Foodie News x Restaurant Reviews x Hip-Hop Attitude

In 2010, I (Nick Love) spent over 45% of my annual income eating out at some of Atlanta's best (and worst) restaurants. So, who better to guide you through the city's crowded dining terrain?? Now, I, along with my team of Hip-Hop generation foodies, will expose and review ATL's newest hits, hidden gems, and old favorites. Hopefully, this blog will earn us a free meal or two while we point you guys in the direction of some good food and steer you away from the wackness. Let's eat!!!

Jackie's Ice Cream (As Seen @ The 2nd Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival)

Over this past weekend, I made my way over to Piedmont Park to check out the 2nd Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival. While I wasn't overly impressed with the Festival as a whole, one story and product really stood out to me - Jackie's Ice Cream

Created by the Hayes sisters - Jackie, Julie, and Jewelle, these Atlanta-based siblings are looking to make their mark in your local grocer's freezer aisle.  I first heard about them from the Festival's organizer.  When he told me about an African-American ice cream company, my interest was instantly piqued.  Some young black people making ice cream??  I ain't heard of that (Slim Thug voice).  So, when I saw the sign above, I decided to stand in line.  On a day where they offered about 9 total flavors, my taste buds led me to the Strawberry Short Cake.  With real pieces of cake, and a creamy base, it was definitely impressive.  I wanted to go back and try the Banana Pudding ice cream (one of their specialty flavors) but at $4 a cup, I decided to psyche myself into being satisfied.  Lol.

Over the next few weeks, I plan on trying to sit down with these ladies to get an in-depth interview about their endeavor and see if me and maybe a couple of my lucky readers can go by and sample ALL the flavors.  Who wants to join me??
