Raspberry lemon scone from @acrcoffee .
Price: Not sure
Here’s the #thing, folks. I know you’re standing there behind your #pulpit of pretension, screaming at the top of your #lungs, “9/10!?!? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!? HAS HE GONE SOFT?!” Well let me reassure you that unlike my beloved #pastry counterpart (the humble #scone) I have NOT gone soft.
Frankly, it really hurts my feelings that you would say such an assumptive and #abrasive thing about me. The simple truth is, sometime a scone comes along that makes you say, “Yeah. This is a great scone. I think I’m gonna rate this a 9/10.” And then you do it. And that’s what I did.
But much like a well-made scone, I’m beginning to feel myself #crumbling apart at even the most gentle #touch. Yesterday I was at a @dennysdiner (just like every other #Wednesday morning, noon and night) and the #waitress put her hand on my shoulder to ask if I was finished with my plate. I immediately reacted by #screaming at a volume that was both surprising to myself, and the young #family behind me. Then the tears came, followed shortly by a half-hearted #JerrySeinfeld impersonation. Long story short, I feel there’s something missing in my life, and there’s a small chance that #something is #human companionship.
Now on to the review!
This particularly pleasing pastry was a fine example of the traditional school of scone thought. Sure, it wasn’t a #triangle, but who cares. It may have even been shaped using a biscuit cutter. But the point is, it wasn’t overly #moist like a #muffin, and it had that crumbly #consistency you KNOW I’m a sucker for. But it didn’t stop there. I found GENUINE raspberry seeds getting stuck in my molars, and I ENJOYED getting them out with my tongue. That is to say, the #flavor profile was a touch shy of “daring” — but well-balanced and executed nonetheless.
