FleischmanAdam Fleischman, the busy entrepreneur behind Umami Burger, Umamicatessan, 800 Degrees and Red Medicine, has acquired an ownership stake in L.A. Creamery. In addition to helping the local company grow distribution for its ice cream (which Fleischman has long served at Umami Burger), Fleischman is creating a host of wild new flavors.

The most interesting is called Porc Phat and is made with Spanish Iberico lardo, Asian pears, hazelnuts and pure mint gel. Other flavors include: Moonshine + Caramel Corn; Absinthe (made with the actual spirit and created specifically for an adult root beer float that will debut at Umami Burger Anaheim on July 2); and Mezcal, made with mezcal and orange liqueur.

Fleischman joins L.A. Creamery at an auspicious time for the company since it just launched a new website, which ships pints overnight to fans across the country.
