is a a flavor offered by the irrepressible Ben & Jerry's
ice cream (now part of ConGloMo
). It is, as its name suggests, a mixture of the flavors of these two fruits
- but what
a flavor! It is a dizzying, tangy ascension
s and sweets
that defies categorization. A hint of bitterness and sour
from the lime juuuuuuuust perfectly sets off the tropical gooey sweetness
of the mango
. It does a much better job than any other frozen dessert I've come across at capturing the complex flavor
. I have found this flavor to be the perfect piece-de-resistance
to cap off a wondrous session of the munchies
. Lots of chocolate
and other heavy flavors, ending up with this marvelously piquant palate
-cleanser. I urge you to run out and buy a pint now
if you've never tasted it. Especially if you enjoy fruit. Final note: This flavor is best pronounced as follows when stoned
to the gills: "Mango liiiiiiiiiiiiime
sorbet." Note the swooning
extension of the middle word.
Available at fine Store 24's and supermarkets everywhere, in the 'Food for Stoners' section.
Update: I have found this flavor on the (sob) Ben & Jerry's Graveyard of Flavors page. Please, write your congressman, write Ben & Jerry, and tell them you neeeeeeed Mango Liiiiiiime sorbet!
