Little morsels of heaven, a nut filled delight, whatever be it called it is just not adequate to describe the rich taste it leaves on your taste buds.

I wish I get the opportunity to meet the brilliant guy who discovered the use of cocoa and when I do I will take a bow and thank him endlessly for one of the greatest discoveries on earth, rich and smooth chocolate. After vanilla, it is the world’s second most popular flavor and has been maintaining its popularity for over 100 years now.
This flavor became a tremendous hit in the 19th century and beyond. The chocolate flavor prepared from dried and powdered cocoa pods has many variations with different combinations and permutations that have become extremely famous through the ages.

Almond belongs to the nut family which has reached legendary status all over the world. It has a creamy lingering taste with the best ever texture one can imagine, but when combined with any ice cream and specifically chocolate, there is nothing in this world that can be compared with it. Absolutely nothing!
Imagine this, an ice cream bowl that has two round dollops of scoops of ice cream, which is generously covered with top quality fresh almond chips. Then you take the knife and carve through the ice cream and what you discover is nothing short of dreamy creamy chocolate ice cream breaking through the well covered almond part and getting splattered all over the bowl. Need I say anything more?
3. Chocolate Marshmallow:
Chocolate by itself is something that can make one excited and shout with joy. This when combined with marsh mallows creates sort of a ice cream paradise in your mouth. The creamy soft chunks of marsh mallows combined well with the creamy yet thick, smooth and delightful scoops of ice cream is like the only good thing that has happened to you in this world.
It is a different experience and feeling all together. It is sheer heavenly goodness in that one spoonful and we would love to have more of this, not wanting the experience to end.
