Nerd Food: Ghirardelli's Twin Peaks Sundae Won't Tell You Who Killed Laura Palmer, But It's Hella Delicious

Is it safe to assume that about 80% of you are excited for Showtime's Twin Peaks to come back? My sister — who was born the year the first season aired — is bewilderingly excited about it. I've never seen it, so please be gentle on judging me. I'll binge it this weekend, promise. All that aside, we discovered that Ghirardelli in Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) offers a Twin Peaks Marshmallow Hot Fudge Sundae.

Ok, to be entirely fair, in this case, Twin Peaks refers to the twin hills near the center of San Francisco (the home of the Ghirardelli). That said, I still feel like they should have included coffee-flavored ice cream in this, but whatever. My mom was kind enough to eat it with me, because I'm likely going to die from all the crap I eat for this column.

It's actually really good. It's tradition for my mom and I to eat here when in Disney, so honestly, I didn't go out of my way for this. In fact, I didn't even know this was a thing. But here we are and we're all the better for it.

At $12, the price is on the steep side — but again, you're at Disney, so everything is more expensive here. The sundae was delicious, and the marshmallow and hot fudge complimented each other well; but I probably didn't need to tell you that. If you're in the area, I suggest trying this sundae, but I wouldn't go out of your way for it.
