Flavors of the Month: December 2012
The Best Fruitcake You'll Ever Have
Word on the street is that there is really only one fruitcake in the entire world. It just gets passed from family to family each year (hat tip, Johnny Carson). Well, this year, it’s our year. We’ve got the fruitcake (and now you do, too). And, as is our style, we reconstructed it in ice cream form.It’s equal parts pecans, raisins, currants, candied ginger, and glacéed fruit, soaked in a maple-brandy ‘scream. We guarantee it’s the best version of the worst possible holiday gift that you’ve ever had.
That's great, it starts with an earthquake...
The end of 2012 is one for the ages. Speculation over what exactly will happen come 12/21/12 (the official end of the Mayan calendar) conjures such images as supervolcanos, geomagnetic reversals, and the mysterious appearance of a certain Planet X (on a collision path with Earth, natch). We took this opportunity to pay homage to the apocalypse-predicting Mayans with The Last Pint, a xocolatl ice cream, made with Mast Brothers chocolate and chilli peppers. See you in 2013 (or not?)..
