Flavour #32 – Want to Know What Heaven Tastes Like?

My local ice cream parlour asked me to develop an ice cream flavour that matches my personality. Hmm, well, I don’t know if this would match my personality, but let’s say this: If heaven had a taste, this would probably be it.

First up, can you guess? Chocolate – not just any old chocky, but the dark and dangerous kind. A little bit of bitter combined with the sweet of the ice-cream will make for some bitter-sweet bliss, I think.

I think a touch of coffee flavour will go nicely with the chocolate. This brings to mind some of the crazy things we did in the hostel while growing up, like melting blocks of chocolate into our cups of coffee. By the way, do yourself a favour – when you make hot chocolate next time, try adding some coffee. Pure decadent delight.

A little bit of custard too, should be quite good.

Some finely-grated short-bread cookies to add a bit of texture.

And then, the piece de resistance, the magic ingredient to add that sweet South African smile – some Cape Velvet. This reminds me of my preferred way to get sloshed – a tub of ice cream and a bottle of Cape Velvet. The thing is, when you start off, you put only a splash of Cape Velvet over your ice-cream. But as time progresses, the splash becomes bigger and bigger. Now why is that, I wonder? πŸ˜€

I just know they’ll pick my flavour number 36. Do you agree? By the way, don’t feel bad if you’re trying to lose weight – Do you remember the frog song: “Hand in hand, side by side, We all sin together.” (Or was it stand?) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
