A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

commonwealthChef Nookie Postal was at the New England Food Expo and ever since then, he has been all over my radar. Commonwealth, located in Kendall Square, is a market – restaurant hybrid. You can go in for a family style meal and pick up a gallon of milk on your way out. They sell fresh produce, jams, cheese and my favorite, ice cream. Check out his Kickstarter video here.  I saw Chef Nookie post the labels of his new flavors on Instagram and I was instantly hooked (and his proper breakdown of a peep photo had me laughing!) So I run down after work to Cambridge (they have validated parking!) and picked up 4 pints. Check out the tweet:


Follow Chef Nookie on Twitter – he’s pretty amusing.

IMG_4444There were all kinds of textures going on here, and I think I got all of the black and purple jelly beans in my pint, but the Cadbury eggs really made this ice cream.

IMG_4440I love the name.

IMG_4450So this one had more cake than ice cream, which I liked. The big chunks of cream cheese were a little weird for me, but that didn’t stop me and my co-workers from devouring this pint.

IMG_4441Of course I had to get vanilla, a classic.

IMG_4442And to cleanse the palate, the lemon lime sorbet was a tart and refreshing choice. Stop in to Commonwealth to try any (or all) of the rotating seasonal ice cream flavors!
