I stopped by Bebe Zito's Malcolm Yards location this week to sample the small-batch shop's new Thanksgiving-themed ice creams.
What I ordered: Scoops of Hakuna Batata, a sweet potato and Chinese five spice ice cream, and Turkey and Waffles, which has a waffle base with "turkey streusel" mix-ins.
My review: 4/10, at best. Neither delivered on the Thanksgiving flavors.
- Hakuna Batata tasted overwhelmingly like cloves, while Turkey and Waffles was aggressively sweet, even for ice cream. It's as if someone dumped a cup of maple syrup over a scoop of vanilla.
- And, not a single bit of turkey streusel to be found.
Cost: $13.40 for two regular scoops in a cup, including the Malcolm Yards 18% hospitality surcharge. Parking was free.
Of note: Milkjam Creamery is also offering Thanksgiving-themed ice cream flavors this month, including Sour Cream Apple Pie and Pumpkin Dulce Crunch.
