Review: Banana Cream Pie Sundae Toothsome Chocolate Emporium


Once again, my culinary adventure in Orlando brought me to Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. When I visit here, I tend to focus on the savory options. However, the sweet treats at Toothsome draw the crowds. Though the milkshakes function as the biggest draw here, I often recommend the sundaes. They are easier to share. Also, they usually contain the same ingredients as milkshakes for a slightly lower price.

During a recent trip to Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen, I shared a “Banana Cream Pie Sundae” with my dining associates. For the record, I did not select this choice. I did urge them to get a sundae though. I believe Penelope, the “owner” of Toothsome, suggested it. For the record, we had an excellent interaction with Penelope during this late lunch.

The “Banana Cream Pie Sundae” costs $13.50. The sundae portion size fulfills what you would expect from Toothsome. The ingredients list tells us to expect chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream. A chocolate covered banana sits in the middle of this sundae. This positioning keeps causing me to call it a banana split instead of a sundae. The sundae also features a small slice of banana cream pie, strawberry, chocolate, and caramel sauces. Guests will enjoy the chocolate almond bark, whipped topping, and rainbow sprinkles too. For the record, this sundae meets vegetarian dining standards.

I will start with the negatives. The banana itself makes the largest fail of this sundae. In fairness, this might be the only negative. From our experience, the banana tasted still a bit frozen with average chocolate quality.

However, the rest of this sundae tasted very good. The overall flavor works as a great banana pudding. My fellow diners felt they enjoyed the banana pudding flavor. The slice of banana cream pie brought the best flavor in this sundae. If they offered a larger version of just that pie, I would have ordered about four of them.

As mentioned above, I suggest sundaes often here. This shared desert worked very well for three people after a meal at Toothsome. The texture and consistency did not overwhelm like the shakes can do. Remember, you can order sundaes at The Foundry located in Toothsome lobby. Thus, a reservation is not required to eat this.

Thanks for reading. As always, eat like you mean it!
