*NEW* Liquid Nitro Chocolate Cake Pops – $4.00
The first cake pop we tried was this plain Liquid Nitro Chocolate Cake Pop. Of the three we tried, this plain, non-embellished dessert gave us the best taste of the deliciously soft chocolate cake underneath. We agreed that the cake pop tasted its best when still cold from being freshly nitro-dipped, however the chocolatey richness remains good even as the dessert thaws out… if you can wait that long to eat it!
This second Liquid Nitro Chocolate Cake Pop was the same chocolate cake as the first, however mixed up by having been dipped in crushed Twix chocolate bars. From being dipped in the liquid nitro, the Twix crumbs became surprisingly soft, however still tasty, adding a different texture to the plain pop we tried above.
The third and final Liquid Nitro Chocolate Cake Pop we tried was this one, covered in crushed M&Ms candies. Unlike the Twix crumbs we reviewed above, the crushed M&Ms added a lovely, satisfying crunch to the cake pop, not to mention that satisfying pop of candy color. As all three cake pops featured the same filling, our reporters agreed that it was hard to pick a favorite. However, the choice of having it plain, with crushed Twix bars or crushed M&Ms candies means that guests can pick their personal preference among the three varieties.
*NEW* Frozen S’mores (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.50
This fun Frozen S’mores drink was a pleasant chocolate milk slushy, topped with mini marshmallows for that fun, s’mores look. This would make a great, refreshing option for children, as the adults take on the champagne offerings!
Moët & Chandon describes their Imperial Brut as having “the vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit,” “the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers,” and “the elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts).”
From Dom Pérignon: “Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.” “The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist.”
Gilbert & Gaillard says that the Brut Rosé has “expressive aromas of strawberry and very ripe wild strawberries. A full-bodied, structured, vinous palate which stays fresh. Length and character define this champagne.”
