I admit it. I got caught up in the fad and went out to purchase the local and much talked about, Earnest Ice Cream. NatureGirl and I went to Woodland Smokehouse on Commercial Drive just to get our hands on these babies and to be honest, if we had known the price beforehand, we probably wouldn't have gotten it.
Overall, I think the reason why I am not impressed by this local gourmet ice-cream is because I had no inclination of how pricey it would be before I bought it, and the flavours that were available at Smokehouse were not strange or unique enough for me to feel like it's worth paying $11.50 for. As a self proclaimed adventurous eater, I think I would be far more likely to pay a little extra for a flavour I have never encountered before in an ice-cream like Blackberry Black Pepper or Blue Cheese & Fig. Maybe, just maybe, I will give them a second try when the actual location opens up on Fraser Street because they are bound to have more cool interesting flavours.
