Red Chili Chocolate Gelato

At Ed's Real Scoop in the Beaches. Good stuff.

  1. Wow... thanks for the heads up! That sounds amazing.

    1. I'm gonna see if it tastes anything like the jalapeno chocolate fudge I got in Quebec City recently...

      1. How was the jalapeno chocolate fudge? I once picked up chili fudge (not chocolate) in the Okanagan and it was a bust.

        This gelato was very good, although the chili kick was a tad unrefined to begin with. Reminded me of Mexican chocolate icebox cookies a friend makes.

        1. Or try the amazing Mayan hot chocolate from Soma at the Distillery (arguably the best chocolatier in Toronto) made with ancho chiles, cinnamon, etc. The stuff is thick and decadent with a spicey undertone that gives a kick but does not overwhelm. Great for cold winter days.

          1. I liked it..sometimes things you don't expect to go together actually do.Something like Mexican mole sauce. Which brings to mind something I wonder about-who were the very first people that said pork chops and applesauce, lamb and mint sauce, and turkey and cranberry go together??
