Bastille Day with Torico's Ice Cream

Celebrate Bastille Day with Torico’s Ice Cream

Bastille Day, also known as French National Day, is a holiday celebrating the beginning of the French Revolution and the Storming of the Bastille. Foodies from around the world commemorate this moment in history with the best in French cuisine, including truffle ice cream delights. According to SortiraParis.com, the city’s number one city guide, ice cream makers are concocting unique flavors with an importance on all-natural ingredients.

Lucky for #HipNJ, we don’t have to travel far to experience Paris’ ice cream culture, thanks to Torico’s Ice Cream in Jersey City!

Bastille Day

Their “Three Course Dessert” ice cream cake contains a collection of chocolate sweets. They hand roll brownie truffles and cover them in a dusting of cocoa powder and chocolate sprinkles. In between the truffles stand broken ice cream sandwich cookies atop dollops of chocolate whipped cream. The final course comes from a drizzling of chocolate fudge over each cocoa inspired delicacy on the cake.

If you think that sounds good, wait until you try it. Order one today!
