Maggie Beer Burnt Fig, Honeycomb & Caramel Ice Cream*




What's your favourite icecream flavour? My fussy son loves chocolate (don't most kids!?) and occasionally he'll get super-adventurous and opt for Neapolitan. Hubby will eat any type of icecream and I don't judge him for that. I love citrus flavours, especially in gelato form! Give me a lemon and lime gelato tub and you won't hear a peep out of me (because I'll be too busy scoffing it lol). But the other type of icecream I love is Gourmet. The type where two or three posh ingredients feature in the title, and it costs a bit more than your standard container of Vanilla, but is totally worth it. Like for instance....

Burnt Fig, Honeycomb & Caramel Ice Cream*. Sounds a bit special, doesn't it?

"With near cult status, this ice cream combines the richness of burnished figs with smooth caramel, golden honeycomb and real cream." ~ Maggie Beer




My husband and I both loved this yummy dessert. As you can see from my photos, I fancied myself a food stylist and totes smashed up a Crunchie chocolate bar to add character. Because honeycomb! I could have gone the Violet Crumble route, but Woolies had Crunchies on special, so Crunchie it was. I feel like I'm typing Crunchie a lot. Anyhoo, when I dished up our icecream I poured the smashed Crunchie (haha, sorry) over the top and BY GOD was it fantastic. It added a 'Crunchie' (OMG, last one, so sorry) texture that totally complemented the smooth, creamy Burnt Fig ice cream. You can really taste the Burnt Fig, too. It's been taken to the perfect level of 'burnished'. How does one even do this? I don't know. But Maggie, does and that's all that matters. Did I mention that this ice cream is also available in stick format, as in smothered in milk chocolate, Magnum-style?




Here's a serving suggestion from the Maggie Beer site: Warm Brioche with Burnt Fig, Honeycomb & Caramel Ice Cream. I still don't understand what brioche is you guys, but it does sound delicious. Just so long as I can smash a Crunchie over it! (I am going to hell).

Maggie Beer ice cream is available at Woolworths. Please see here for further Stockist information.

  4. I don't eat figs so not entirely sure about this... plus I'm coeliac. However I got to taste salted caramel ice cream (well, salted caramel ANYTHING) recently as place near me stocks gluten-free ice cream in fabulous flavours. It was very exciting!

    1. Haha! I love beer but probably not in icecream form! I don't think I've eaten a fig by itself before, but it's awesome in icecream!
