Recent/Current Special Ice Cream Flavors?

At Toscis the flavors change daily or every few days; at JPLicks every month; at Mixx (fro yo) every week; most artisinal ' ice cream' places are like that. My current fav is the Peach X (non fat fro yo) July special at JPLicks . It is soft and so creamy and a bit tart. Refreshing and clean tasting and beautiful pure peach flavor. Hard to believe it's non fat because I sure don't feel like I'm sacrificing any flavor there. JPL's Peach ice cream and Extreme Chocolate are also wonderful this month. Any Tosci or other reports? My treasured Espresso Lemon was around last month but not lately.The fro yo frenzy was in full swing last summer; are people still loving it? We stopped at Mixx last wk and it was as busy as ever, even mid day. Their Taro and Green Tea were as superior as ever.
Christina's has kicked off the summer of Fresh Mint- I missed Honeysuckle earlier this year, but I have been grabbing this flavor as often as I can. It's delicious with hot fudge. I think they usually have it until August or September.
We hadn't been to Mixx in Allston for awhile, so we stopped in last wkend. They had some new flavors(incl. Pumpkin and Guava) and the Hazelnut was tremendous.
