Your regular ice cream update

On a visit to London this week, we stopped by the Häagen-Dazs cafe in Leicester Square. The menu has been adorned with two new flavours:
  • Crème Brûlée.
  • Green Tea & Hibiscus.
Naturally, I tried both. Bearing in mind crème brûlée is one of my four favourite ingestions (the other three being ice cream, bacon and – of course – crisps), guess which one i preferred. That's right, the green tea. Crème Brûlée anything is never a patch on crème brûlée itself. And the green tea ice cream was delicate and creamy and exotic and fruity and nothing like I expected. Highly recommended. However, I'm afraid I can't show it to you, because due to idiotic company policy, I was prevented from taking a photo, even once (or possibly because) I said I wanted to blog it. Apparently Häagen-Dazs don't want positive publicity. (Or maybe they thought I was a dangerous unhinged person. Ahem.) Anyhow, seems they can make ice cream but not sense. So here's a photo of a photo of said green creamy substance. It does it no justice at all.
