We dropped by the new Sweet Rose Creamery in the Brentwood Country Mart last night and were thoroughly impressed. We got a scoop of the banana ice cream and the salted caramel ice cream. The banana flavor was just like homemade banana bread. The salted caramel was almost a frozen custard consistency. While the ice cream itself had the right amount of salt to add some depth, the shop actually topped the scoop with a bit of high quality salt for some extra punch and texture.
We desperately wanted to try the soon-to-be infamous Valrhona Fudge Pop, but they were already sold out. Next time.
The shop has about 10-12 daily homemade flavors, ice cream sandwiches and pies, and shakes/floats/malts. The store is reminiscent of those old school soda shops and plays the 1950’s music to go with it.
Because it’s summer time, and you need your ice cream fix…
