Say hello to yet another Berkeley shop that’ll tickle your sweet tooth–Tara’s Organic Ice Cream on College and Alcatraz avenues. Just blocks from massively popular ice cream shop, Ici, Tara’s threatens to throw it down with our resident bougie dessert stop with four five-star reviews on Yelp following its Sunday opening. Visitors are raving about the crazy flavors concocted by the New Mexico-based Tara Esperanza, some of which include garam masala or green chile. Our resident foodie, Christine Borden, enjoyed her taste of Tara’s, but wasn’t as ecstatic as the eager yelpers. She also stated that the flavors “weren’t as rich” as Ici. But, hey, maybe she’s biased?

Speaking of dessert places, joining us pretty soon within a two-minute walk from campus will be that overpriced cream puff chain vendor from Japan, Beard Papa’s. Their Telegraph Avenue location should be open shortly–right next to Moolicious, which is a store that sells sugary cereal combos that you can top with brownies and other caloric items. Both stores are also, incidentally, in the center of Berkeley’s yogurt and tapioca district. Apparently, we college students can ever get enough sweets.

In 10 years we predict everyone in Berkeley will look like those blob people in “Wall-e.”
