The Foie-cicle: A Cold Summer Treat

You’re spoiling your dessert with all that dinner!

Waiters at Michelin-starred Band of Bohemia in Chicago warn patrons to “save room for dessert” because that dessert could be a foie gras popsicle, AKA the foie-cicle.

This unusual desert takes three days to prepare, contains 2 ounces of foie gras whipped with baked bananas, and is coated in dark chocolate. They make only 40 at a time, and they sell out the batch over an average weekend. Customers are responding positively – and we wonder: would you eat it?
