Coldest Day of the Year - Time for Gelato!

They don't really call it gelato though; they call it artisan ice cream but man it looks like gelato. It tastes like gelato and it has the funky flavors you sometimes see in the better gelato places. Coco Pazzo from the Slow Travel Talk forums, recommended to me to visit the Bent Spoon in Princeton if I were ever in the area to enjoy some of their "artisanal ice cream." We happened to be there yesterday while Sammi had a youth group function at Red, Blue, Green.

Have to say, even if we hadn't had to be there, worth the trip, worth braving the icy weather (high in the mid 20s), worth the price ($3.50 for a small). I enjoyed Sea Salt Caramel Vanilla and NJ Honey and Hazelnut yesterday (yes, they use local ingredients whenever possible) and both flavors were fabulous. They mention other flavors on their website, like bourbon pumpkin, brown sugar & clove and pear prosecco, which sound amazing. Didn't finish though because I knew we were heading out to lunch (another entry), while we waited for Sammi, and I knew we were going out to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner (to celebrate Chris's birthday, another entry), but I had to taste it. Yum! I will be back.

Oh, and they also have a fancy bakery - with some amazing looking cookies and cupcakes (next time I need to take some pictures). It's a small place though, like four tiny tables inside, so consider that if it's raining - might be best to wait until a day when you're sure you can sit outside or it won't be as crowded inside (like a 20+ degree day).

[Sea Salt Caramel Vanilla]
You're killing me! I finally found a local (Saratoga) chocolatier that makes sea salt and chocolate caramels ... hmm. Maybe that's not such a good thing! Nah. ;)


Hmm...maybe if I have time, I can run down there Friday morning and pick up some for Marian's Friday night. :)

Well ... if you must.
