GaGa sherbet

gaga? oh yes.

I'm sorry to so easily fall into the pun the makers of this delicious concoction clearly want us to use, but we are honestly gaga about this stuff.

Do you know why I don't have a photograph of the creamy, tart lemon goodness in a bowl, slightly melting, so as to entice you to bite into it? Because the Chef and I ate all four pints the company sent us before we even thought of photographing them. Nights in a row, we'd settle down to watch Jon Stewart as Little Bean slept, and he'd look at me and say, "Do you want some of that sherbet stuff?" Of course. And we'd dig our two spoons into the carton, determined to not eat the entire pint, and failed every time.

I'm lucky I could save the carton for photographing.

Is it sherbet? No. Sherbet contains milk, but not cream, and not enough to call it ice cream. But proper ice cream contains eggs, and this does not. So it's a hybrid, something in between, all its own.

Just call it amazing and put some in your freezer. It won't last long.

"Creamy lovely goodness," the Chef just said, when I asked him to describe it. "It should be illegal." Tell truth, he's so obsessed with GaGa that he's making a citrus sherbet in the kitchen right now, trying to replicate it. He's good, but I don't know if he'll do it, right off the bat. There's some magic elixir in this, something mysterious that makes you eat an entire pint of the creamy sweetness in one sitting.

All the ingredients are natural, not indecipherable. The lemon flavor really does taste like lemon, with a puckery tartness. It's a family-begun business (the name comes from the nickname for the grandmother). And it's gluten-free.

Right now, GaGa is not available in Seattle. If you live here, ask your grocer for it, now. If you live somewhere where GaGa is available, then what are you doing reading this? Run out and buy some now.

That looks so delicious! And so weird, but my little guy calls my mother-in-law Gaga. I wonder where that version of "grandmother" came from?

Oh, this is one of my favorite sites! Glad to see a new post. I sure wish this was near me, the closest store that sells GaGa is like 300 miles from here! My partner grandfather was a Gaga!

OK, I am off to our local Stop & Shop in RI to appease my 3 year old after shots and I will let you know if we have it out here yet.

The company was started by a guy from the TV station I used to work at in Providence, and if I remember correctly the recipe is his grandmother's and that's where the name comes from. It's wonderful stuff! And even better, the company owner is a really nice guy!

Ice cream made with cream but no eggs is called Philadelphia ice cream. I used to love reading the descriptions of it in my Fannie Farmer cookbook! the best!!!

I buy Gaga at Whole Foods and it is so good and addictive. I love it but don't buy it much since I don't want to eat the whole carton.

I finally found this, and it was worth the wait! Wow. It's so good, I hid it in the back of the fridge so the kids don't see it. It'll be gone within 24 hours.

Thanks!

The great thing about this stuff is that you CAN eat the whole pint and not feel guilty!! The whole entire pint has as much fat as only 1 puny serving of ice cream. And it tastes just as good if not better than ice cream. It's like miracle food! I feel so lucky to live in Warwick, home of gaga :) I LOVE every flavor but the chocolate. I wish they would come up with a pineapple coconut flavor.
