Gelato Maker Offers Bloody Good ‘Black Dahlia’ Flavors To Crime Bus Passengers

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If Baskin Robbins can create 31 flavors of ice cream, then surely an unsolved mystery can inspire 12.

That’s the case at one Los Angeles gelato shop, where owner Tai Kim has been anxiously concocting new flavors in honor of the infamous “Black Dahlia” murder case, inspiration for the upcoming movie of the same name.

Kim says his 12 new gelato flavors “honor Elizabeth Short,” the aspiring actress whose gruesome murder in 1947 Los Angeles remains a mystery.

Kim’s tasty treats include flavors people in the 1940s, including Elizabeth Short, may have enjoyed, such as “Chunky Apple Rum” and “Pomegranate and Poppyseed.”

But the most intriguing is “Blood Orange Sorbet,” which Kim says “looks bloody, but tastes delicious.”

Kim debuts his killer confections starting Friday (Sept. 15), the same day The Black Dahlia film opens in theaters.
