— What’s creamy and frothy but also hoppy and malty at the same time?
After a year and a half in the making, Rhinegeist has unveiled a beer-flavored ice cream collaboration with United Dairy Farmers.
The ice cream is called Tropical Truth and it’s formulated using one of Rhinegeist’s first (and one of our favorite) beers, the Truth IPA.
After a year and a half of ideation and testing, we are oh-so-stoked to introduce Tropical Truth, a beer-flavored ice cream collab with United Dairy Farmers @udfofficial made using our Truth IPA! Yes, you read that right.⠀ Tropical Truth is inspiringly delicious, balancing a sweet and malty base with a wave of citrusy, tropical flavor. We're debuting this creamy delight on June 1st from 5-8pm at an Ice Cream Social in our taproom, with FREE scoops of Tropical Truth (while supplies last) + beer floats.⠀ For more info, check out our FB Event: (link in bio)⠀ #beericecream #cincymade #hopsundae #thisisrhinegeist
Rhinegeist describes the ice cream as having a “sweet and malty base with a ‘tropical tsunami of flavor, highlighted by notes of citrus, grapefruit and mango.’”
>> Graeter’s Ice Cream releases new, seasonal flavors
This special ice cream flavor will be available in cups and cones at United Dairy Farmers locations starting May 29.

— To us in Dayton, king cake may seem like a bit of a novelty. However, those from or living in the Gulf Coast area take it very seriously.
Commonly enjoyed on Fat Tuesday -- which will be celebrated on Feb. 13, 2018 this year -- the origin of the king cake goes back to Biblical times as part of the celebration of the Epiphany, celebrated on Jan. 6. Its popularity spread across Europe as a Christmastime delicacy before making its way to North America.
French settlers brought the recipe to the Gulf Coast in the 1700s, where the cinnamon-flavored treat was later associated with carnival season.
King cake recipes have transformed into various forms over the centuries, with a small baby doll being included somewhere inside the cake itself to symbolize the birth of Jesus at parties.
Tradition holds that the party guest who gets the piece of cake with the doll in it will be blessed with good fortune and be crowned the king or queen of said party. But royalty has its obligations as well, as the winner must provide the king cake the following year.

— With all the fad diets out there, it's hard to know what to eat in the morning.
Although some experts suggest that eating a low-carb diet could help you lose weight more quickly, some carbohydrates are actually good for you and can give you the sustained energy you need to get through the day.
According to Clemson University, a nutritious breakfast contains small amounts of protein and fat, with the bulk of the meal consisting of complex carbohydrates, like whole grains. If you've been shunning carbs in order to drop a few pounds, but feel lethargic and exhausted by lunchtime, adding a few back into your diet could give you the nutritional boost your body's craving.
Add these carb-filled foods to fuel your morning:
Whole-grain bread with protein
Switch your morning white bread to a healthier, heartier, whole-grain counterpart, and add a little protein and fat, like peanut butter, almond butter, mashed avocado or an egg, which will give you more energy and leave you feeling satisfied for hours.
Loaded old-fashioned oatmeal
The soluble fiber in slow-cooked, old-fashioned oatmeal actually helps slow down how fast your body absorbs carbohydrates. This keeps your blood sugar levels more consistent and even throughout the day. Instead of having it plain, load your old-fashioned oatmeal with nutrient-dense foods, like chopped nuts, berries, chia seeds or hulled hemp seeds.
Whole grain cereal with fruit
Starting your day with a bowl of cereal might seem like a no-no, but it's all about which cereal you pick. Avoid sugary, refined cereals, and pick out a whole-grain cereal high in fiber, low in sugar and big on vitamins. Top your bowl off with some fresh fruit that's high in antioxidants, such as raspberries or blueberries, and you'll have an early morning winner.
Homemade breakfast sandwich
Although a breakfast sandwich from a fast food restaurant might not provide you with the energy-filled morning you're hoping for, making your own homemade breakfast sandwich just might. Start with a whole grain English muffin, which contains complex carbs that digest slowly in your system, topped with an egg, leafy greens, fresh tomato and cheese.

— Don’t let anyone EVER tell you that there’s no good food in Dayton.
Dayton is loaded with local restaurants and we have the Instagrams to prove it!
Here are 10 of the most drool-worthy posts we’ve seen this week:
1. Basil’s On Market
After serving a ton or more of crab — literally — during its “All-You-Can-Eat” crab special on Fridays during Lent, Basil’s brought the special back.
2. Mudlick Tap House
Only Mudlick could make chicken livers look THIS good. It’s one of the many reasons we’re excited to have them downtown.
3. Dorothy Lane Market
DLM’s annual Spring Fling happened Thursday, April 27, and if it tasted anywhere as good as it looked... well, damn.
4. Lily’s Bistro
If that burger didn’t look good enough on its own, the refreshing cucumber gimlet is what REALLY sold us.
It's Friday! Today's burger special is our house seasoned patty with 3 Chili Gouda cheese and basil wasabi aioli, topped with arugula, corn tomato pico and fresh avocado! Veggie friends, try it with our house made falafel! Enjoy a cucumber lime gimlet with your lunch for just $7! Lunch til 3p. #lilysbistro #daytonohio #oregondistrict #downtowndayton #daytondining
5. The Dublin Pub
A Ruck with a side of pub fries? You might as well call it the Dub Pub Special.
6. Christopher’s Restaurant
They’re known for their traditional falafel, but this version on naan looks like it’s to die for.
This Vietnamese noodle salad from Meadowlark gets us every time. Every. Single. Time.
8. Bar Dumaine
Okay, so technically this isn’t a dish, but we’d bet our bottom dollar we’re going to like the finished product.
9. Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton
Yeah so, we’re definitely going to need to track Wicked ‘Wich down.
The #YouGotBeef is making its triumphant return this week. With provolone, goat cheese, roast beef, Mike Sell's salt and pepper chips topped with strawberry preserves, its for sure going to be the flavor party you'll want to experience. Schedule is in our bio, can't wait to see you. #alwaysfresh #lunch #sandwich #daytonohio #foodtruck #shoplocal
The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino has NOTHING on these cupcakes from Cake, Hope and Love.
