We are up to our 20th challenge, which shows just how far away from weekly they have been (I have been in Brunei for 87 weeks, if my maths is correct). I probably should have aimed for monthly from the start, but I am actually fairly happy with occasionally, even if it doesn’t match my initial promise.
This particular challenge has been a long time in the making. We had the idea right near the start, but didn’t want it to be too close to the Yam and Corn Icecream or the Cheese Cake. That obviously isn’t a problem now! We bought the ice cream before Baby Engineer was born. Then we tasted it and took photos when she was just a little squish (probably about three weeks old). Now I am finally writing about it when she is three months and three weeks old!
So, the question is… what is Cheese Icecream really like?
To be honest, I don’t even totally remember. It wasn’t as creamy or as sweet as yam or sweet corn. It tasted a little bit like cheese, but not overpoweringly so.
We definitely didn’t like it, or go back for seconds. But as with most things, it wasn’t spit-it-out disgusting or anything. The pictures suggest that I wasn’t a huge fan. But it definitely was more palatable than the Cheese Cake.
The biggest question we were left with at the end was “Why?” Why would you have cheese ice cream when you could have chocolate or vanilla or other wonderful flavours? Who decided this was something the world needed? What do you pair it with? I have been known to have a big chunk of cheddar with my apple pie, so maybe I should have tried it with that.
At the end of the day, I am just not convinced that it fills a gap for me. I like cheese. I like Ice Cream. I see no need to combine the two!
