Oh. My. God.
I am dying to try the artisan ice creams and sorbets at Sweet Republic, a new Scottsdale sweet shop that opened last week. (Thanks to the Chow Bella reader who emailed me with the great tip!)
Owners Jan Wichayanuparp and Helen Yung make their small-batch ice creams from scratch, using rBST-free milk. Salted butter caramel is just one of the scrumptious-sounding flavors I'm dying to try. They also make sorbets using fresh fruit; flavors include lime-basil, pear-ginger, and canteloupe.
Pinkberry-style tart frozen yogurt is another option at Sweet Republic, along with shakes, malts, and sundaes. There is a small selection of fresh baked goods available daily as well -- current offerings include banana bread and orange peel-walnut macaroons.
