Best Dessert Orange County 2010 - Frostbites
It may not be the first Italian-ice joint in Orange County, and it may not be the last, but for the moment, Frostbites has the dessert to detox you from too many disappointing frozen-yogurt stands. The frozen confection here tastes like something between an ICEE and a sorbet. Though thick enough to hang from an inverted spoon, it melts in a hurry in your mouth. Actual pieces of fruit are whirred into the slurry: You'll chew on coconut shreds, get strawberry seeds stuck between your teeth and relish the lushness of mango. Best of all, when it's paired with vanilla ice cream, the resulting mix of dairy and fruit is like eating a Creamsicle in a cup.
