Cafe Fanny's Ice Cream (Berkeley)

Melanie Wong | Aug 6, 200511:49 PM     12

Last week I coughed up $4.50 to try a cup-size container of Cafe Fanny's dulce de leche ice cream. The flavor was direct and intense, loved the cajeta and the vanilla-specked ice cream around it. The texture was somewhat sandy and icy with a couple spots that had bigger ice crystals making it seem less than fresh. Since it wasn't scooped, it needed aeration and I found it tasted better when I shaved off tendrils. I'm glad I tried it, but don't think I'll spend this kind of money again.

What do others think?
