Village Ice Cream

May 19, 2014

(top to bottom)

Mango Coconut Milk - 2

Earl Grey Tea - 2

Everything Mark Loves: Caramel, nutella, pecans - 2+

Waffle cone - 2+

J's comment > thank goodness for Mark, everything he loves, I do too! this combo sounds like such a cliche and overdone (caramel, nuts, etc.) but it works most of the time, and the Village definitely nailed it this time - each ingredient was had just the right amt so that it wasn't too skewed and turned into something like PECANS, caramel & nutella; waffle cone was really crunchy and totally worth the $1 upgrade; 
not bad for both the mango and earl grey, but the flavors were a tad subtle, would have liked stronger flavors in these two scoops

Cardamom - 2+

J's comment > I'm usually indifferent to this flavor, but the Village made it work here; excellent balance of the strong essence of cardamom which can be easily overwhelming and the inherent creaminess of the Village ice cream that tones it down; BTW, this was ONE scoop even though it looks like 2

Phil & Sebastian Coffee - 2+

Toasted Coconut - 2

J's comment > coffee creamy and not too strong, no bitters at all, kinda like an ice cream latte; coconut not bad, but slightly one dimensional
