another taste of Ici

The chocolate ice cream was very, very good. It had that chewy texture I've loved the rare times I've encountered it, in an ice cream just loaded with excellent chocolate. This is in my top five best chocolate ice creams ever.

The raspberry ice cream sandwich was also terrific. A real tart punchy flavor to the raspberry. My kid wasn't in her best sharing mood, however, so I only got a crumb of the gingersnap the ice cream was held in.

Coconut sorbet was mild and smooth. It would be good with a bittersweet chocolate sauce for a nice Mounds bar experience.

Their cone maker is still broken.

Mary Canales was there, and her mother or mother-in-law was bringing the kids from school. Boy, are they going to grow up with interesting eating habits. The hot fudge did not look like the kind that gets all thick when it hits the cold ice cream, which is a shame.

A lot of other kids were turning up besides our preschool posse. You don't get a lot of ice cream when you get a scoop at Ici, but when you're buying for a four-year-old that's actually a good thing.
