Mud pie ice cream, anyone?
Today my daughter Allegra and I ventured out of the Valley - just a few miles from the Shelton line - to visit Sunny Daes, an ice cream shop in Trumbull.
I have been remiss this summer by not visiting ice cream shops and writing about our taste tests. Looking back it appears I wrote 16 posts about ice cream in 2012, and six more last year.
But as you can see I am trying to redeem myself with this post.
We chose to try Sunny Daes on this muggy afternoon on the recommendation of two friends. Both women told me a year ago to give it a whirl.
And we were not disappointed.
The homemade ice cream was rich. We both decided on Mud Pie, a decadently delicious coffee ice cream with fudge swirled into it. It was full of crushed chocolate cookie bits and walnuts too.
We decided we'll have to make a few return visits to try the homemade frozen yogurt, the soft-serve ice cream and the gelato. I imagine they are just as good. The store also sells shakes and ice cream cakes.
Sunny Daes has five locations in Fairfield County: two in Fairfield, one in Stamford, one in Westport, and the one we visited at 900 White Plains Road in Trumbull.
The chain doesn't appear to have a website, but you can learn more about it on its Facebook page.
