lucky again

You know, some days I feel like the luckiest gal in the universe. Today was one of them, cuz look what the UPS man brought:

A friend just started an organic ice cream company, and dudes, he sent me ice cream! He sells it through Manhattan Fruitier, I guess. Below those cute little samplers were these:

Yeah, when people talk about “going for a pint,” this is what I envision! These pints say Manhattan Glacier, but I think my friend’s company is called Three Bridges Ice Cream. You New Yorkers keep your eyes peeled for it!
Right now I am having the White Coffee little sampler, and it is so rich and smooth and creamy and delicious. Nice, true coffee flavor. I have a week to eat the two pints and all the little samplers. Do you think I will make it? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAAAA.

    Ooh, pomegranate sorbet. What I wouldn’t give to taste some of that.

    Post when you try the pomegranate sorbet. I love pomegranates, and I’m curious as to how they would taste as a sorbet.

    Manhattan Fruitier is the best. They’re more commercial than they used to be, but still excellent. When I had my son after 10 weeks of no fruit due to gestational diabetes, a friend sent to the hospital a Manhattan Fruitier basket crammed with apples. Many kinds of perfect small apples. Lady Apples, Fuji Apples, and I think even a Quince. I ate them all. xoxo Kay

    Pomegranate sorbet! I started salivating at the thought. Maybe my shop could be his Portland outlet.

  14. Wanda says:

    You lucky gal!
    Now I’ve to go look for a friend who works in an ice cream company or better still, a chocolate factory *drool*

  17. radish says:

    Yum, this looks delectable. You have great friends ;)

    Here’s the scoop on the ice cream: The brand Manhattan Glacier was created by Manhattan Fruitier. It is made in Brooklyn by a company named Three Bridges Ice Cream (which is basically a division of Manhattan Fruitier). That may be confusing, but the ice cream & sorbet are not – made fresh in small batches using NY State milk & cream, fresh seasonal fruit and other natural flavors.
    Favorite flavor by show of tongues is Banana Chocolate Lace. But Pomegranate Ice Cream (in development) may be a serious contender.
    If you’re in NYC, scoops of Manhattan Glacier are sold at Manhattan Fruitier (105 E 29 St in Manhattan) and pints will soon available in Gourmet Garage.
    If you walk to get the ice cream, the calories don’t count.
