huge fan of the ice cream at Ample Hills (and so is Blondie). I like to keep tabs of their specials on Twitter and Facebook, which is where I learned they are now making soft serve and that their Cinnamon Toast soft serve was recently named by Time as "one of the funkiest flavors on earth." Naturally I had to make a little trip to check this new development out...
The soft serve is super rich and creamy and according to Time's report it's "authentic bread flavor comes from steeping toast slices in hot milk. The mushy bits are strained out before the butter and cinnamon are added." I don't know if "funky" really does the flavor justice. If you love French Toasty goodness, this should win your favor. It really does have nice bready overtones and it's heavy on the cinnamon. The companion flavor is a Bourbon, Straight Up which is made with Maker's Mark and vanilla bean. It's boozy and though I only got a small sample on the side, I can imagine it would be great swirled with the Cinnamon Toast. The soft serve flavors will rotate, so be sure to keep tabs on them via Facebook.
