Before I had kids, one of the traditions I was looking forward to having with them is having movie nights and eating ice cream, preferably with hot fudge or caramel sauce or other yummy toppings on it, while watching the movie.
That image came to a screeching halt when I found out Cake can’t eat ice cream. I tried giving him some So Delicious ice cream when he just turned 2 and he didn’t really like it. I couldn’t find any hot fudge topping for him, and most of the fun toppings like m&ms have milk in them. So even if he liked it, there wouldn’t be a ‘sundae’ or yummy toppings.
Lately, though, Cake has been really into sorbet, mostly because Allergy Dad brings him out for it about once a week. Cake started asking about ice cream so I decided to try it again. We went to a different Whole Foods today which had an ENTIRE plus some freezer door area full of milk-free ice creams. Our normal Whole Foods has about 3 shelves of milk free ice cream, so there were a lot more options for flavors and brands at the one we went to today. Cake picked out So Delicious vanilla ice cream (even though they have that at our regular Whole Foods, and he always says, “no, thanks” when I ask him if he wants any) and I picked out NadaMoo mint chocolate chip. I also found……milk free hot fudge topping! It’s from a local place in Santa Cruz which is nearby.
We ate it after lunch. Cake’s review is,”yeah, sure, it’s good! Let’s have some later!” I agree! We may be traveling an extra 20 minutes to this Whole Foods in the future so we can try all the different flavors.
