Today is Wednesday and Mr Shuck working downtown, so he asked if I wanted a treat. I called ahead to get the flavors of the day and was torn between coconut lime and pandan. When asked, Mike told me that pandan is an Asian leaf. It seemed exotic, so that’s the one I chose. Apparently the leaves have a nutty, botanical fragrance and will repel cockroaches. Bonus!
This is probably one of my least favorite flavors from Yellow Leaf. It was okay… I finished it… It didn’t have much flavor. I definitely didn’t get “nutty”. I definitely saw “botanical” because it was VERY GREEN. I also didn’t enjoy the icing. Italian Meringue butter cream without additional flavor tastes like it’s main ingredient, butter. There was a sprinkling of coconut on top which cut the butteriness a bit at least.
My rating: ♥1/2. I might eat this again if I didn’t have to pay for it, but it would really depend on how hungry I was and what other options were available.
