I’ve always been a fan of mango flavoured ice cream. Most people claim that it’s because of my Filipino heritage that I love anything with mango in it. Maybe it’s true; mangoes are quite delightful to have. In any case, this scoop of mango ice cream came with a chip. Why would it?
There’s actually quite a logical answer: it’s because it adds texture. While good, ice cream by itself doesn’t provide much texture other than the soft, smooth, and creamy way it feels in one’s mouth. Adding a chip (or something crunchy for that matter) to provide a variety of textures can really add a whole new depth to a simple dessert like a scoop of ice cream. I mean, that’s the main reason one would have dessert too, right? It’s to have some variety over the savoury flavours had during the main course.
