Being a devout follower of the ice cream threads at Chowhound, I thought I should post about Payard. I've had their ice cream only twice. It's not perfect but very interesting.
Some people might find their ice cream too soft, but it's definitely tasty. I love the caramel, which tastes like true caramel without being cloying.
The chocolate gelato is veeeery chocolaty. Strong, strong chocolate and I'd say almost not sweet at all.
The vanilla brownie is ok.
That's all I've tried. They have fruit sorbets but I rarely go for a sorbet when there is chocolate or caramel in front of me.
Anyway, ice cream lovers, just wanted to let y'll know there's another alternative.
