Ice Cream is having a moment! While cupcakeries are close at an astonishing clip, Los Angeles is discovering cool treats at an unprecedented rate. It’s about time – our weather calls out for icy goodness year round. Here are our favorite brand new places to get something spectacularly cold in these dog days of summer.  A couple are so new they’re still putting on the finishing touches to open ASAP, so get ready to be the first to try them.

Three Twins Ice Cream

Another ice cream import from CA, this one from San Francisco, Three Twins is the organic ice cream that serves up basic flavors kids love (Cookies and Cream, Madagascar Vanilla and Chocolate Peanut Butter) alongside grownup palate pleasers like Dad’s Cardamom, Mint Confetti and Lemon Cookie. Perhaps you discovered this shop on your latest trip to Napa and are thrilled to have a little of the wine valley in LA, or perhaps you’re discovering them for the first time. Either way, you’ll be happy they’ve landed on the Westside.

We all scream for: Strawberry Je Ne Sais Quoi and Chocolate Orange Confetti
