Sweet Republic's Toffee Banofi Sundae to be on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate"

It's no secret we're sweet on Sweet Republic's ice cream here at Chow Bella, and we know others are, too. Now co-owner Jan Wichayanuparp's shared news of another fan. A big one.

This Friday, March 25, the Food Network will be in Scottsdale to film a segment for "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." Apparently Alton Brown is gaga for Sweet Republic's "Toffee Banofi Sundae," which will be featured on an upcoming episode.

The sundae -- a twist on a traditional English dessert -- includes two scoops of Sweet Republic's Madagascar Vanilla ce cream, slices of ripe banana, hand-stirred caramel sauce, fresh whipped cream, another light drizzle of caramel and a topping of almond toffee.

Stay tuned and we'll share the details about when the show will air as soon as we have them.
