We here at City Paper know the signs of addiction. And that’s not at all what’s going on with our Taharka Brothers’ salted caramel ice cream habit. It’s not that we need to have it, that tangy rush of salt lending the perfect edge to the slow velvety caramel sweetness, our usually warring desires for savory and sweet joining sticky hands in blissful union. It’s a flavor with a trajectory, like a melody or a finely crafted sentence, but we don’t have to taste it on the regular or anything. Yet we do our best, because: altruism. Taharka Brothers is a venture of the Sylvan Beach Foundation, a nonprofit that teaches entrepreneurial skills to at-risk Baltimore youth. So every time we buy ice cream (from the Taharka Brothers ice cream cart at various festivals and other spots around town), no matter how embarrassingly often, we’re helping the cause.
