Winter is in full swing. We’ve suffered some terrible cold, and the country overall has endured weather that has challenged or bested the record books in ferocity. None of that has cooled my desire for frozen treats though. In trying to bring the blog back to regular transmission I have indulged in several kinds in the past week. Unfortunately, while the photos […]Read more "Joshua’s Lemon and Lime Sorbet"
If you’re able, you’ve got to try this flavour, even if it’s just to say you’ve tried it. You get delicious gelato, large moon rock chunks of hokey pokey (including a large piece of hokey pokey dipped in chocolate and perched on top) and thin strips of smoky bacon with white chocolate. The idea shouldn’t really […]Read more "Bacon and Hokey Pokey Ice Cream"
Does this do what it says on the tin? Do you get more awesome? If you’ve never quite let go of your inner eight year old this has the essence of dense, chocolaty, childhood delight. When I was young, the best ice cream was all about the bits you got inside. Usually, it was just […]Read more "Much Moore Awesome Chocolate Cookies & Fudge"
There’s a part in the movie Little Nicky where Adam Sandler’s trying-to-be-a-good-little-evil-son-of-the-Prince-of-Darkness character tries to show his nefarious chops by changing the contents of a can of coke into Pepsi. Seems like a lame trick on the surface, unless you’re really serious about your cola. Perhaps someone at Joshua’s magic factory was watching this clip and decided that […]Read more "Joshua’s Lemon Curd Ice Cream"
Marlon Brando famously stuffed his cheeks with cotton balls to augment his voice and his look for his role as Vito Corleone in the Godfather. Here Joshua’s have stuffed a pelican bill’s worth of butterscotch fudge pieces and sauce into the ice cream, and the result is less Marlon Brando Italian than smooth Sean Connery Scottish. Think of that velvety accent, […]Read more "Joshua’s Butterscotch Fudge Ice Cream"
Blueberries just don’t get the same respect as other berries do around my way. When it comes to fresh, preserved, and jellied, the kudos falls to the likes of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and boysenberries. Given how good they are to you nutritionally, seems a little unfair that they’re the low men on the berry totem pole. So, when I saw […]Read more "Oob Organic Blueberry Ice Cream"
There is nothing about a busy Friday, or inclement weather, or a belly full of Yum Char that will keep me away from Giapo when I’m in town. In fact, when I’m in the mood, I’ll happily go in for four scoops, especially when I spy a customer after me getting two scoops of sorbet […]Read more "Giapo Gelato Extravaganza"
You’ve got to love the lack of hype in the Pure New Zealand Ice Cream packaging. There’s no marketing spiel on it, all they’re going to tell you is that it’s Maude Pinot Noir. Perhaps you were wondering about the deliciously rich, Big Bird strutting around in chains and rings like a platinum Mr T rich, yolky French vanilla style […]Read more "Pure New Zealand Ice Cream – Maude Pinot Noir"
Alas, not every blog makes it past the early production stages. I do a lot of blog writing in my head (not always a good thing, sometimes I get better material as I type) and if nothing grabs me during that process, that topic doesn’t grab a spot in a post on its own. Here […]Read more "Blogging Prototypes"
There’s a scene in Pulp Fiction where Uma Thurman’s character orders a $5 shake. 1994 John Travolta is gobsmacked by the price and that his boss’ wife is prepared to pay that much for it. When the shake arrives, Travolta is pretty keen for a try. He loves it, while not sure whether it’s worth the $5, he’s sure he loves the free […]Read more "Kohu Road Dark Chocolate Ice Cream"
