When viewing colors… Do you ever wonder what they might taste like? If you’re Jeni Britton Bauer, of NYC’s Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, you not only have this thought process, but you go ahead and create a line of ice creams that taste like color.
After being inspired by the cut-outs of Henri Matisse, the vibrant colors of the paper led Jeni to create the Color Collection.
Although there aren’t many blue foodstuffs in the world, Jeni manages to capture the flavor of Ultramarine Blue with wild blueberries, raspberry extract, and pineapple. Cadmium Yellow incorporates crushed whole lemons, bergamot and white grapefruit.
The result… a line of tangible and very delicious colors, that are themselves a work of art. And, I’d like to color my belly with them. Available here.
