Let me say I really don't like soft serve ice cream that much, and I usually won't order it. But earlier tonight I ate the best vanilla soft serve I've ever had.
Unfortunately, it was at a carnival in Marlboro, NJ. (St. Gabriel's church). My daughter had a cupful, and I got to taste it. Rich, very creamy.. I could taste the richness of the cream base. Great texture and "mouthfeel." Just perfect. Served out of a standard Taylor machine, in a trailer. :)
Fortunately, tonight was the first night, and the carnival runs through Sunday. I will definitely head back there at some point so I can have my own cone! I never imagined soft serve could taste this good.
