Y’all can keep all that pumpkin spice stuff.
Ellen’s Homemade Ice Cream on Capitol Street has paw paw ice cream, but it won’t last long.
The limited-time treat made its 2014 debut this morning. Owner Ellen Beal said she only has four tubs, so it will likely disappear pretty fast.
You might remember a mention of the ice cream from a story I wrote earlier this month about paw paws, those weird little tree fruits sometimes called “hillbilly bananas.”
I stopped by Ellen’s around lunchtime to try a scoop. It tastes a lot like vanilla ice cream but with hints of tropical flavor. Almost like mango, but more muted.
Even if you don’t like paw paws — like most of my Daily Mail colleagues — you’re sure to enjoy Ellen’s paw paw ice cream. Stop by and give it a taste before it’s too late.
