Saturday, October 30, is the last day of the 2011 Hansen's SnoBliz season. The Halloween menu is fab. Here is my (half-eaten) Corpse Bride: wedding cake snowball with strawberry sauce, whipped cream and posdered milk. Ashley Hansen says that while the powdered milk is great for the Halloween Ick factor, it's also a traditional snowball topping in Costa Rica. It took a bit of getting used to (a bite or two) but it's actually quite nice. Almost makes you feel like you are eating dry cake batter mix from the box. Strange but but not at all awful.
If I can get back by Saturday, I'm going to have the Murder On The Orient Express (cream of coffee with cardamom), now that the temperature is dropping. Even though it's snow, I still think of cream of coffee as a cool weather flavor. Can't help it.
