Sweet Rose Creamery is shown above with its vibrant logo on display. The parlor makes a vast array of delicious flavors. 

Los Angeles is no stranger to desserts. From mochi to cookies to cakes, LA has it all. What’s one particular dessert you can be sure to find at any corner? Ice cream. Ice cream parlors such as Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and Van Leeuwen are scattered throughout LA, serving delicious flavors from simple vanilla to cooling lemon sorbet.

A parlor that deserves special recognition lies only five minutes from Archer. Sweet Rose Creamery pasteurizes its own base instead of using a purchased, pre-made dairy base, and it only uses organic ingredients. Their flavors change monthly, contingent on the fruits of Santa Monica Farmers Market.

One of the first things I noticed when walking into the parking lot of the Brentwood Country Mart a few years ago was the black lettering that read Sweet Rose Creamery, bold against the shiny glass background.

As soon as I walked into the parlor, the cold air wafted the smells of sweet sugar and milk right to my nose. Although the shop is relatively small, I barely noticed because of the charming customer service. Clad in a navy blue shirt with the words “Sweet Rose Creamery” placed in the center, every employee had a smile on their face and a friendly demeanor.

I walked closer to the menu and saw unique flavors, including Murcott Mandarin and Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie. However, one flavor particularly stood out to me: Kenter Canyon Farms Mint Chip.

My entire life, I’ve resorted to the refreshing, taste of mint chip ice cream. From my experience, the color of mint chip ice cream typically ranges from a vibrant green to a pale blue. But when I peered inside the glass protecting the frozen tubs that hold the ice cream, I noticed the mint chip flavor was almost completely white. Intrigued, I ordered a small scoop of it.

After I paid for my ice cream, I left the parlor and entered its back patio. Surrounded by a white picket fence, there were a few small tables and benches to sit on. The patio was covered in warm rays of sunlight, which was the perfect setting to enjoy my cup of ice cream.

There is no exaggeration when I say my life changed. Sweet Rose’s mint chip flavor was unlike anything I’ve ever tasted. I didn’t taste any trace of artificial flavor. Instead, it felt like I was biting into a mint leaf freshly picked from a home-grown garden. The purity and sweetness of the soft ice cream, mixed with the crunch of chocolate chips, was like heaven exploded in my mouth. Now, I can’t eat any mint chip ice cream if it’s not the one from Sweet Rose Creamery — literally nothing can compare.

After my initial visit to Sweet Rose Creamery, it felt like I had to stop myself from going there every day. Every ice cream flavor (although I’m partial to the mint chip), is incredibly refreshing and not too sugary.

Sweet Rose Creamery is an incredible pick if you’re looking for a sweet treat, so make sure you give it a visit! The next time you go — trust me on this — you absolutely have to try the fresh mint chip. No matter what time of the year you visit Sweet Rose Creamery, there will be the perfect flavor for your cravings.
