The Launch of the Summer Menu at Crumbs & Cream
Julia Child once said “A party without a cake is just a meeting”. I concur and would add that summer without ice cream is just not, well, summer! It’s one of the key ingredients to make any beach & sun day come alive. I was therefore more than happy to attend the recent launch of Crumbs & Cream’s new summer menu!
It was a lovely balmy day in Sea Point, and even though the hour was still quite early, no attendee had any objection to sampling some choice delights! First up was one of the new additions to the menu: a mini ‘crumb shake’, made with your choice of ice cream and cookies and topped with a dollop of hot pink whipped cream!
Next up was, a firm favourite, the churro cookie: a toothsome take on the more traditional churro, to be eaten on its own or in one of the delightful ice cream and cookie sandwich combinations! Other new items on the menu include new cookies like choc-chip, the granola cookie, and the red velvet cookie, as well as new ice cream flavours such as coconut, apple pie, and lemon meringue.
A favourite part of the launch was the opportunity to create your own ice cream sandwich. I opted for the proudly South African ‘milktart cookie’, along with ‘special ice cream’ topped with mini marshmallows. So tasty!
My advice would be to get to Crumbs & Cream sooner rather than later. The atmosphere is friendly and fun, the eats are all delightful, and there is no better way to start summer!
