More Praise for MILK (with photos!)

Thanks to all the MILK fans who have been touting their frozen delights. I only wish I'd had more company so I could share different things.

I got the banana butterscotch ice cream bar. WOW! This raises ice cream bars to a whole other level.

THE ICE CREAM: fresh, creamy, but somehow light. I don't mean like low-fat, low-sugar light. I mean fluffy and creamy light, with an intense banana flavor. The aftertaste it left was like I'd eaten a frozen banana, but it was much easier to bite since MILK keeps their treats in a freezer that's not too cold so the goods aren't rock solid.

THE BUTTERSCOTCH: thin, crispy, and buttery with crispy pieces of almonds. There was none of that breaking off in giant shards that you get from lesser ice cream bars, which I appreciated as I ate while driving.

THE PRICES: $3 for a big ice cream bar. Not bad! It's no $1.50 Costco bar, but it's far superior. And considering how many bars out there are almost $3 (Haagen Daaz, Dove, Ben & Jerry's), this is very worth it.

Other treats include $5 sundaes and $2.50 ice cream cookie sandwiches. There are also little truffle-sized chocolate covered ice cream balls (bon bons!) for those going easy on the sugar.

The cakes are $4.50 a slice and looked great, but the blue velvet was a little too intensely blue for me to want to try.

All in all, a real find for this dairy lover! Finally, a full fat, down home, reasonably priced dessert shop in LA. Too bad they close at 10.
