The scenario: two flavors in one cup (or on one cone). The question: is it important to coordinate the flavors? That was the discussion between Sue and Bruce as we exchanged spoonfuls of our cup of lemon coconut topped with peanut butter and jelly. The lemon in the lemon coconut was gentle, evoking the light lemon flavor of lemon cake rather than the tart lemon of, say, lemonade. The jelly in the peanut butter and jelly was strawberry, a better choice than grape, even if it evokes the sandwich less accurately.
The flavor coordination issue presents itself in the border regions, when a single spoonful returns both flavors. Those border spoons or licks: should they be compatible? The peanut butter and the lemon certainly were not, but Sue wanted lemon coconut and Bruce wanted PB&J and they wanted to share one serving. The combo spoonfuls were strange but not unpleasant. Sue leans in the direction of coordination while Bruce enjoys the occasional discordant kick to the taste buds. What do you think?
It was a beautiful, slightly chilly Sunday evening in Delaware, less than an hour before closing time, and the place was hopping! We look for any excuse to detour to our favorite ice cream spot.1310 Little Baltimore Road Hockessin DE 19707 302-239-9847 Woodside Farm Creamery’s Website Woodside Farm Creamery on Facebook LAF review of Woodside Farm Creamery
