Earnest Ice Cream

July 5, 2014

Whisky Hazelnut - 2

J's comment > not bad; well balanced whisky flavor & just the slightest nuttiness of hazelnut

Hot Fudge: Vanilla ice cream, Earnest hot fudge, roasted almonds, Vancouver Island sea salt, whipped cream, preserved cherry - 2

J's comment > not bad; on its own, the vanilla ice cream would be OK, but not nearly as tasty as when paired w all the ingredients in this hot fudge; just the right amts of everything to make this one heck of a hot fudge, except the cherry though, needs more than just one cherry, a very tasty preserved cherry this is; just the slightest hint of the sea salt to kick up the hot fudge combo another notch; despite appearances the almonds weren't so much that it drowned out the other flavors

Lavender - 2

Salted Caramel - 2+

Vegan strawberry daiquiri - 2

J's comment > all not bad; lavender was creamy and had strong lavender flavor - essentially the vanilla ice cream w lavender notes; the salted caramel still reigns as my fav flavor from the Earnest shop; very surprised that the vegan strawberry actually tasted good and was like a creamy strawberry

London Fog - 2

J's comment > not bad; coffee flavor not too strong, but this flavor pales far far far down the scale when compared w the other flavors above

Chocolate sorbet - 2

J's comment > not impressed w this one; this was just a chocolate ice cream! slightly bitter too in the end notes; definitely not a 'sorbet' in the strictest sense

Extra Comment
In general, I find the Earnest ice creams all have a certain depth that lingers after every lick, unlike other generic ice creams that just delivers on instant gratification.
