The people at Sheer Bliss Ice Cream saw me coming.
It was Friday night and I was tired from a long work week. I stopped at Treasure Island on my way home. I had no idea what I was looking for, and shouldn't have been looking for anything, yet there I was. I just happened to wander by the frozen section where they keep the ice cream (yeah, right).
It was the tin that first caught my eye. I'm a sucker for tins. If something comes in a tin, it doubles my desire to take it home with me. Usually, I can resist the urge because I really don't want or need what is in them. But this one had ice cream in it!
And not just any ice cream. This tin had pomegranate ice cream with dark chocolate chips inside it. And another thing for which I am a sucker is new ice cream flavors. I've never seen pomegranate ice cream before, but I've always loved pomegranates. They're a pain to eat but I love their flavor.
And it is a tasty treat, made with sugar cane and "all natural ingredients." Although I'm always suspicious when I see any label that says "all natural." The slight tartness of the pomegranate cuts the heavy richness of the cream, and the chocolate chips add a counter tone that brings it all together at the end. It's a lovely little indulgence.
Although at $6.50 a pint, it's more expensive of an indulgence than I'm likely to give in to again.
