Flan Therapy at Blue Bonnet Cafe {Denver}

I’ll admit, my nose used to turn up at the sight or talk of flan.  I think it’s because I had a bad experience while flunking my way through Spanish class in college.  Our professor insisted we eat her homemade gelatinous mess, which she called “Flan”.  I spent years of flan therapy on many a flan therapists couch, trying to get over the horrid “Flan Incident of 1997”.

Until a tasting at the Blue Bonnet Cafe in Denver, which changed my {flan} life.  You can imagine my surprise that my taste buds and thoughts have now been consumed with HOW CAN I GET MORE FLAN!!  Its vanilla custard texture was perfect and that sweet caramel – holy tamale, it’s got me pining for more.  And did I mention Gluten Free?

Consume that plate of perfect flan with an Orange Infused Margarita, tastes just like an Orange Dreamsicle.  The two flavors from your margarita and flan paired together will knock your sombrero off.

And lastly, but definitely not leastly, just launching this summer are Gourmet Popsicles which are so phenomenally good, you’ll want one of each.   Order the whole gambit of flavors for your table and take a nibble of each.  My favorites:  Pistachio (green) and Bubble Gum (blue).  Pure adult summer fun (ok, I guess you can include the kids on the fun too, sheesh). 

Like what you see?  Show them some sugar…
