The pistachio is amazing, says Ogawak, “nearly like eating [them] out of the shell.” Novelli agrees. The wonderful vanilla bean is unique, Ogawak says, not like standard vanilla. Salt chocolate is rich and delicious, and the mango has very true fruit flavor. The macadamia is the best version J.L. has ever had. And Teaforest is offering Bulgarini’s famed goat milk with cocoa nibs.
A small at Teaforest is $7.50 (you get three flavors, though hounds have noted some variation in scoop size). At least, says Ogawak, the staff offers plenty of samples.
