A fudge feast that deserves its fame

Share on Nextdoor

The "World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae" really is worthy of the title at Ghirardelli (pronounced gear-ar-delly) Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop at Downtown Disney Marketplace (934-8855).

We polished one off with a friend after a brutally hot day at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and we can honestly say it was memorably outstanding. The hand-scooped chocolate-chip ice cream wasn't bad, but the homemade hot fudge sauce was the clincher: thick and smooth, topped off with sweet whipped cream, chopped almonds and a maraschino cherry -- completely decadent. Be prepared to pay the price: $5.95.

The only thing more awe-inspiring is the "ultimate colossal sundae ($19.95) -- eight scoops, eight toppings, sliced bananas, almonds, whipped cream and cherries.
