The Want: A summer snack that isn’t a lame cupcake, a low-calorie frozen yogurt, or an expensive cookie from Starbucks (SBUX). It should impress your co-workers and pull in a few favors down the road.
The Get: Laloo’s black mission fig goat’s milk ice cream ($7.99 per pint; laloos.com). Packed with probiotics and low in lactose, goat’s milk is easy to digest and adored by foodies and chefs. “I love its funky barnyard-tangy flavor,” says Katy Peetz, pastry chef at gastronome haven Roberta’s Pizza in Brooklyn, N.Y. “It’s so much more interesting than cow’s milk.” And Laloo’s black mission fig flavor is much more interesting than the Newtons you grew up with.
