If you live along the Gulf Coast and know what an Elmer’s Gold Brick Egg is (they’re available around Easter), at Borden’s, you can get “Goldbrick” as a topping any time — milk chocolate + pecans:

Meanwhile, I have a new favorite ice cream. Which…I should actually say gelato — Sweet Magnolia Ice Cream Company that’s made in Clarksdale, Mississippi is available at my Whole Foods. Delta Buttered Pecan Gelato = *the best*.
