Mango habanero sorbet

I have a new favorite thing: mango habanero sorbet from Cooking Fools.

With the first spoonful I realized it's the best mango sorbet I've every had: intensely mango, velvety, rich. Addictive. Then, after a few bites, after the sorbet has melted away, the heat starts to set in. Mild at first, but you keep eating, and it builds in intensity with each bite. The mango has a cooling effect, but then the habanero peeks out again, and it's this cycle of bursting flavour that can only be ended by sheer will of putting the container back in the freezer so there will still be some left for later, for friends to try when they come over. Because they simply MUST try this stuff!

Logistics: a container of the sorbet is $4.50, a little more than your average sorbet but unbelievably worth it. Since they make it on site, there are no preservatives. Thus, it will break down quickly if you have a long trip home, so make it quick or bring a cooler. Cooking Fools is located at 1916 W. North Ave., Chicago.

I posted about it on F***CorporateGroceries.net, but everything I said about the sorbet there I've said here, so I'm linking to the Cooking Fools site instead.
