I have that same memory of Ici's ice cream from the first time I visited... only this time I anticipated the creative flavor combinations. The offerings that day included a maple-candied bacon, a spicy Mexican chocolate-salted almond, a malted banana, and a lemon-mint sherbert. After trying each flavor out, I ultimately decided on the caramel-cashew... in a hand rolled cone and topped off with crunchy cocoa nibs. Heavenly.
What I like about the ice cream here is that it is not overly sweetened, which means I could eat the ice cream all day, everyday for a year, without getting a toothache. What I do not like about the ice cream here is that the scoop is so petite for the price that I could not afford to eat it all day... and definitely not everyday for a year. I can, however, afford that Baked Alaska bombe. It looks so good... I want it so bad. I am coming for it next time. Kat, you in?
Until then, let's all get S.O.F.A.T.
