I know right? Two Foodie Finds in one week, give or take a day or two...It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn't it? Actually, truth be told, I've been sitting on this one for a while now...for like 8 months or so...I know, horrible. But, I'm sharing now so that has to count for something, yes?
I opened my last box of these little guys today, and felt compelled to share. Normally I'm a coffee and chicory kinda girl, assuming I'm making coffee at home and not spending retarded amounts of money for it in the streets ( which happens quite frequently, the latter I mean). I spotted these at a food show some many months back and had half a case of sample product bestowed upon me a few months later. What is it, you ask? Well here's the big reveal: Jazzy Bird Frozen Espresso Shots.
I know what you are probably thinking: frozen espresso?? how good can that be? Hardly a foodie find. Indeed, you'd be wrong. I thought the very same thing. But the correct thought would be this: frozen espresso shots? genius! Perfect for say Dark Chocolate Espresso Brownies or Affagado--when your goal is something much greater than a beverage, and you have no interest in firing up, or more importantly, cleaning an espresso machine to make it yourself. This is for those days...you just pop it out of its little container, zap it in the microwave for 2 minutes, and viola! It's done. You're done, and the only thing to wash is the measuring cup you warmed it in. Ahh yes...genius.
By the by, they are also great as part of a Cappuccino or Cafe Americano, or any other fancy-pants coffee drink you want to whip up in your kitchen. They are only available by the case unless you live in, or around, the New Orleans metro area, which could be considered a minus, but just think of all the espresso-laden concoctions you can make with a whole case...and in all honesty, I tore through my half a case in record time.
