"I think these cookie chunks may be too large. It's a bit hard to e—"
"NO, THAT IS INCORRECT, IT IS PERFECT, aren't you perfect? YEAH THESE CHUNKS ARE PERFECT."
I'm the crazy second person in this conversation, by the way. And the towering cup above is the thing of perfection: three kinds of cookies, chunkified, and mixed with vanilla bean soft serve. Dessert Club Chikalicious calls this sundae Cookies-n-Cream, but it's nothing like your typical cookies and cream-flavored frozen concoction. The cookie chunks aren't embedded in the soft serve so much as coated in soft serve. This dessert is an excuse to eat a cup of cookie chunks glued together by soft serve, basically.
AND IT IS SO GLORIOUS.
Let's go back to those cookies: The Situation, Situation Dark, and Chocolate Chip. The Situation is a kitchen sink-sort of cookie mixed with chocolate chips, corn chips, peanut butter chips, marshmallow, and pretzel. The Situation Dark has a chocolate cookie base mixed with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, toffee popcorn, and pretzel. Chocolate chip is ... chocolate chip. The cookies are light and crunchy in some parts, denser and chewier in others. Couple that with the creamy soft serve, it does all kinds of things in your mouth! All the things! ... A few things! Good things. And all this for $6.95.
I like this sundae so much that I've eaten it three times in a one-month period. The first time, Kathy introduced it to me, and we split it four ways with Kåre and Shann after we had eaten dinner. We just wanted a little sweet thing to end the night with. It's a gigantic portion; four ways is a reasonable way to go.
But the second time, I ate most of it by myself because the friends I had eaten dinner with weren't that hungry (someday I too will make sensible choices). It's a gigantic portion; mostly-one-way is not a reasonable way to go. My stomach felt a bit like this. But when the feeling of bloat went away, the craving returned.
Time the third, I split it with Nick. It's perhaps a smidge too much for two people who have just eaten dinner, but Nick's stomach is disturbingly malleable, so it worked out just fine [flashes a thumbs up]. Unlike the first two times, this time the powers that be put a paper plate under the cup. I don't recall it being so messy the other times, but maybe I did unknowingly leave behind plops of soft serve splat and the employees got sick of wiping that junk up. This time—perhaps because I knew the plate would catch the drippings or because the sundae got fatter—there was significant drippage. Paper plate = good idea (although makes for a slightly less appealing photo).
So grab a friend or three and let me know what you think of it. It's possible that I've oversold it, but hell, it's a cup full of cookies and soft serve, and that's pretty awesome no matter what.
