I’ve written about Ciao Bella’s tart yet tasty Key Lime Pie ice cream sandwiches before, so I was excited to try these Sea Salt Caramel ones. Quick summary: Ciao…

Cold drinks taste better in a glass. Does anyone remember when coke and other sodas (pop, soft drinks) came in bottles? I don’t like anything carbonated except champagne, but…
Ooh, not much good to say on this one, sorry, Klondike.
First of all, the name? Please. What the Fudge Brownie. Trying to be hip by using a swear word doesn’t work with square ice cream patties. (get the joke?!) Off-color language is not appetizing. Also, annoying that Klondike drops the plural just because they feel like it. There are 4 in a box, so it’s not Brownie, it’s Brownies.
- brownies my way
There is enough ice cream as an ingredient for it to qualify for the ice cream label, not just frozen dessert or whatever they call non-ice cream products. Which is vanilla flavored in this case, with 2 cardboard brown soft crackers on top and bottom (which they call brownies), and some chocolate goo in the middle.
This is one of my most famous cartoons evah! Been published a lot of places, including in my chocolate book, of course. Fess up, there’s a lot of time…
Forgive me, readers, for I have sinned. The subtitle of this blog is Chocolate, and not-Vanilla. And yet I bought Vanilla this time!! yes.
I’m talking about Vaniglia Vanilla Bean Gelato, which I found at Gelsons. Gelson’s is an upscale supermarket across the street from the ultra-popular Trader Joe’s, and yet it does very well. (for one thing, they’re open til midnight, so yay!) They also have a very tasteful, astute buyer for ice creams, and get the newest ice creams before anyone else on the block.
Why did I choose vanilla, when chocolate was right in my face? Because I have been disappointed in the past with gelato or sorbet, when it’s just a frozen chocolate water concoction. If I wanted that, I’d save my upscale dollars, and just buy Fudgesicles. So I looked at the ingredients, and sure enough, didn’t see much cream in the chocolate version. What I did see in the Vanilla flavor was egg yolks. I am always excited if I can find anything resembling custard ice cream (like I used to buy at the boardwalk), so the game was on!
