- Bravo Gelato coffee and doughnuts gelato
I present to you exhibits A, B and C in the argument "In the great banquet of the world, the Western countries should be in charge of dessert."
Exhibit A is a scoop of Bravo Gelato's coffee-and-doughnuts gelato. It's made fresh, delightful on the tongue and uses real doughtnuts and coffee. A pleasure to eat.
Exhibit B (below, after the jump) is more problematic. It's a Thai dessert of sliced jackfruit and palm seed ... in milk. I get that it's healthier than sugary desserts. I understand that millions of people, whose opinions are totally valid, call it their favoritest treat ever.
- Jackfruit and palm seed dessert
And then there's Exhibit C (below), from the dreaded bean-based sweets family. In fact, this is basically just beans and rice, in a banana leaf. It was gluten-free, I believe, so that's a big plus. And I get that people make dessert with whatever is on hand, and that wheat flour and dairy products are not as plentiful in the Far East. I'm not saying it isn't inventive — but, as with art, you can appreciate the effort without actually liking the product.
- And for dessert, beans and rice.
There, I said it. Let he (or she) who likes the weird desserts cast the first stone.
