One of the best parts of flea marketing is the snacking — farm stands, diners and roadside pie shops all figure prominently. So imagine my happiness when I discovered that the ice cream stand at the Aberfoyle flea market sells a favourite flavour from my childhood, Tiger Tail. It is a weird combination of orange and licorice creams and I have been told that it is still sold today only to satisfy nostalgics like me, not because of the taste. I strongly disagree. This is one tasty concoction, a flavour for the ages as far as I am concerned. Check out the size of a cone at Aberfoyle, a pint on a cone, yet still I somehow managed to eat it all. Obviously, only great flavour could push me to eat that much cream at once.
And it seems both Chapman’s (Tiger Tail) and President’s Choice (Tiger Tail) agree that this is one tasty treat. Both have come out with new versions of the old favourite. So keep your eye out for a tub of this. Me, I am only going to indulge when I happen upon it, because to stock it in my freezer would be dangerous.
