I love Honeysuckle Gelato, and now the local ice creamery is going to be part of Ponce City Market, just down the street from me. I created my first Storify piece to chronicle my love affair (so far) with the rich, delicious dessert.

Storify is a fun tool to play with, a different way to tell a story. As for the success of Honeysuckle (and King of Pops and Jeni’s Ice Cream and lots of food trucks), it’s about more than frozen treats. It’s about local, small businesses finding success by offering excellence in product and service and a rich, emotional connection that resonates and drives loyalty. And by connecting with Ponce City Market,  one of the most exciting urban projects in the country, Honeysuckle has become part of the bigger story about Atlanta’s ongoing efforts to make intown living attractive, fun and smart. And crazy delicious.

My Sweetest Addiction

Jeni's ice cream, Atlanta, West Midtown, Star Provisions, caramel ice creamUPDATE, Jan. 22: Well, this is great news — but not for my diet. Jeni’s is opening a second Atlanta location, this one very close to home, at the Krog Street Market, one of the really cool intown development projects coming through.

ORIGINAL POST: Jeni’s, a growing chain of ice cream shops based in Ohio, recently brought its magic to Atlanta, and I couldn’t be happier. I won’t say it’s the best ice cream or anything like that, because ranking ice cream necessarily means criticizing ice cream, and that is something I cannot do. Just go eat there and thank me later.

Jeni’s Westside Provisions, 1198 Howell Mill Road, West Midtown. 11-11, seven days, (404) 355-6050.
