Scoops is an ice cream shop in L.A. that makes new and strange flavors each week (with some continuing flavors: brown bread is a perennial favorite). I haven't been there yet, but L.A. metroblogging has a weekly feature listing some of that week's flavors. Last week focused on salt as a theme, offering: Salt and Squash; Sea Salt White Chocolate; Salt Caramel; Salt Avocado and Honey; Butter Squash and Kabocha; and Pumpkin. This week explores tea, with: Earl Gray and Lemongrass; Green Tea and Coconut; Jasmine Tea and Ginger; Chocolate and Lapsang Tea; Lung Ching Tea and Dates; and Chai tea and Egg Nog. I want to go there and eat everything.

I'm there the 21st through the 25th. Count me in for Scoops. In other weird sweet news, there's also Jin Patisserie, maker of such oddly flavored chocolates as Yuzu, Mango Basil, Black Roasted Sesame and Lychee. Yummers. I want one of these in my apartment.

I will eat all of you mofos' ice cream out of your cones before you even notice. That's how dedicated I am to this ice cream project.

I'll be in town from Nov. 21-Dec. 1 . Let's eat and play. Any Wiis in LA? I'm looking forward to Mario Galaxy.

Sadly (or not sadly, depending on how you look at it), my Wii is now here in Chicago. Maybe we can jump someone on the way to Scoops and buy another one.
