Newish, Dee-lish Ice Cream Flavors
This has been a banner time for new store-bought ice cream flavors. In fact, just about everything in Scoboco's freezer these days has come out in the past year.
Häagen Dazs has an impressive line up of seriously scrumptious new flavors, including Sticky Toffee Pudding (if you can't get to Schiller's Liquor Bar), Black Walnut (tres sophisticated, and best mixed with a chocolate-based flavor in your bowl), Black Raspberry Chip (refreshing rasperry sorbet, vanilla ice cream, rich chunks of dark chocolate), and, the best of them all from HD, Caramel Cone, which combines caramel ice cream, caramel swirl, roasted almonds and generous pieces of crunchy, chocolate-covered sugar cones.
Ben and Jerry's hasn't been slacking off either. Among the newer delights in Scoboco's regular rotation: Marsha Marsha Marshmallow (chocolate ice cream, fudge chunks, toasted marshmallow, and somehow-gooey and stunningly delicious graham cracker swirls), and the absolute single best flavor of ice cream available in stores today, the brilliant Vermonty Python, an impossibly smooth and creamy concoction of coffee liqueur ice cream, wonderfully textured with sweet chocolate cookie crumb swirl, and fudge cows for extra bite. Everyone I know who's ever tried this has fallen in love.
