I detected something smelly in the kitchen, so my nostrils went in search of the funk. I opened the freezer thinking maybe I’d find some rotten hyena giblets (husband sometimes cooks dinner), but look what I found instead.
It’s Klondike Dark Chocolate.
No, this ice cream does not stink, but I was sidetracked by it presence while searching for that smell. I didn’t buy this, people. I make it a point to ignore all things dark chocolate because I frackin’ LOATHE the bitter taste. It make my tastes buds reel and squeal and protest.
Husband brought it home and convinced me to try.
The ice cream part tastes like normal Klondike. But what about that dark chocolate shell?
It’s tolerable! It’s edible! My taste buds aren’t pissed off.
The package does not divulge how much Cacao is in the chocolate. I’m willing to bet it’s a very low percentage since the bitterness is minimal. This Fitness Magazine article explains the higher the Cacao percentage in dark chocolate, the healthier (and more bitter) it is. Nevertheless, it does indeed taste like dark chocolate – in a very tolerable level I can finally enjoy.
As for that funky smell in the kitchen? Someone obviously missed the garbage can while shooting hoops with a dirty diaper. I never claimed to be Michael Jordan anyway.
