Would you buy an ice-cream from this man??

My friend Adam recently came back from Italy and from a little town called Sorrento was this billboard. In the back streets of the town may I add. This has got to be the most scariest billboard for ice-cream in existence. Unless readers, you know of any others…

REVIEW: Frankie and Benny’s “Sherbet Dip” Sundae

For a birthday treat, me and a few others went to a well-known chain restaurant called Frankie’s and Benny’s which serve New York Italian Style food. Me, being British ordered Fish and Chips, I recommend this main meal if you ever so happen to pop into a Frankie and Benny’s.

However, the main attraction was dessert and there were many sundaes to choose from the menu. For only £5.95 I went for the “sherbet dip”, which consisted of lemon sorbet, vanilla ice-cream, real berry sauce and whipped cream.

I got to say it was incredibly tasty, the cream on the top was your normal spray cream from a can but the lemon sorbet was sour on the tongue straight away, cleansed the palette beautifully and the berries gave a sharp bitter taste with the lemon sorbet. After the sour notes you got a creamy, rich  full flavoured vanilla ice-cream and it slipped down like a treat. The first part of the sundae was just like a sherbet dip that you got as a child, and the sourness hits the back of your throat for a while but gently dissolves away, until the next bite.

Frankie and Benny’s “Sherbet Dip” Sundae                              8/10

Perfect dessert, not too heavy, light on the stomach and a lovely cleansing taste at the end of the meal, sweet and bitter together in harmony.

Want some taste with that ice-cream?

Normally with low fat, or no fat products, the taste is either bland or frankly disgusting. The calories shaved meant that our favorite mouth watering sugary sweet products became unappetizing, however not anymore there is a new product range craze that started with the soda companies in the USA. Mid-calorie products. Instead of cutting as many calories as possible or fat, they cut the calorie content by half, and the brands try and keep as much of the great taste that everyone loves so much. the first ice-cream brand to do such a range is Dreyer’s.
