A Fudge Filled Surprise – Foodgasmic Tales From The Road

by Tony · 10 comments

Best ice cream bar ever!

Every weekend we write about the single greatest thing we ate in the past week. With all of our travels, it is almost always easy to pick something unique and interesting.

But when we decided to spend a quiet month detoxing (from all of the delicious Umbrian meat, cheese, and wine) on the coast of Croatia, I was worried that we would not be able to find that one spectacular food item to share.

I was wrong. Terribly wrong.

No matter how healthy our meals were in Croatia, we would always finish the night with a little slice of dark chocolate and a tiny glass of red wine.

Gotta get me those anti-oxidants!

But after two weeks of detoxing, we needed a truly delicious and indulgent after-dinner treat.

And Drasnice, a tiny town about one hour south of Split with only 200 locals, delivered in a big way.

Who would have thought that our favorite ice cream bar of all time would be found in Croatia?

Sometimes, you just need the simple stuff. Am I right?

Going back to my rule that everything tastes better by the beach, this ice cream bar was other-worldly and made us both re-think our addiction to Ben & Jerry’s.

Delicious fudgy ice cream bar in CroatiaThe King Truffles ice cream bar has a fudgy center, surrounded by a thin layer of chocolate ice cream, surrounded by a thick layer of vanilla ice cream, and all of that coated with a hard chocolate and almond shell.

Try to top that… I challenge you!

Even though this hedonistic delight beckoned us after every dinner, we stayed strong and limited ourselves to 2-3 times per week. We’re not total pigs…

So what can you learn from this?

  1. We love our chocolate.
  2. We seriously, like no really we do, love our chocolate.
  3. You never know what you will find in your travels, but always be open to a surprise.

It is slightly sick that I will be dreaming about this Croatian ice cream bar years from now, but I don’t care.

It really was that good. You’ll just have to trust me, unless you’re headed to Croatia anytime soon to test it yourself!

Your turn: Have you ever eaten a local junk food item to be surprised by how much you loved it? What was it and where?

My daily go to in Thailand is Mango Sticky Rice and all of the delicious Thai desserts – we leave for Africa next week and am already having withdrawal!

Great recommendation, Caroline!

This is the third time someone has gone out of their way to rave about the Sticky Rice in Thailand… I cannot wait until we are there… only a few more months! At least your Sticky Rice craving is exotic… our ice cream bar sounds so lame!

Better than Magnum’s?!

Mike… Shockingly yes! Hard to believe, I know.

If the bullet from a Magnum is killing you, beware of the BIG GUN of King Truffles.
Should you ever have to stand in front of a firing squad, ask them to kill you with that gun !
But serious folks, as I live in the land where they sell this frozen dope, it’s true !
And should that be the only truth, hell no, as every time when I drive down from our hidden valley to go shopping, on my way back my hands are sticky :-)
Not only the King does it, on each and every street here there is at least one dealer.
Home made, original, addictive frozen dope !
Long live the King !

Always love recommendations, Nedcro… Always!

We actually ate a King Truffles once and thought it was incredible. The only problem? Almost every place we visited only sold Magnum! I would love to do a taste test of magnum vs king truffle… game on!

Best comment ever.

More of a savory girl myself but I am intrigued by this brownie like center

Tony June 4, 2012 at 4:18 pm

This was the whole key… delicious ice cream bar? Yes. But it is the Fudge filled center that really elevates it into the pantheon of premade desserts.
