Barratt Sherbet Fountain
Isn't that a disturbing photo? I found it to be less than mouthwatering to eat something that looked so illicit, like a night of debauchery. Here's the thing. It's supposed to be a licorice whip that you dip in powdered sugar-or maybe powdered milk-that has somehow been infused with effervescence and a super chemically creamsicle flavor. It's startling. And actually fizzy. Like a Lik M' Stik that's been ground into a fine powder after being left in one's bag for a few weeks (yeah I'm speaking from experience). The licorice was delicious and old-fashioned and I ate that right up. I couldn't get more than a few dips into the orange powder though.
