What I’m Wicked Into: Getting My Ice Cream Fix At Wanderlust Creamery

Hiiiiii!!

In case you didn’t know, my love for ice cream runs deep—like chocolate-sauce-caramel-swirl-dip deep.

And since my week of eating vegan is complete, I can finally get some of that good stuff again. 😉

My L.A. favorites include Salt & Straw and McConnell’s, but now I have a brand new one to add to the growing list.

About two weeks ago, I posted a pic on Instagram about a new ice cream spot I checked out with Sam called Wanderlust Creamery in Atwater Village.

I noticed the new storefront about a month or two ago while driving to yoga class, but had never stopped before. But, I could tell by its long lines and minimalistic look that it would be prettttttty tasty.

When I looked more into their story and origin, I felt an even deeper connection.

Wanderlust Creamery creates their wild, cool flavors based on past memories of childhood and travels, hence their store name. They’re big on unexpected flavor combinations and interesting textures. More on the company here.

One work night, I looked at Sam with my most serious eyes and was said, “We’re going.”

So, we grabbed our keys and hit the road for the short ten minute drive there.

After some taste testing, we both decided we loved their signature “ube” flavor, so that’s what we got a full scoop of.

The other flavors that caught my taste buds were: Smokey Road, Hawaiian Toast & Guava Jam, and Tonka Bean. I wanted to try just about every flavor, haha!

What is “ube” ice cream?

Well, this one had a malted crunch added to it, but the origin of “ube” comes from the store’s American-Filipino upbringing and mixes “malted milk, real sweet purple yam, and crunchy malted milk balls.”

It was so, so good.
