Chocolate-Covered Cannoli Ice Cream, Summer Taste Test

My Beloved Silliest of Sillies,
   It didn't sound right: mascarpone cannoli ice-cream. Pasta shells dipped in chocolate and sprinkled in ice-cream?
   Doh. My bad. I confused cannoli with cannollini. As you likely know, because you're worlds more evolved, cannoli is a pastry shell, whilst cannollini is a pasta shell.
   And mascarpone? It's a -----. Yes, a cheese. An Italian cheese. Hm, cheesy ice cream with chocolate pastry bits. What could go wrong?
   Not much. Not anything really. Unless like me, you thought you'd be eating pasta ice-cream. The mascarpone has a light, sweet, subtle fruity taste - like a mixture of rainbow sherbert, tapioca, and coconut. It's yummy. It's all gone, within two days. (I exercised restraint. I really did. Not so much.)

   The ice-cream looks like your ordinary, boring chocolate chip, but this one dances ecstatically in your mouth. The cannoli chips are big little chunks of chocolate encased crunchiness.

   I wish I had something bad to say about this. It was approximately $5. It'd be nice if they had a lactose free version, so it wasn't so ruinous on the diet plan, and more accessible to all of you.  

   But it has NO BOVINE GROWTH HORMONES! Think about that!
No worries about growing bovines after consuming it! How remarkable does it get?!

Be well, my friends. Stay cool and hot in the most delightful of ways.

    1. Haha. Oh that Violet, Mistress. What a brat she was. But I'm kinda fixated on blueberry these days too. It's delicious. Nothing, however, beats chocolate.
      Kisses.

  4. Hi, Robyn!

    I have heard of bacon flavored toothpaste and lemon-lime flavored bowling balls, but was not familiar with Chocolate-Covered Cannoli Ice Cream. Thanks for posting a description and your taste test findings. Throughout my younger years I consumed tons of ice cream and pastry products. Although I have avoided most of them in recent years, your review of this cool concoction has me curious and eager to try it. "Dances ecstatically in your mouth" reminds me of the time I ate a cricket. :) The pics of you savouring your decadent treat are suitable for framing.

    Stay cool (and hot), dear friend Robyn, and enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. Hi, Dear Shady,
      I'm stuck on the concept of a lemon-lime bowling ball. Is this an actual bowling ball. Does one still eat it if it rolls through the gutter? Heck, I would. You are always good for random and fascinating factoids.

      Thank you, Shady.
      Keep your spirits high and have a fabulous week.

  5. I could be persuaded :-)

    My husband has started using mascarpone instead of buttercream in cakes - he adds drops of vanilla extract and oh boy are his Victoria Sponges delicious!

    1. That's a brilliant substitution, Annalisa. And it cuts down on fat calories, so they're healthy too! Smiles. Sounds divine.

      Cheers. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. That's why I can't trust myself to buy those bags of chips. I always eating them before they could be put to use for intended purposes. They're so yummy.

  9. I might try that ice cream as I am usually a strict chocolate girl. It looks like you are enjoying it very much and, in that last pic, you must be dreaming about Joe Biden

      Cheers, Birgit. Good to see you again here.
