Caffe Panna PeCran Puff
CaffePanna's goal is to bring that same welcoming spirit and all-day accessibility to the heart of New York City, with an emphasis on delicious ice cream that marries elements of both Italian and American traditions.
PeCran Puff is labeled as "Chocolate ice cream with candied pecans, tangy cranberry swirl and house made cranberry marshmallow"
Caffe Panna found a way to take a basic chocolate flavor and really make it shine. The base is creamy, super-premium, and has a sweet but balanced elegant rich flavor. Due to the purity of the ingredients, it is a trifecta of milk chocolate, swiss, and dark chocolate.
The candied pecans provide a luscious, sugary, and buttery enhancement. While I am not the biggest fan of nuts in ice cream the cranberry swirl and house made marshmallow make this ideal to replicate a pecan pie with a cranberry compote. The tanginess of the cranberry is not over the top, but just enough to let the flavor shine. The marshmallow inclusion is just like Jersey Jam, where it pools its way around the experience. The further you dig the larger the swirl gets into thick globs.
For those who are huge fans of swirls and mix-ins you will rejoice. The size of the nuts were just right. Caffe Panna does a great chocolate base and finds a clever way to replicate a holiday dessert into ice cream
