Ice Cream OTPs
As strange as it sounds, I don't really eat that much ice cream. It's not that I don't like it (although I will often say that I don't, this is really not exactly accurate) but more that I don't crave it and so don't eat it much. Also, when you've grown up with something your whole life--as I grew up in an ice cream shop--it isn't much of a treat.
So I am interested in the ice cream OTPs of my flist, with an OTP being an flavor, sundae, or ice-cream-related concoction that you can devise. Perhaps it's vanilla and fudge or perhaps pickles and pistachio (arandil13 or 1lady_so_divine? :^P)...either way, I am interested in knowing what the ice cream fans of my flist have to say.
If you're curious, my ice cream OTPs are, first and foremost, vanilla ice cream--particularly French vanilla or vanilla bean--and hot fudge and hot caramel. Not only are these tastes that (I think) are made to go together, but put together in a sundae glass, they make a beautiful--but simple--presentation.
After that (prepare to cringe, frenchpony!), my OTP is bittersweet chocolate and raspberry. Bittersweet chocolate, I think, is best done as a sorbet, but ice cream will work and even regular chocolate could work in a pinch. But bittersweet is best.
And, of course, waffle sundaes. Eru invented waffles before glassware as a convenient place to serve ice cream, since the little nooks soak up the mess so very well.
Incidentally, the Nelyo's test kitchen is alive and well. I am in the process of making grasshopper sandwiches for Bobby, Potter, and myself. No, it does not involve insects (as these are forbidden by my vegetarian diet) but mint chocolate chip cookies, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and a thin layer of fudge. It's my first time making them--although not mint chocolate chip ice cream--so we'll see how they turn out.
