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.
