Looking for a particular ice cream flavor

Maybe Scoops will, or can, make it.

But has anyone in LA had strawberry ice cream made with aged balsamic vinegar?

Three Twins (up in the Bay Area) makes this ice cream called "Strawberry Je Ne Sais Quoi" which is basically strawberry ice cream and balsamic vinegar. It is just out of this world fantastic.

Now that I think about it, balsamic strawberry ice cream is sort of popular up North (e.g. Bi-Rite or Humphrey)

How about down here in SoCal?

    I could be wrong, but I thought I saw this flavor at Melt Gelato in El Segundo. I think they currently have four strawberry-based flavors.

      Tifa Chocolate & Gelato in Agoura Hills has had it in the past. It was pretty amazing.

        Anybody know where they server Palmer House flavor ice cream, in LA? Palmer House is Venetian Vanilla with cherry and walnuts. Even plain vanilla or French Vanilla would work.

          I think Tai just made a batch of this last week at (original location) Scoops. (Or was it strawberry+goji berry?)

          Anyways, I didn't buy a pint, but I did taste it... Nice.

          I was far more interested in the maple+bacon & blueberry+basil...

            I had it once at Scoops two years ago, and it was pretty amazing.

              Thanks fdb and J.L.

              I think it's time to break out the chalk ... and head over to Scoops.

                Scoops definitely has it. Had it a month or so ago. So bomb
