Garlic Fest 2014: Four Strange Sweet Treats Infused With Garlic

Categories: Things To Do


3. Garlic Plantain Chocolate-Covered Frozen Banana

As strange as this sweet treat sounds, it was one of the least offensive garlic desserts at the festival. With just a hint of the vegetable and salty plantain chips to balance out the sweetness of the chocolate and banana, it was a refreshing palate cleanser from the rest of the pungent dishes.

2. Garlic Funnel Cake

The favorite childhood treat was introduced to some grown-up flavors over the weekend. The sweet fried dough had raw garlic added to the batter and was topped with powdered sugar. While the overall garlic flavor was mild, the thicker areas did have a fairly strong aftertaste. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.


1. Garlic Ice Cream

A staple of the festival, garlic ice cream is definitely one of the weirder dishes to be found. Although it does sound like one of those food items that could be so odd it's good, this incarnation was just all right. At first, it just tastes like vanilla ice cream, but after sitting on the palate for a minute, notes of raw garlic take over. It's not completely unpleasant, but it's nothing to write home about. Had the garlic been roasted beforehand, it might be a whole other story.
