Nothing is more iconic of a dessert in Massachusetts than the Boston cream pie. What is it exactly? Well, it’s an absolutely delicious pastry cream sandwiched between two light yellow cake halves with a chocolate icing spilled over it. The Boston cream pie was originally conceived at the Boston Parker House Hotel in Boston by French chef, M. Sanzian.
The packaging proudly states “Vermont’s finest” and has a picture of the dessert, a speech bubble to the home team, and the Paul Revere Statue. Each serving is one half cup, which is the standard serving size for ice cream. It contains 250 calories, 13 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 90 milligrams of cholesterol, 29 grams of carbohydrates, and 26 grams of sugar. Which is just a bit more than one slice of the actual dessert. But you don’t care about that. Even if you did, your figure has nothing to do with why you’re eating this ice cream, does it?
