Afters Ice Cream
April 6, 2023
While eating in The Annex you might start craving something sweet, and nothing is better than finishing up a meal with a nice scoop of ice cream. As you walk into Afters you are welcomed by a very modern, aesthetically pleasing room, decorated with LED lights and a black-and-white theme. Walking up to the glass-guarded ice creams, the variety is wild. Afters is known for their unique and strange flavors, giving its consumer an opportunity to taste combinations they might have never thought of.
Camilla: The Mint Monster flavor may be one of the brightest ice creams that I have ever seen. The green color was deeply saturated, and also had chocolate chip cookie chunks, as well as crushed Oreo pieces mixed into it. While the idea of it may have been cool, the bright green color wasn’t appetizing for the eyes and almost made me hold off on ordering it. I ended up going through with it, hoping that it would exceed my expectations, but it did not. Once I bit into it, I realized I liked everything about it — the cone, the chocolate chip cookie chunks and crushed Oreo pieces — except for the flavor of the ice cream itself. The mint tasted fake rather than fresh, and wasn’t super strong. Overall, I would rate this ice cream a 3/10.
