UnFancy Food Show and there was no way we were going to let that happen again. But we did want to check out the Fancy Food Show as well and since both of us have full time gigs, we can't hit FF during the week. Could we do both Fancy and UnFancy in a single Sunday?! Where there is a will there is a way...
Here are some of our highlights from each.
Our friends at Peanut Butter & Company are going to be launching new peanut butter baking mixes towards the end of the summer. The Peanut Butter Brownies were fudgy and delicious.
Vosges Chocolate now not only has a new Mo's Bacon Bar in Dark Chocolate but also a Mo's Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix. Breakfast perfection. It was hard to step away from the Vosges and before we did we had a change to try their Naga Ice Cream, a blend of coconut and curry. Amazing. Completely different from any ice cream I've ever tried.
Mari's Brownies? Luxurious and rich these brownies are a cut above. Their Caramel Sea Salt has the perfect balance of chewy caramel, fudgy chocolate and Cyprian sea salt.
Salvatore Brooklyn. Light, creamy, simple and delicious...
Nunu Chocolates Salt Caramels: totally natural, individually handmade, and completely delicious...
order them online. Lawman, are you reading this?
Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck. By late afternoon a number of the flavors were sold out.
Rishi. Can't wait to try it. To keep apprised their whereabouts follow them on twitter.
Probably one of the most refreshing things we had all day was the Raspberry Green Tea sweetened with Agave from the Green Pirate Juice Truck. Perfect for the hot and humid summer weather.
Here's a pic of their awesome bio-diesel run truck from earlier last weekend in Park Slope. If I had any room left I would have tried out one of their amazing sounding smoothies...
With empty wallets and full tummies Blondie and I ended our day as ever good summer day should end...ice cream cone and iced tea in hand walking home with a friend.
