Takeout Tuesday - Crumbl Cookies' Pink Velvet Cookie


 

Pretty in pink! I was very happy I got to try out the Pink Velvet cookie from Crumbl Cookies when it was available a few weeks ago, and it was as delicious as it was pretty!  The pink cake batter cookie is topped with plenty of vanilla cream cheese frosting and even more pink cake batter cookie crumbs.  I hope they bring this one back again - I love the bright pink color, so unique!

Takeout Tuesday - Bangkok Garden Rockville



Just look at all that crab in the crab fried rice, yum!  I have been getting takeout from Bangkok Garden Rockville a number of times, and each dish has been delicious, with generous portions to keep enjoying at home.  Two of my favorites are the crab fried rice and pad see ew above, and I have ordered both of these dishes more than others in the past year.  They have a good mix of menu items, many of which are "street food" style and unique from other local Thai restaurants, which I highly recommend checking out as well!

Takeout Tuesday - Dolcezza's Tramontana Gelato


I noticed this Tramontana flavor of Dolcezza gelato at Whole Foods about 2 months ago and had to pick one up.  This new flavor consists of "sweet cream gelato with ribbons of dulce de leche folded together with dark chocolate pearls".  Yes please!

My favorite part of this gelato flavor has to be the dark chocolate pearls mixed throughout the container - such a nice crunch and chocolate flavor.  I always like when there's little crunchy bits to ice cream for an extra treat. But of course the thick dulce de leche is plentiful too, and so delicious without being cloying.  I definitely recommend picking this flavor up if you're in the market for a new flavor of gelato!

Takeout Tuesday - Crumbl Cookie's Cookies and Cream Cookie







As someone that is a huge Oreo/cookies and cream fan, this was a sure thing when I saw it pop up on Crumbl Cookie's weekly menu haha!  This Cookies and Cream cookie was packed with Oreo chunks inside the cookie, and then topped with even more Oreo crumbles and a cream drizzle on top.  This has a ton of texture which I like, and was perfect with some iced coffee.  I really hope they bring this flavor back soon - it's so delicious and anyone that's a fan of Oreos would love this one!

Takeout Tuesday - Carmen's Italian Ice Mango Ice


Look at that perfect scoop on top, yum!  I've talked about the other offerings at Carmen's Italian Ice before but their Mango ice is definitely my top pick by far.  I love how smooth the ice is and the strong mango flavor - even a little cup can pack a big punch.  I know a lot of people love the layered Gelati (ice + custard) which is a great option when you want a little bit of both, but I'm a purist and keep those separate whenever I order them - so delicious either way!   

Since their Rockville location is closer to my office I haven't been able to stop by as often, but I have been over there a few times recently.  With the unofficial start of summer this past weekend, I'll be sure to hit up Carmen's more often!
