Flavor #32

A new flavour for Ice cream ?

This is a job for my inner child….if not for letting the younger members of my family loose in the kitchen  to create to their hearts content

There’s already so many to choose from, it surprises me how the likes of Ben and Jerrys manage to come up with new ones.

However, there’s always something missing from the mix.

I mean – walking into Whittard’s there’s a whole host of flavours for coffee and hot chocolate…

So along those lines – how about a new Neapolitan Ice cream ?  a Deconstructed Banana Split, with Banana, Chocolate and Marshmallow flavours.  Thing is with Neapolitan is, it doesn’t have to be the same three flavours – pick your favourites and go wild.  You could go all zesty with Orange lime or lemon – or even deconstruct a northern English favourite with Vimto inspired flavours – i’m thinking Blackberry, Raspberry and Grape.

You could add your favourite sweets into the mix – Jelly Beans, Chocolate Drops, Popping Candy…”Space Dust” – now that would raise a smile.

And of course there’s always the fun fictional fruits – remember “willy wonkas chocolate factory” – Snozzberry ice cream anybody?

So let the kids loose in the kitchen as  their favourite sweets mix with their favourite flavours, banana with chocolate, chocolate with cherries, strawberries and cream…

The Fun thing about it is you’ll have three of your favourite flavours and as it softens coming out of the tub – it’ll mix into a heavenly taste.

I really enjoy a Hot Chocolate at the end of the day. Particularly on winter days like today. I love it when the hot cocoa melts into the milk releasing the lovely smell of dark milk or white chocolate into the air.
It’s something we should be grateful to the Aztecs for…as they had been drinking it for years before the Spaniards came along….
Nowadays of course – there’s so much variety – Coffee-infused chocolate for the Cappucino set who drink at your Costas or your Starbucks, Orange Flavoured or Banofee Flavour for those who like something sweet and now there’s a heap of White Chocolate varieties too…Crème Brulee and Strawberry Flavours have recently found their way into the local branch of Whittard’s which stock these yummy treats

My Favourite Flavour ? It’s got to be minted hot chocolate. Its really rich, warm, dark, satisfying and most of all – Minty.  If Whittard’s get any in during Christmas then Costa may have a job on their hands to entice me in…as there’s nothing better than a hot chocolate you’ve made for yourself.
I can smell those aromas as I’m typing…and I’ve not even entered the kitchen yet

Time for a little something, I think.
