    What starts as traditional ice cream is quickly transformed by adding the plethora of unique toppings. We recommend the Salty Pimp – vanilla ice cream, topped with dulce de leche, and chocolate.

    Go to the BGICT and get some sort of crazy topping - olive oil and salt, sriracha, dulce de leche and nilla wafers, or the popular Choinkwich - bacon ice cream sandwich!

    Although they were out of Choinkwich bacon, I think i prefer the Salty Pimp anyway - salted chocolate dip over dulce de leche topping, that's all the flavors I could wish for!
