Some of the greatest artists in the world have been gifted with synesthesia. Duke Ellington, Billy Joel and Pharrell are just a few of the folks whose work is next level because when they hear music, they see corresponding colors. Without the aid of some sort of futuristic contact lenses, we can鈥檛 squint our way to Pharrell vision, but Jeni Britton of Jeni鈥檚 Ice Cream has created a way for us to taste color by the pint.


Jeni herself doesn鈥檛 have synesthesia, but she does have a knack for ice cream flavors that鈥檚 nothing short of pure聽brilliance. Her Colors Collection is her interpretation of tasting colors, but blue isn鈥檛 just blue 鈥 it鈥檚 Ultramarine Blue Buttermilk. For green, she went with Garance Vert Clair, which she describes as 鈥渕ossy, plush green. Lemongrass, coriander leaf, spirulina, grass-grazed milk and cream.鈥 Wait, are we talking about ice cream or springtime in a dainty garden?


The most intriguing flavor by far is her ode to black called Noir D鈥橧voire (ivory black). It鈥檚 described as 鈥淟icorice-infused cream and grass-grazed milk with sea salt and crunchy dark chocolate flecks.鈥 So basically, like no other ice cream you鈥檝e ever tasted before.


If you鈥檙e in the mood for something a little more springy, the Cadmium Yellow Buttermilk sounds divine: 鈥淐rushed whole lemons with bergamot, white grapefruit, biodynamic yogurt, grass-grazed milk, cream and buttermilk.鈥

Want to taste your favorite color? You can order a pint online for $12 or try it in one of the Jeni鈥檚 locations.
