    oh my gosh, that looks amazing!

  2. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I had this for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and my reaction was one of yesness. Well, my immediate reaction was one of surprise that this isn’t “Maggie Beer’s Burnt Fig, Honeycomb, Caramel and Verjuice Ice Cream”, but once I got over that I was in a happy place. A happy verjuice-free place.

    Your advice may be sound, but if the words are there begging to be written down, you just can’t deny them! Words need friends too.

    Holy crap that ice cream looks awesome! I might just have to try and make me some of that. One question: what exactly is meant by “honeycomb?” Is it some type of honey-based confection, or are we talking real live bee-made honeycomb?

    Re: “Do not unambiguously, absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt and with a hefty dose of teasing and crowing, utterly trounce your hosts at Boggle”…HI-larious!!!

    I have been so all over anything involving fig lately. Today for lunch, I made grilled cheese sandwiches with brie, blue cheese, apple slices and fig jam. (Totally copied from a meal at a local restaurant over the weekend.) And you know how I liked that Lulu’s black mission fig!

    Boggle, eh? How are you at Scrabble? After I interviewed a Scrabble club for an article, my game was transformed. Meaning: memorize two-, three-, four-letter words, and aim for density.

    serioulsy – I need that icecream NOW!

  7. Honey @ honeyandsoy

    Soy and I LOVE this ice-cream! We love Maggie Beer too, but didn’t love the price tag so much…. however, one spoonful and we got it. It will be one of those…. luxury items we spoil ourselves with occasionally, but you, my dear, definitely have the tastebuds for good ice-cream too! 😉

    I like this ice cream a lot… but much prefer Coles Honey, Fig and Ginger, both flavour wise and in terms of the ice cream itself/honey swirly bits/texture/etc. But I know you’re not a ginger fan, so this probably wouldn’t be super up your alley (but we could share and you could pick out the ginger pieces for me :D).
    Serendipity ice cream will always own my soul though. Loooove.

    LOVE Maggie Beer. Every single product she makes it worth it. Bar none!

  10. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    What a lovely house guest you are! I’ve been wanting to try this ice-cream for so long. What is wrong with me that I haven’t yet!? Must go to shops and get some – but will that then eat into my nut butter budget?….it is worth it, it seems 🙂

    P.S. I linked you in my blog today – I made your granola. I’m in love with it! Thank you xo

    That ice cream is worth the price, absolutely delish

  12. Emily

    This is THE best ice-cream! I actually was at a mate’s place for dinner and when she mentioned that this ice-cream was for dessert I let out an involuntary sigh. It is that good!

    And Maggie kills Ben & Jerry. I had a legitimate taste test between them as I impulse bought some Ben & Jerry but had some Maggie ice-cream at home. Maggie wins for the creaminess of the texture, the nuanced flavour and the fact that it isn’t just sweet, sweet, sweet.

    I am eternally grateful that my local supermarket doesn’t stock this and that as a result it is a *sometimes* food, not an always food!

    This is the icecream that’s absolutely necessary for the gal pal sleep overs (yep…, the type where whole seasons of Gilmore Girls are watched) doonas are dragged out into the living rooms & everyone has spoons…, you know you get it. The icecream should be sainted or knighted or whateverintheworld one does to drool worthy icecreams 🙂

  14. Louise

    I totally lurve this icecream. I thought it the only good one of her range. Truly outstanding. Sadly I have been robbed of it’s presence in the local supermarkets. It has just disappeared, I suspect it was too expensive for small town Coles, and I can only buy and eat so much.

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Now Wayfaring Frozen Delights does have a delightfully kitsch ring to it no? You had better register it before someone else does darling! 😉

  16. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh hang on I just realised that that sounded like a threat and that I was going to register it. Don’t worry it’s all yours!

  17. Libby

    Oh yum.

    Wait a sec, they sell them at… Coles?!

    Oh, I’m so there!

  18. Jacey

    I read your blog a lot (and comment occasionally as ‘C’ or ‘Jacey’.
    I just wanted to pop by and let you know that I’ve just started my own foo/cooking blog…..
    Hope you can pop by some time.

  19. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t be able to let my hosts win Boggle any more than I was able to let my PhD uncle beat me in Scrabble when I was 12. 23 points from placing a single ‘s’ on the board? Ohh yeah, that was me. I think it’s high time I got some ice cream for that one. 😛

  20. msihua

    You know.. i absolutely loved the little footnotes… do you by any chance read Terry Pratchett at all?

    I’ve also always wanted to eat something of Maggie Beer’s…

  21. Agnes

    Ahh crap. Is that why I never get invited back?* Shucks.

    (*That is a lie, I’ve never played Boggle before in my life. It must be my personality then.)

  22. Johanna GGG

    I’ve wondered how to eat that jam and now this seems the perfect way – wonder if they sell it at my local supermarket – I never look at the ice creams but I enjoy hearing about good icecream and thinking that as soon as it gets really cold that will be dessert

  23. whisperinggums

    And, did you, perchance, say how you on your piddly PhD budget came by said ice-cream? (Oh, and I like how you didn’t name your blog opponents thereby allowing them to save face. Surely that would get an invite back, you being so tactful ‘n all)

  24. gemma

    youve made me want icecream.
