Judging by the long line and the smiling faces on the first tasters of N’iceCream’s creamy gelatos and sorbets at the OC Mart Mix on Friday, this Venice born ice cream shop will make Costa Mesa even sweeter. Co-founders Laura Nielsen and Christian Toxboe, by way of Denmark, set up their first organic gelato and sorbet store just four years ago in Venice and now boast 3 more LA locations.
They pride themselves on making small batches of gelato and sorbet daily, (nothing is ever more than 12 hours old) and use organic milk from Rockview Farms and less sugar than most, (sorbets are made with fresh, locally grown fruits as much as possible) so that the outcome is light, clean and addictive.
There’s no guessing to what flavors you’ll be choosing from on any given day, N’IceCream posts even the time flavors were made on their website and fans flock to the locations serving their favorite flavor. Go for Salted Caramel if it’s in, it’s our favorite and hands down a fan favorite across the board. What’s not to love? Sweet, salty, slightly bitter, light and cold. Other delicious flavors to choose from can include tangy lemon sorbet, coffee caramel, pistachio, chocolate hazelnut, vanilla bean and straciatella. Receive e-mail alerts for when your favorite flavor is ready at any N’IceCream location, it’s simple, just click on a flavor and you’ll can enter your e-mail address.
Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. OC Mart Mix is at 3313 Hyland Ave. in Costa Mesa.
