Chocolate was first cultivated by the Ancient Mayans, however the way they consumed it was not much like the sweet treats we know today. The Mayan's created a “chocolate elixir” beverage that was a sacred and powerful beverage served only to the royalty and the elite. They were also known to lightly sweeten their chocolate and mix it with herbs, spices and chili.
This one-thousand year old method for making hot chocolate has been our inspiration for our extremely dark, powerful and complex Mexican Hot Chocolate carabao ice cream. It's our own blend of dark chocolate spiked with Pepper and Chili and a delicious blend of aromatic vanilla, warm gentle cinnamon, hot cayenne pepper and fiery chile d’arbol.
Its schizophrenic ice cream....it’s very cold and creamy, but simultaneously spicy that will tickle the back of your throats. Perfect for those cold and rainy afternoons....or if you're just in the mood to test yourself if " you can stand the heat and not get out of the kitchen."
