Jesus Juice, an homage to Michael Jackson’s alleged cocktail of choice, is a permanent fixture on the menu: It’s a reddish sorbet flavored with Coke and red wine. So is Secret Breakfast, featuring bourbon and corn flakes. On this visit, there’s also olive oil ice cream, malted dulce de leche, and cinnamon brittle. In the past, Godby has served pancetta-flavored scoops and different mushroom varieties. (Candy cap was a winner; porcini was deemed “too earthy” by Godby.)
@humphryslocombe has become a Twitter phenomenon, with nearly 300,000 followers. And there’s even somebody doing a parody Twitter feed—@JasperSlobrushe (440 followers)—who pranks the ice cream maker’s extreme flavor announcements with even more disgusting flavor announcements. Godby, a former pastry chef who worked at top SF restaurants Coi and Boulevard, is vague about how they got so many followers. “Some food bloggers wrote about us,” he says. Indeed!
