Velvety, rich milk chocolate ice cream spiked with cayenne and cinnamon. Queen City Cayenne is the very first ice cream Jeni ever made. In 1996, as a college student obsessed with scent, Jeni added cayenne essential oil to a store-bought chocolate ice cream. It was cold and sweet, then it burst into flames in her throat. Queen City Cayenne still has the same sweet-heat effect. You’ll first taste rich milk chocolate made with Fair Trade cocoa powder. Then comes the kick from cayenne pepper and Vietnamese cinnamon. The name is a tribute to Cincinnati (nicknamed the Queen City), famous for its sweet and spicy chili made with cayenne and a hint of chocolate and cinnamon.
