Review: Candied Peanuts with Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream at Epcot’s L’Artisan des Glaces

They’ve done it again, my friends!

We’re back at L’Artisan des Glaces to check out their newest flavor of house-made ice cream.

Even the name is quite a mouthful (almost as much as the Cinnamon, Caramelized Apple & Crumble Crunch), but we think you’ll find it’s worth taking the time to place your order ;) .

So, remember this name: because it’s time to try some Candied Peanuts with Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream!

First thing’s first, though. Let’s head into this lovely little ice cream shop in Epcot’s France Pavilion…

More seasonal creations out of of L’Artisan des Glaces in Epcot’s France!

You know the drill… just think of the Pumpkin SpicePeppermint, and Strawberries and Cream Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches (not to mention the red, white, and blue version of the Vanilla Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich that makes its way around in time for Bastille Day in July) that ring in the flavors — and even colors — of the corresponding holiday or season.

And with (technically) two months of summer left, it’s a great time to enjoy the new Peaches & Cream Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich that just hit the scene.

Housemade Vanilla Ice Cream tucked into a peach macaron…
