If you’ve been on the internet in the last year, you must have seen the videos and pictures of cakes shaped and painted as ordinary objects. It takes a lot of skill and creativity to achieve that kind of perfection, both visually and taste-wise. One person who could produce a viral delicacy in this regard is Cynthia Wong.
Wong became the James Beard Award Semifinalist for Outstanding Pastry Chef six times, but she suffered from burnout. One night as she lay exhausted on the couch, she thought of making ice creams that looked like actual drumsticks as a joke. She decided to give it a try, not knowing that it would become a viral sensation, with people worldwide wanting to give it a try. With support from her partner, Wong launched her own company in 2018, Life Raft Treats. The company now delivers all over the country and has only become more popular since its initial release.
Like many others, we at Tasty Ice Cream couldn’t resist the call either and just had to give it a try for Not fried chicken ice cream review. Firstly, Amazing. That is the word anyone would use for this treat. The base of the ice cream was waffle flavored with a coating of white chocolate. It was then covered with a layer of salty cornflakes. Every bar looked exactly how you would expect a chicken drumstick to look, down to the smallest detail. The best part of the entire ice cream bar was the little bone made of chocolate in the middle.
The ice cream was thick, creamy, and soft, the cornflakes salty and crunchy, and the white chocolate smooth and sweet. The chocolate bone was crunchy and sweet. The combination of sweet, soft, crunch and salty was to die for, and we couldn’t help ordering a twenty-piece bucket. Did we mention the bucket? Because Wong has designed the dessert to look exactly how a fried chicken drumstick bucket would look, even the bucket itself. Wong is a pro at making sweet deserts look like non-dessert items, and she has outdone herself with this creation. She has also created an ice cream sandwich dessert that looks like an actual sandwich, and we recommend our dear readers to give that a try as well in our Not fried chicken ice cream review.
The ingredients for the ice cream bars are purchased from local farms to ensure that they are of the highest quality and are fresh. The eggs, milk, and other dairy products are all premium quality. Each bucket has nine or ten bars in total and costs close to a hundred dollars. It is a little on the expensive side, but believe us, readers, it is truly worth it. There are other limited-time or special offers, such as a large bucket with 20 bars.
Overall, the ice cream has received only positive reviews, and its demand has increased exponentially. We are all looking forward to what else the genius Wong will come up with and would love to include that as well, in our next Not fried chicken ice cream review.
