Since 1982, Le Bac à Glaces has been churning all-natural, nothing-artificial-added sorbets and ice creams. They have a repertoire of 60 flavors, ranging from classic (chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut) to exotic (yuzu and guava sorbet, anyone?)
My current obsession is the pruneaux. The natural sugar in the prunes gives the ice cream amazing texture. Normally I’d get a cone to go, but yesterday was chilly, so I took a seat inside (it’s never to cold for ice cream!). I ordered the Coupe Caiman – two scoops of the prune and one of vanilla, with sweet saucy prunes and whipped cream. It was huge.
A little Armagnac would have hit the spot, but I wouldn’t want to overdo it. Oh, sure I would.
