinkled a few grains of fleur de sel on my portion. Heaven improved.

They sometimes have this flavor at City Feed in JP, too.

  1. Yeah this is definitely one of their best flavors ever.

    1. I've never had this flavor in particular, but I do find it a general rule that a few grains of a nice sea salt can really improve most (already very good) ice cream flavors.

      1. Not likely to have this and Ranc's, I suppose. Sounds delicious.

        1. Agreed, I love this ice cream! My favorite though, is butter chip. Much more simple, but the flavors are wonderful!

            Kevin, the ice cream maker at Toscaninis, is doing some great things. I love the B3 but always feel like I need a nap afterwards.

              Butter chip is another winner, I agree! I haven't had that one in a long time.

            2. My favorite flavor there is the Butter Chip, however they do not have it very often so I usually opt for the B3.
