NASHVILLE,Tenn. (WKRN) – Not only is this homemade creamy dessert made with a whole lot of love, but with a key local ingredient. Hattie Jane’s partnered up with Middle Tennessee State University and uses its milk directly to create their 12 daily flavors.

Since their opening last July, dozens of different flavors have been created by their awesome executive pastry chef. Some have been carefully calculated and the favorites, were crafted out of the blue.

“One day, I accidentally made Mint chip and that stayed. Then I made Candyland and that was a hit, and then Cookie Jar Supreme was utterly – it was just an accident. Period just can’t stop eating it. We go though so much of it that hopefully we have it in a half gallon,” said Executive Pastry Chef Lokelani Alalabanza.

Hattie Jane’s is a place with a good vibe and family, friendly fun. They gained popularity real quick.
