As I was browsing Instagram, I saw a picture of a macaron ice cream sandwich and I was like whoaaa they have that?! Gotta get my hands on it! Thankfully it wasn’t that difficult because it was from Beta 5 and I happen to work nearby! They had 4 flavours available that day and it’s not listed anywhere soooo I don’t quite remember what the other ones were besides the one I got! Sorry! I think there was a Tahitian vanilla and a chocolate one?
I got the Raspberry and Jasmine Tea ice cream sandwich which sounded the most enticing. The ice cream was sandwiched between two lemon shortbread cookies and there was also a layer of raspberry jam inside. I was also surprised that it was so big!
The lemon cookie was crunchy when you bit into it and you get the nice tart flavour from the raspberry jam which I really liked. The jasmine tea flavour from the ice cream was more like an afterthought since the flavour was pretty mild. I was just really impressed with this ice cream sandwich!!! I know it might not look very impressive but I would totally go back for another one!!! It was also only $4.
While we were there deciding on what we were getting, the server told us that they were actually making a few more flavours of the cream puffs and it would be a ten minute wait so we decided to wait for a cream puff too. We picked the Raspberry Earl Grey one. They only have one size for their box so even though we only got 1 cream puff they still gave us a huge box.
The presentation was pretty cute! It was like the cream puff had a lid on it with some glaze and tea leaves? Under the crispy pastry shell lid was some whipped cream and then inside the bottom half there was some raspberry cream and in the centre was the earl grey cream. At first we couldn’t find the earl grey part since we didn’t get to it yet. However, after eating the ice cream sandwich first, I have to say that the cream puff kinda paled in comparison. But the cream puffs are still pretty good for a treat once in a while.
Try the ice cream sandwiches since they’re seasonal!!! :) I have yet to try their chocolates though; maybe I’ll try those next. Also need to try ice cream sandwiches from Earnest!
PS. Like my ice cream themed header? ;)
