I have to admit, I didn’t know that grape-nut was a popular Jamaican ice cream flavor until recently. Thanks, Bittersweet. The new coffee spot on DeKalb makes its own ice cream (bittersweet chocolate, caramel, vegan coconut, vanilla, raspberry, and Jamaican grape-nut), and when I saw this flavor, I assumed it was something more exotic than actual grape-nut cereal. The grape-nuts are crunchy and familiarly wheat-y, and the cream-base is sweet. Now it makes perfect sense.
