All their ice-cream is made fresh downstairs.
They have traditional chocolate, vanilla, strawberry flavours, as well as the more interesting ones – Dime Bar Crunch, White Russian (which was alcoholic, obviously, and which I would have gone for if I wasn’t a teensy bit hungover), Ginger, etc.
I was instantly drawn to the Purity and Danger, which was vanilla with fudge brownie chunks.
They also had a few of Halloween-themed flavours, such as Vampire (which was a blood orange sorbet), Zombie and Pumpkin.
I was so excited that I ran around the shop taking pictures. I was also waiting for Katie to show up. Georgie was a little too hungover and couldn’t make it… More for us!
They do delicious baked goods as well.
As you can see.
But we both know I didn’t come here for a bagel, and my mind was made up. I went for the Purity & Danger, as well as the Golden Secret, which was vanilla ice-cream with nuggets of Crunchie Bar. The Purity & Danger was really good, the Golden Secret was amazing.
This lovely lady finally arrived.
I tucked into my ice-cream as she wondered what to order.
Of course, I shared. Hungover and vulnerable.
Also, how could you not to this face?
We corrected my ways and ordered a Brownie Sundae. It’s one scoop of ice-cream, hot chocolate fudge sauce, tons of whipped cream and either chopped nuts or chocolate sprinkles. We chose the Dime Bar Crunch as our ice-cream. It’s the kind of thing that being in the right frame of mind, I probably would have not gotten it, especially after my two scoops of ice-cream. But I was still half-asleep and in a strange new place, so that went out of the window. It must be all of this Oxford air.
But look how magnificent it is. It was a work of art.
The hot chocolate sauce with the whipped cream and ice-cream was incredible, going beautifully with the brownie. God, what a great decision.
It was so nice to spend time with this chick, and what better to do than share a bowl full of happiness and calories?
Probably not the best beach body decision. Especially since I felt like I had a bit too much sugar after and munched down an entire baguette.
