The swingle

It's hard to convey the divinity of a swingle in a photograph. It's hot outside so there's the melting factor, not to mention that they're just a bit too heavy to be held up by a little popsicle stick.

Plus, it's hard to have a swingle in your hand and not be eating it. I could only mange a few pictures before I gave in. Never heard of a swingle? Neither had I, so you're in good company.

They can be found only in the remote reaches of uncharted Red Hook at Steve's Authentic. For awhile I thought it was called a swindle, not swingle, perhaps because it's more than i'd like to spend on a street side popsicle. But 5 dollars for pure heaven it sometimes necessary.

Anyway. It's a 4" key lime tart, dipped in dark chocolate and frozen. On a stick. Oh god. It's unbelievable.

And I am not the only one who thinks so. Shopdog Nea has also actively declared herself a fan of frozen lime custard.
