Down the Aisles 2: April’s Fool… or not?

    Uh oh, it looks like ink.

    The color is just screaming fake, real taro is faintly purple. My palm stains with indigo dye as I scoop the ice cream out of its cheap plastic tub. Sigh, I take a spoon. Divine. Coconut milk sweeps across the mouth. Nutty and grainy taro filters out all troubled thoughts. I thought taro yogurt with brownie bites at Yogurt Land was unbeatable, but this tops it. I read the ingredient list on the label.

    No coconut milk.

    Magnolia‘s 1.75-quart taro ice cream: $7.29.

    So what would you choose, the real and tasty kind or the artificial and supertasty kind?

    • Oh my gawd. This is like being on an acid trip. Well, if I had ever experienced such a drug-induced state, which I have not. Honest, Mom & Dad! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • What an amazing colour!

      @Carolyn: ice cream, acid, they make me lose my reason all the same. ๐Ÿ˜› (not that I’ve had acid ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
      @Theresa: thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    • How about make your own? I’ve played with taro a bit but I’ve never thought of making ice cream with it! I think I would rather use blackberries to get that beautiful color.

      I bet homemade would be sublime. I don’t have a kitchen so my hands are tied, but you should definitely try it and let me know how it goes. ๐Ÿ™‚
