It was -5 degrees Celcius on Friday, but the upside was that there was finally no line at iHalo Krunch, Toronto’s first charcoal ice cream place.
I felt it was sacrilegious to go there and not get at least partially black ice cream so I got the ube nut, which combines both the ube (purple) and black coconut ice cream. Another plus is that it looked nice for Instagram. I loved the flavour of ube, which is a popular yam-like ingredient in Filipino desserts.
The cone also has charcoal, and the very bottom was stuffed with marshmallow Fluff, and prevented the ice cream from dripping. I’m glad I didn’t have to line up for this, but it doesn’t disappoint either way!
