Gelato Sandwich



You remember when you'd tear open the paper wrapper of an ice cream sandwich, gobble down the sugary goodness, covering the tips of your fingers with a chocolate like material? Well, toss out that preconception and be ready for something totally new, different, and better.

This is a pair of spice cookies holding Flan gelato. The spice cookies are crisp and not at all soggy. They form a frame for the gelato, and the cookies' crunch contrasts well with the smooth cream of the gelato. The best aspect of the cookies are that they have a solid flavor without overpowering the Flan inside.

The Flan is good. Flan is basically caramel custard. So what you get is a good blend of caramel and cream. To me, Capogiro's flan is light which is probably more European in nature. I am more accustomed to a heavier flan that uses condensed milk instead of, well, normal milk. I had been hoping for an experience closer to that of Cioccolato Scuro where the flavor of the Flan would be potent and thick. After adjusting my expectations, however, I found that I did enjoy the sandwich quite a bit.

The Spice Cookie Flan Gelato sandwich is a must try for anyone looking for a neo-stalgic experience.
