This is the first in a series of reviews focusing on local sweet makers.
I discovered this frozen treat just in time for warm summer nights in need of dessert. Three New Yorkers got together to create Chozen, a Kosher, all natural ice cream inspired by traditional Jewish baked goods. Chozen features enticing flavors including Coconut Macaroon and Apples and Honey. You can find them in Whole Foods, Zabars, and these other local outlets.
Matzoh Crunch is the first Chozen ice cream I tried, and it was a great start. The vanilla base is rich but not eggy. Crumbles of matzoh covered with toffee and chocolate is mixed throughout. The matzoh was still crunchy and the toffee was rich and buttery. Here is what it looks like.
Be careful once you start eating this- it is hard to stop!
