Secret Ice Cream Social

This past weekend Superking and I had several fun and interesting food adventures involving three of my favorite things to cream, cupcakes, and cheese.  You may remember my recent post I did about an Irish dinner we had through an organization known as Feastly.  A mysterious Feastly Facebook post went up Friday afternoon saying only that 8 seats were available for a secret ice cream social on Sunday at 2pm.  No other details other than instructions to email for the address. We decided we couldn't pass this up. This delightful ice cream social we attended was now our 2nd Feastly experience. So much fun, not to mention the delicious ice creams we were able to sample.

Our lovely host, Victoria, is an attorney by day and ice cream connoisseur by night and she has her own blog called Ice Cream Jubilee, where she shares all her unique ice cream creations. A friend of hers graciously opened her downtown DC home to allow Victoria to invite a select few to try some of her latest inventions. What we got was a smorgasbord of flavors!

Thai Iced Tea...
Fresh and light, slightly citrusy

Raspberry Rosewater...
Fruity with a slight floral aftertaste...normally I'm not a fan of floral flavors/scents as they can tend to be overwhelming, but I was pleasantly surprised how subtle the rose flavor was and how the raspberry complimented it perfectly.

Banana Ginger...
Neither one of us like bananas but combined with the ginger it was a winning combination! The ginger helped mellow out the banana flavor, giving it a more creamy flavor

Earl Grey...
Love Earl Grey tea...the bergamot flavor always makes me think of Fruit Loops, my favorite sugary cereal. This Earl Grey ice cream did not disappoint! One of my faves!

Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter Swirl...
You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter...the little pretzel pieces added the perfect salty crunch!

Midnight Mocha...
This was dangerously smooth with a hint of kahlua...very rich and dark.
The texture of each ice cream was nice and creamy and each flavor came through beautifully! It would be hard to pick just one favorite. As we took a poll amongst the guests as to their favorite, it seemed everyone chose a different one.  There wasn't one flavor that stood out to be the best as they were all super yummy! Can't wait to see and taste what she comes up with next!!
