I’m being completely honest when I say I do not have a sweet tooth. No, really. Really. That’s not to say I pass up the occasional dessert, but rarely does my tooth have a hankering to be satiated with sweets. So why drive twenty-something miles out of my way to try Carmela Ice Cream at their newly opened creamery in Pasadena? Because when I found out one of their signature flavors is salted caramel, and coming from a girl who adds salt to her fruit, I knew this trip would be worth the drive. And so it was. A perfect combination of salty and sweet is what could make me a dessertest. What makes Carmela Ice Cream stand out is their use of all-natural and local ingredients, and now they have me wanting to make the drive to try their spiced strawberry and cucumber sorbet, and fill up on more salted caramel.
