If you love the creamy French-custard-based ice cream at Moorenko’s (we’re big fans), good news: You can now buy pints at Whole Foods and My Organic Markets. The local ice-cream maker, with shops in McLean and Silver Spring, is a favorite source for area restaurants, which commission custom flavors. There’s plenty of variety for us in the pints, which retail for around $5. Our favorites: Red Hot Chocolate (intense and spicy with cayenne and crushed chili peppers), White Chocolate Mint Chip (blitzed with bits of white chocolate), Cherries With the Works (with silky chunks of dark chocolate and pine nuts), and Rice Pudding (imagine a frozen version of the homey dessert). Moorenko’s isn’t about to do battle with Ben & Jerry’s or Häagen Dazs, but the quirky flavors and reliable creaminess ought to ensure a faithful local audience.
