An adventure in Rockport: Chocolate Chip Ice Cream at The Ice Cream Store in Rockport, MA. [An adventure in Rockport] [My instagram]
The cone begins to drip as the sun melts away over the bay, and it has the icy sweet taste of a perfectly enjoyable afternoon. Chocolate chip ice cream has the hints of a childhood watching my mother taking her first steps in baking as a successful batch of chocolate chip cookies would break to reveal dark liquid chocolate gold within, yet the cold sweetness is always too exciting for me to categorize under that American term “comfort food”. Yet this ice cream is distinctly American - creamy and rich - and only faintly reminds me of the icy sticks of fruit flavoured Bolan Ice Cream I have in Thailand.
