Flight of Ice Cream

Have you ever had a flight of wine? A flight is a small sampling of wine or liquor for the purpose of comparison. I had my first ice cream flight at Mount Desert Island Ice Cream! I chose an all-white flight:
  • Kahlua White Chocolate
  • Sherry Raisin
  • Ginger
  • Coconut
Each flavor was better than the last. If you are planning an adventure to Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park, you must schedule some ice cream time.

On that note, you can skip the "Lobster Ice Cream" (yes, it is true) at Ben & Bill's Chocolate Emporium. I "took one for the team" and tried a sample on your behalf. All I can say is, you guys owe me big! I tried to erase the taste by having a scoop of their "Pecan Pie" ice cream - vanilla ice cream studded with chunks of flaky crust and sticky sweet pecans. It worked. Yum.

Mmm...I had the Carmelized Pear (delish), Ginger, Cookies & Cream (what can I say - it's my fave), and Blueberry Basil sorbet. Seriously, whoever thought of a flight of ICE CREAM was a genius!
