A Salacious Stumble

It was the only truck without a line when lunch started, so I headed to Molly Moon's to sample my favorite food group: ICE CREAM! I sampled flavor after flavor throughout the generous two hour lunch that IFBC afforded us to visit the trucks. All of the flavors were captivating, filling my mouth with creamy bursts of balsamic and strawberries or lavender and honey. The final trip to Molly Moon's meant waiting in line and while waiting, another blogger found herself balancing two flavors on sticks that were too small for the servings.

Caramel.

Salt.

Olive Oil.

Ice Cream.

She mushed them together to save them from the gravel below. This accidental combination captured in a digital moment was an inspiration for the cup I was about to purchase. Let me tell you that THIS is the way to go. Salty, sweet, creamy goodness that unravels and changes bite after bite. I may have to move to Seattle... or ask Molly Moon's to drive that blue truck down to San Jose!

Disclaimer:

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
