I am really really loving exploring my new neighborhoods–Chicago’s Wicker Park and Ukranian Village. So the other morning, I did a little search on all the main Internet social outlets…what were the places by me that everyone was talking about? Black Dog Gelato was at the top of the list.

Whiskey. Bacon. Together. I can see this working. I didn’t make the jump though. You see, I was distracted by the Goat Cheese Cashew Caramel gelato. Yes, Goat Cheese Cashew Caramel.

Oh, and the Oreo mint.

Yes. Together. I couldn’t stop myself. I ordered both. Squished into one cup.

And you know what? That didn’t bother me. In fact, I kinda liked it. Because really, at the end of the day, these are some of my favorite flavors.

The orieo mint was super minty. And the goat cheese cashew caramel–really three of my all-time favorite flavors–it’s the type of combo that sticks with you for days afterwards and you keep thinking, “Was that really as good and as interesting as I thought it was?” I think it was. I’ll be back this weekend, I hope, to double-check.

The Verdict: Do it.
