Johnson's Ice Cream at Brown Bag Deli

I trekked over to the new Johnson's Ice Cream in the side entrance of the Brown Bag Deli. Now that Bakery Gingham features Hartzler ice cream, German Village is awash in sweet Ohio dairy products.

I wrote about the cheese sandwich at Brown Bag almost two years ago. During that time period, purveyors of desserts have come and gone. It started with Bakery Gingham, which has now moved south to Thurman Avenue. It was followed by Belle's Old Timey Donuts. Those are the places I remember, although there may have been other vendors there.

Johnson's Real Ice Cream is made in Bexley. The main location features 70 flavors, while the German Village outpost offered about eight. Flavors included chocolate, three bean vanilla, black raspberry chocolate chip, cookie dough, and the delicious banana fudge ice cream as well as cappuccino yogurt. The flavors are more traditional than those at haute outlets like Jeni's.

At $2.50 a scoop, Johnson's should do a decent business cooling down Village residents at the end of the long, hot summer (also, MyColumbusOhioBlog wrote about Hartzler ice cream at Bakery Gingham, so you can get the scoop on their offerings over here).
