Hood S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches
and the Nosh Show Episode 75

[New for 2016] Good morning Nosh show listeners! We've hit the big 75 and to celebrate I did absolutely nothing special other than catch whatever germs were bogging my son down (you might hear my voice fade a bit during the episode). Anyway, I am better (but tired), so let's throw out the only new thing I've opened in the last few days.

Hood S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches
marshmallow flavored ice cream with chocolate chips
between two graham cracker wafers

I love the look of the tiny chocolate chips

I take a bite and one of the ingredients is out of balance with the rest of the sandwich. I want to say that it's almost a fake taste and my wife says almost a coffee taste. I think her word is more descriptive than mine. It's even almost... licorice? Oy, I am not amused.

The sign of a good ice cream sandwich is the urge to eat a second one. I have no such urge right now.

On Second Scoop: I slept on this one and tried again in the AM, and yeah, I am not a fan of the way they made the graham cracker wafers. I checked the ingredients and it's the molasses I am tasting. I'll be honest, I never realized there was molasses in graham crackers because everyone else does it subtly. Hood does not and it overrides everything else and just, ahhhh, I don't want to think about licorice.

Verdict?  Licorice?
Buy Again?  nope
