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

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.
