Frozen Jose Mier on Mint Chip Ice Cream
What is it with Delaware? Did they think they’re cooler and we are? Well right now that is physically true. As we here in California in my home of Sun Valley California suffer through hottest heatwave on record, I’m sure Delaware is a lot cooler than we are. But I think they’re favorite ice cream flavor is also a cooler choice.
Compared to California I would agree with Delaware residents that mint chocolate chip ice cream is a great flavor. Yes, California appears to favor Neapolitan ice cream—though I still can’t figure out why—but Delaware goes for the minty, chocolatey goodness of mint chip ice cream.
There’s something about mint that is just so perfect in ice cream. Ice cream by its very nature, being frozen, is cool to the tongue. But the addition meant is an extra bit of coolness the just feels so right. It’s similar to a frozen grasshopper pie with its crème de menthe and Oreo cookie crust. The mint flavor takes you to new heights and the chocolate brings you back down to earth in the same bite.
Now, Frozen Jose Mier is not one to promote low fat or guilt free ice creams. No, in my opinion an ice cream worth the name has a higher fat content to give it that rich creamy texture. That’s why it’s important to start the proper ice cream base and make sure you’re using heavy cream.
