Just in time for summer, Wafels & Dinges, one of our favorite street vendors and winner of the 2009 Vendy Award for Best Dessert, is introducing high quality, gourmet ice cream flavors with a Belgian flair created by Benoit Gerin at Mont Blanc Desserts (formerly of Jean Georges).
The (now five) flavors, sold exclusively by Wafels & Dinges, are:
- Belgian Madness
- Flamboyant Framboise
- Choc-Claude Van Damme
- Tahitian Vanilla
Click through for descriptions of each flavor, some of which are made with Belgian beer!
BELGIAN MADNESS – The combination of Hoegaarden, a popular Belgian white beer, and honey makes this an absolute summer treat. Its refreshing taste has touches of citrus and lemon.
FLAMBOYANT FRAMBOISE – Lindemans Framboise, a Belgian raspberry beer, gives this new ice cream flavor a deliciously fruity taste.
SPECULOOS ICE CREAM – Speculoos is a Wafels & Dinges staple. The iconic gingerbread cookie and vanilla spread now is available as an ice cream treat perfect for hot summer days.
CHOC-CLAUDE VAN DAMME – Just like Belgium’s most famous action star, this dark Belgian chocolate ice cream kicks butt! Choc-Claude Van Damme’s main ingredient is loads and loads of dark Belgian chocolate — making it richer, darker, and more muscular than any other chocolate ice cream.
TAHITIAN VANILLA – W&D will still keep their staple Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream from Benoit available at all times.
