Joshua’s Lemon and Lime Sorbet

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 […]

Bacon and Hokey Pokey Ice Cream

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 […]

Joshua’s Lemon Curd Ice Cream

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 […]

Joshua’s Butterscotch Fudge 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, […]

Oob Organic Blueberry 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 […]

Giapo Gelato Extravaganza

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 […]

Blogging Prototypes

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 […]

Kohu Road Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

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 […]
