Return Engagement: Toscanini’s

27 08 2008

After playing live on the radio last night with Concord Ballet Orchestra Players, two-thirds of the band ventured to nearby Central Square to get some celebratory scoops. Joe scored a Sweet Cream sundae with hot fudge, Ben got both the Chocolate and Banana Sorbets, Kyle went for Blueberry Lemon (that was the one I sampled), and I went with a Grapenut Raisin cone.

The Blueberry Lemon had a spicy aftertaste that I wasn’t in the mood for, so I chose the Grapenut scoop. There were vestiges of the cereal’s crunchiness, but the cone didn’t cause chomping audible to our neighbors. The raisins were very present but not overwhelmingly so, and the ice cream was a nice simple cream that let the fruit and cereal ride without being overwhelmed by spices or vanilla. A very nice close to a very good day.
