Cafe Fanny Ice Cream

Not crazy about it. It has an odd texture which may have to do with a high butterfat content.

The chocolate is intense in flavor and reminded me of Sketches fudgsicle. However the Cafe Fanny ice cream is really grainy. It is not unpleasant, sort of like eating a frozen brownie.

The Meyer Lemon was full of lemon flavor and lots of lemon peel, but again that texture was off putting. At a price of $4.50 for a scoop, I probably won't be exploring more flavors.

They had vanilla, dulce de leche and orange blossom. Unfortunately the orange blossom was sold out.

While Chez Panisse is my favorite restaurant, I can be somewhat of a food barbarian, not appreciating French Laundry or those fancy Ferry Plaza chooolate makers.

So am I missing something here?
