Clinton Hall has three locations in New York City, and they're all featuring this gigantic sundae for the holidays. We were lucky enough to get to taste it.
It's called the "Apple of My IPA," and it's been flying out the door all season. The idea started with the executive chef of Clinton Hall, Darryl Harmon, who loves to get experimental with his menu. He sent the folks at Tipsy Scoop some of the beer garden's house-brewed IPA, called Clinton Hall IPA. Tipsy Scoop added some apples to it and made a delicious beer-infused ice cream.
Once Tipsy Scoop sent the ice cream back, it was smushed between three fluffy Belgian waffles, two plain and one red velvet. Then, it was topped with salted caramel sauce, holiday caramel corn, caramel apple taffy, whipped cream, candy apple rings, and a whole candy apple.
In addition to this holiday specialty creation, Clinton Hall has three permanent "WTF Waffles" on their menu year-round: Red Velvet, S'Mores, and Carnival. The latter actually comes with cotton candy, and they're all even crazier-looking than you're imagining. Clinton Hall absolutely does not skimp out on toppings, so make sure you bring your appetite.
Their waffles are intended for sharing, but they're so delicious that you might be tempted to eat one entirely by yourself. We don't even want to start thinking about how many calories that would be, though! And if you do end up finishing the whole thing, you're probably going to feel a little tipsy, thanks to the six generous scoops of boozy ice cream.
If you miss out on your chance to try the "Apple of My IPA" sundae, don't worry. Clinton Hall creates special seasonal sundaes all year long, and we can't wait until they release their next one!
And speaking of ice cream...
When it comes to sundaes, you really can't go wrong. All ice cream toppings are pretty much delicious. But even so, there has to be a best topping and a worst topping. That's just how things work in the world. So with that in mind, we went through 13 of the most popular ice cream toppings out there and ranked them accordingly. How did we do?
Okay, the word "dessert" calls to mind something delicious, but let's face the truth. While a lot of desserts are perfect, some of them are flat-out gross. There are clear rights and wrongs when it comes to dessert, so take the quiz and find out how your taste buds stack up!
We've invented a way to determine exactly how many kids you'll have, and it's based on your choice of ice cream. It's a simple process, really. We'll present you with two different images of ice cream. You'll pick one of them. Just go with your gut instinct and choose the ice cream that you'd rather eat. And at the end of the quiz, we'll reveal how many kids await you in your future.
