When you live your life moving from country to country, the longer you’re nomadic and the more places you go, you start to forget which place has which things and which place doesn’t. So it was in the interest of pure scientific research that I felt the need to buy one of these new Chocolate Disc Cornettos, because I honestly can’t remember whether we had Cornetto in the United States or not. They have them in England, certainly, and all over Europe and the Middle East, but it’s been so long since I’ve bought ice cream in the US that the only thing I recall is that I loved Blue Bell (and those of you who aren’t from Texas won’t have a clue what I’m on about with that).
In any case, for those of you who haven’t seen a Cornetto before, for whatever reason, this new Chocolate Disc variety is a fine specimen indeed. On top is the chocolate disc (natch), which has some kind of nut pieces embedded in it. Below that is chocolate chip ice cream with a thick rope of caramel running straight through the middle from top to bottom. The whole thing sits inside a chocolate sugar cone, and inside the bottom of the cone is a solid inch of chocolate, which serves the additional purpose of blocking the ice cream from dripping out. All in all it’s a master piece of engineering. I only bought it because I felt it was my duty to report it to the masses, just in case you hadn’t seen one before.
