Maple Bacon Ice Cream Is A ‘Thing’ At The Ice Cream Barn
Yesterday on my way home from work, I decided to stop for ice cream at The Ice Cream Barn in Swansea. It's on the way, which is dangerous, cause I feel the urge to stop there WAY too frequently.
It was such a beautiful day yesterday, I love going there to not only get ice cream, but then I sit and watch the cows across the street, sometimes I even go over and try to pet them. I am a creature of habit of course, and every single time I get the same kind of ice cream, coffee oreo. If coffee oreo isn't an option, then I get the next best thing, plain old coffee.
However, yesterday I told myself 'I'm going to switch it up today', which is what I always say but never follow through...until I actually did. When I walked in, I looked at the menu and saw 'maple bacon' as a flavor and for whatever reason was compelled to try it. I'm not even a bacon eater, I love pigs too much to eat them, but this intrigued me. I tried a sample and it was simply amazing, I had to order it!
I asked the girl at the counter if it was in fact real bacon and she said yes and explained that they cut it up into tiny pieces and soaked it in maple before putting it in the maple ice cream. If that sounds heavenly, that's because it is. I sat in my car eating my maple bacon ice cream all by myself and enjoyed every single second of it. Too bad it's only a "Limited Edition" flavor...because soon I'll have to go back to my old favorite, coffee oreo, but that's ok.
