The weather’s been so hot lately that I’ve been eating a tub of ice cream every three days. This is probably why I’ve been trying to come up with new ways of consuming it. At one point, I added some chocolate wafer rolls, and realized you don’t even need a spoon because you can use the rolls to scoop up the ice cream.
It’s best to do this with a premium brand like Häagen-Dazs, because they’re really dense (less air is mixed in), so they stay firm for longer. That means you don’t have to eat the ice cream quickly before it melts…but if you lived alone and had no one to mind the slurping, a wafer roll doubles as a straw too.
This one is Caramel Cone Explosion, my favourite Häagen-Dazs flavour: caramel swirls and sugar cone covered in Belgian milk chocolate with roasted almost pieces, in caramel ice cream.
I also recently tried If I Had A Million Flavors by Ben & Jerry’s, which is described on the tub, “A Collision of Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams mixed with Chocolate-covered toffee, White Chocolate Chunks, Peanut Butter Cups & Chocolate-Covered almonds”. Which is pure hedonism, really.
