Ok I never really got Molly Moon’s in Wallingford… it was crowded filled with wealthy children with very sticky hands, and although I loved the texture of the ice cream the flavors never did it for me, great ideas poor execution (read my review of Half Pint). For instance the Salted Caramel was too salty, and I am a salt fiend, or the coffee had little coffee ground still in it, yuch.
But tonight my opinion was completely changed! The Salted Black Licorice Ice Cream is my new official flavor of choice. I love love love salted black licorice (sbl). I love sbl so much I gave it as party favors at my wedding. And this ice cream perfectly captures everything I love about it and enrobes those wonderful flavors in high fat creamy ice cream OMG.
I did see one lady scraping the baby beet sorbet off her double scoop, when asked she said it was good but too intense. I am eager to try other flavors but honestly I could walk back for another scoop of the SBL.
