Today’s Contender: Maggie Beer
Location: Barossa Valley, Australia
Flavor: Burnt Fig Honeycomb & Caramel
I don’t think any ice cream company here in the States would ever package such a complex and sophisticated flavor. Certainly we don’t have anything on the market with such high butterfat content. Yet this was available at my local grocer’s in Melbourne. And let me tell you it is gooooood! Super dense. Rich and creamy. Deep, deep flavors with just the right amount of sweetness. And of course, ooey gooey ribbons of goodness.
Maggie Beer is a famous food specialist in Australia’s Barossa Valley. She writes books, runs restaurants, teaches, has a farm shop and a line of products. If the ice cream is any indication, sign me up for more! I at least wish to try her other 5 ice cream flavors but this one is going to be hard to beat.
