Maple ice cream sandwich with bacon bits at Meat & Bread, Vancouver
Interesting concoction between two vanilla wafers we tried in Vancouver a couple months ago. The salty bacon bits are the perfect yin to the ice cream’s sweet yang. If you’re ever in Vancouver, try it!

Who needs truffle salt when you can sprinkle this low sodium, vegetarian, kosher salt over your French fries? All the flavor and none of the fat! How awesome is that?
