Ice cream wars

After devouring the best ever chocolate sundaes at S. Luca, JP and I decided to see who could come up with the best ice cream dessert. We went to Sainsbury's and chose our toppings of excellent goodness.

JP's is called Death Wish and is compiled of Mackies of Scotland vanilla ice cream, crumbled mini double chocolate muffins, crushed Oreo cookies, and a toffee fudge sauce.

Mine is called Summer Burlesque, and features Mitchell's Luxury Crannachan ice cream, fresh strawberries, summer fruit sauce and chocolate covered shortbread biscuits.
We both rated each other's desserts 6/10, while I rated my own dessert 8/10 and JP rated Death Wish 9.5/10. "My belly hurts, so I know it was good," said JP, who thinks he is the winner. But I disagree, because his ice cream ego is inflated.

So you decide. Which dessert sounds/looks better? Don't make us kill each other.

Cheating bastard!

No doubt: The Summer Burlesque is the winner. After this very long and cold and dark winter we need something that freshens us up! The other one is much too heavy, but it will go when we come to november and the leaves are gone again...

I agree with Gerald. I like nice 'n' fruity ... and you did mention the words "chocolate" and "shortbread" in the same sentence. Bloody yum!

Um, I'll have some of each, please.

I think I shall go ahead and declare myself the victor. It is my blog, after all. Tee hee.

But you can't take a puppy on the plane! JP thinks I've cheated because I changed the name of my dessert at the last minute from the boring sounding strawberry delight. But thems the breaks. Poor manboy.
