    L’Artisan des Glaces, Artisan Ice Cream & Sorbet, just opened in the France Pavilion at Epcot.

    The new shop is a beauty, with glass shelves to showcase hand-painted vintage milk cans that Jerome Bocuse found on travels through France. And the colorful ice cream flavors are works of art created right there all day long in the true French tradition (milk, sugar, cream, eggs and fruit) and served at the perfect temperature to bring out the true flavors. The egg yolks create a dense, silky ice cream that’s completely different than the American or Italian versions.

    Weistroffer says there are literally hundreds of flavor combos if you mix and match with a shot of liqueur. Ice cream flavors include classic chocolate and vanilla, mint chocolate made with fresh mint, pistachio, hazelnut, caramel fleur de sel, cherry, coconut-white chocolate, coffee and profiterole. Pastry Chef Olivier Saintemarie bakes crunchy mini-profiteroles, dips them in dark chocolate and mixes into vanilla ice cream, with some more chocolate sauce – this one you must try.

    Sorbets are strawberry, mango, melon, lemon, pomegranate and mixed berry. The frozen treats will be available by the scoop in cups or cones – and for grown-ups, there’s a double scoop served in a martini glass with a shot of Grand Marnier, whipped cream-flavored vodka or rum from Martinique.

    Cost is:
    • 1 Scoop - $3.99
    • 2 Scoops - $6.10
    • Add ligueur - $11.50

    A single scoop is one snack entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.

    I'm really looking forward to trying this out :D

    They do look delicious. I hope that the one scoop cone is a snack credit. :)

    $11.50 for an ice cream with a touch of Liqueur. :surrender: I wonder if that is one scoop or two.
