Bindi dessert company started as a bakery in Milan in 1946. Now, it sells delicious dessert creations to restaurants. Recently, I was able to snag one of their glass collection–coppa spagnola. The Web site says it’s vanilla and amarena cherry gelato swirled with amarena cherries and syrup, but when I tasted it, I thought it was fabulously creamy whipped cream. Indeed, the label on the dessert I had said it was frozen cream swirled with black cherry sauce and topped with black cherries. I had never had their desserts before, and this was a great introduction. If you eat it at a restaurant, I guess the restaurant keeps the glass, but I found this at a grocery store, so I was able to keep the glass.
If you’re in the mood for an ice cream sundae, Big Daddy’s has a few great options. Big Daddy’s is a fun diner that pays tribute to pop culture in the last 50 years with pictures on the wall and items on the menu. My friend and I got Strawberry Fields Forever–cheesecake with vanilla ice cream, strawberry topping and whipped cream–and The “Caramel” Apple–apple pie with vanilla ice cream, hot caramel sauce and whipped cream.
