Let’s all pretend that AC/DC’s song of the same title is playing right now. What an epic song, like so freaking epic, every time I play it, I feel like a badass who should be wearing a leather jacket or something. Instead, I am wearing an oversized sweater talking about black ice cream in a black cone.
Onto the last part to this three-part series! Everything comes better in a trio right? I mean the Jonas Brothers; Harry, Hermione and Ron; and Lizzie, Gordo and Miranda? I mean come on… I don’t think I’m wrong. But this last post is one dedicated to pop culture, it is me feeding into the latest craze: Charcoal Ice Cream.
Thanks to íHalo Krunch, Toronto got some charcoal freaking ice cream for their citizens. It’s located on 915 Queen St W, it’s literally right in front of Trinity Bellwoods Park. Me and my cousin just walked write down Queen Street, but you can take the 501L street car (or I think it’s a replacement bus) down.
In regards to lineups, we were extremely lucky! The line up wasn’t too horrendous, and we probably got our cones 10 minutes after arriving. Besides, waiting in line isn’t so bad, when there’s ice cream at the end of it!
Anyways, I had a lot of my friends asked me how it tasted, and it tasted really great actually! Against popular belief, the flavour was actually coconut. My cousin ordered a twist, that was half charcoal and half ube (which is this sweet purple yam), they had other flavours and some gelato even. But let’s be real, I went there for one reason and that was to get some charcoal ice cream.
I would say the food was 4.5/5 (am I allowed to be giving decimals?). Even though my cone didn’t fall apart, my cousin’s did and it went all over the place. The aesthetic I’d probably give it like a 3/5? I mean it’s a tiny space, and people are just there to get in, pay, get their cones and leave. There was a back space for people to chill which is thoughtful and they kept it clean and organized, but there really isn’t much you can do?
There you have it, a grand total of what 7.5/10? So a little bit above average? Does it even matter? The real question is: What is the next trend? And when will that be coming to Toronto? Until then, pceeazy and I’ll see you tomorrow or something.
