To honor the Game of Thrones seventh season, Madison Kitchen in Larchmont is launching the “Game of Cones” challenge, a seven-week Instagram competition featuring a different Bona Bona ice cream flavor paired with a Great House for every new episode.
For the first week House Lannister was represented by Nutella S’mores. While enjoying this toasty treat, think back to how Cersei roasted King's Landing at the conclusion of season 6.
Week two, beginning after the season premier on July 16, will feature Backyard Mint Chip, representing House Stark. Since the Starks hail from the North, chilly mint is a suitable match, and Bona Bona's Mint Chip ice cream is the real deal — it’s made using fresh mint so the color is all natural.Watch Chef Nick DiBona finesse his signature toasted meringue topping on a Mint Chip cone below.
Here’s how to play: Visit Madison Kitchen or the Bona Bona ice cream truck and snap a pic of the weekly-featured cone (or shake). Post your picture, tagging @mklarchmont or @bonabonaicecream with the hashtag #gameofcones. The person who posts the most will win seven pints of Bona Bona Ice Cream and a $100 gift card to Madison Kitchen. Stay tuned for the weekly-featured flavors.
