I cringe every time I hear someone talk more about the icing on a birthday cake instead of the cake itself. Remember, it is birthday cake, not birthday icing!
I have the same reaction when someone waxes poetic about Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream.
One of my biggest complaints about the Ben and Jerry’s Mafia is that people get excited about everything but the actual ice cream base for any given flavor. I have had countless, sad spoonfuls of oatmeal cookie or waffle cone whenever I eat Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. There should be more ice cream than cookies, candy, or anything else on my spoon!
The Cinnamon Toast Crunch Ice Cream at Creamistry is an outstanding masterpiece.
At first glance, it does look like there is more cereal than ice cream in this cup, but that is deceptive. Every single bite provides more ice cream than cereal with ratio of about 2-1.
Cinnamon and ice cream are not often put together and I do not know why. Ice cream adds a balancing layer to the nuances inherent cinnamon.
Add some Cinnamon Toast Crunch and you have another layer with crunch.
The sugar on the cereal unifies and binds everything together with joy and a sly smile.
The liquid nitrogen used to immediately freeze the ice cream is essentially novelty, bringing a bit of excitement a simple scoop can not provide.
The real star of the show at Creamistry is the entire package: a tasty scoop of ice cream that will remind you of eating cereal in the living room Saturday mornings while sitting on your couch watching Scooby Do with your grandma.
