Egg Farm Dairy Ice Cream

On a whim I sent my girlfriend six pints of Egg Farm
Dairy ice cream, which I had read about here and which
can be ordered over the internet. (i actually called
with a question about cyber-ordering and ended up
ordering by phone.)

I'm just here to confirm the reports of its
wonderfulness. The intensity of flavor, and the
overwhelming, unmistakable fresh taste of each was
stunning. Pink Grapefruit sorbet is very much a
piercing water ice--nothing but grapefruit and pure
cane sugar. Fall flower honey icecream has a slightly
grainy texture and a delicious honey taste. Ginger ice
cream is strong and creamy. The chocolate is almost
like a block of baker's chocolate--it flakes more than
scoops, and is unlike any chocolate ice cream I've had.
Strawberry rhubarb ice cream and sorbet both scream of
fresh strawberries, the sorbet version being closer to
a sherbet than an ice. I really place this ice cream
on par with the best I've had. I love Berthillon in
Paris, but this definitely tastes fresher (and after
the American way, is much creamier). Having it
delivered costs a pretty penny ($46 for 6 pints) but I
think it's a worthy splurge. Order it on-line at the
link below.
