Duthy Street Deli, Iced Chocolate
Merkel returned to the Duthy Street Deli to try the iced chocolate. It came in a tall glass with a scoop of vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate powder. The look was quite spectacular with brown and white patterns showing through the clear glass. A good iced chocolate requires a straw, a spoon and drinking from the glass to consume and this required all three. Most of the chocolate flavour came from a rich mousse-flavoured chocolate syrup that drenched the sides and bottom of the glass. This did not mix easily with the cold milk so parts of the drink tasted like unflavoured milk. It looked good though and it would have been a shame to stir it too early. The cost of the iced chocolate was $4.50.
