4:00pm "1000 year old" ice cream sandwich

11-11 007
Heading back to the subway, I remembered that I had intended to pick one of these up after our lunch at Xie Xie. It has been taunting us via the food blogesphere, and we've been dying to give it a try. And good is was. Great, even. Addictive and heavenly, in fact! This is NOT an overrated dessert. It's sweet, salty, creamy and crunchy. What more could you ask for in a dessert? In addition, it is such a clever play on the real thing. We are in love!

I'm glad it tastes good because it really looks gross.

m: you must go! it's delicious

c: definitely don't let the muddy green coloring get to you, close your eyes and it's caramel heaven

ud: i think it's only meant to look like 1000yr egg, it definitely tastes like a vanilla ice cream sandwich with gooey caramel center.

Thanks for clearing up what that filling is because I had no idea what flavor something such an off-putting color would be.
