Mmm, this was pretty tasty! The brownie wasn’t as good as the one from Marla Bakery, but all the flavors were great and I loved the peanut butter ice cream.

I liked the texture of these fries. They were a nice combination of fried edges and limp center. But I really didn’t like the flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a total pickle fanatic but these just tasted weird to me and they were too sour. I also though the choice of the smoked apple sauce didn’t work very well. I think all the hype is unfounded with these, but I’m just going by my own preference.

I was a bit surprised when this first snack came out, and I had to giggle a bit. I don’t think I’ve ever been served fresh, whole radishes as a dish before. I felt like a rabbit or something, lol! I guess it was good and the butter tasted great, but I guess I expected some type of preparation beside washing the radishes and placing them on a plate. 🙂
