This name for Bubba Gump’s dessert cracks me up and I said it repeatedly before and throughout the meal, “I want that chocolate thing!” With a great view of the National Day fireworks, and celebrating a birthday, we were all in good spirits and filling up on the spread before us. But that didn’t stop me from remembering my core reason for being here. So when the dessert time came around I immediately stated what I wanted and it soon came along:
A chocolate flourless pudding with ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate sauce. The jar was overflowing and I didn’t hesitate to dig my spoon in. hmmm… it was rather disappointing! There wasn’t much pudding, and all my spoon fished out was the sauce, which seemed artificially thickened and flavourless. It wasn’t gluten free for sure. With deflated excitement, I poked around at the ice cream and sauce for a while and felt jipped.
