Thanksgiving WIN - Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous

Hi All --

Moved to write about the dessert we picked up for last night's Thanksgiving dinner. A Pumpkin ice cream pie from Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous.

YUM! Great creamy ice cream that at first had us wondering (in a good way) -- is this pumpkin ice cream? The flavor is subtle and very interesting the way the flavors unfold. Spice, the fullness of the pumpkin and the cream -- and I cannot give enough credit to the fantastic ginger crumb crust that was underlying the whole pie.

Absolutely FANTASTIC. I highly recommend the holiday pies for those who don't want the hassle of preparing a dessert -- they also had a choice of a cheesecake (not sure if it was ice cream or not) but was told that it was a ginger-vanilla cheesecake, which makes my toes curl in anticipation for Christmas. :-P

  1. Do they have also have pumpkin ice cream?

    I've been by and liked the flavors I tried, but found the texture overly buttery (like Bi-Rite Creamery, for which I have the same complaint).

    Tasty for a few bites, but too rich to finish the whole scoop.

      Flavors change every day, but last time I was in there a week or two ago they did have a pumpkin ice cream. I think the first time I saw it I combined it with the Cardamom, which was fantastic as well.

      Funny, I don't particularly care for Bi-Rite while Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous (and Humphrey Slocombe, though it's further away) are very appealing to my palate.

        I'll definitely give it another try. It's a cool space.

        Be sure to check out Delise if you're ever down by the wharf (on Bay near Powell). Unusual flavors with great texture, and half are sorbets or frozen yogurt.
