|Hungry customers are eager to sample each of Sweet Science's 15 flavors.|
Verdant Tea isn't known as an ice cream shop, but they've been hawking Minneapolis's best ice cream, Sweet Science, for the better part of a year. Though customers can stop in any day of the week to pick up a pint of Ashlee Olds' delectable, creamy treats, Sweet Science holds a free tasting event once a month, where their entire lineup is available to sample.
Sweet Science rotates 15 to 20 flavors at a time, mixing a handful of mainstays with seasonal favorites. Their pairings are unexpected, and frequently combine sweet and savory components that result in a more refined treat than guilty indulgence. We headed to a tasting at Verdant Tea on a warm Thursday evening and found five flavors that stood head and shoulders above the rest (though you can't go wrong with even their most basic vanilla).
