The search for the ultimate caramel flavor continues now!
Wait, is my ice cream smiling at me?
Well, there certainly are lots and lots and lots of truffles. 1/4" cube after 1/4" cube of spoon filling discoveries. That is a good thing that lasts throughout the entire pint.... Ok, I'll be honest, besides the truffles, I didn't get a huge read on this one the first time I tried it. It wasn't love at first bite, but please understand that I'm not saying it's bad either. I'm just having a little trouble settling into this one because I'm trying too hard to compare it to other caramel flavors I've had.
The true second sampling of this one came during my bananas foster breakfast sundae. That was a tasty breakfast and if I learned anything from that experience, it's that this ice cream needs to melt (temper) first. I think that's just the way 2nd St creamery is, it's solid at first and needs time to prepare. The caramel really started to go everywhere and the base became more pliable and fun. I'm going to use this knowledge for one final go at this ice cream.
On Second Scoop: Ice cream tempered, let's dig in. Mmmmmm, better. I was over-thinking this one way too much on the first scooping, but once I just let it all blend together a bit, it totally came alive. The plentiful truffles are neat, but for me it's the swirl that adds a robust flavor that keeps you scooping for more. I like it, I like it a lot and now I'm sad it's gone.
Buy Again? Yup
