BE­YOND “BLUE” BERRIES

Blue is one of the rarest colours in the fruit and veg­etable world

6 Salted Blue Corn Cone Usu­ally the cone is the throw-away. Not so at Merry Dairy, where ar­ti­sanal ice cream finds a wor­thy holder in whim­si­cal (and flavour­ful) salted blue corn cone im­ported from New York’s The Kon­ery. So in­sta­grammable! Pair with su­per-creamy cus­tard soft serve and a splash of caramel sauce. $1.50. 102 Fair­mont Ave. SB

7 Pina Co­lada Mac­arons The pas­tel-hued mac­aron is the very def­i­ni­tion of in­dul­gence, and Quelque Chose Pâtis­serie has ex­panded to three lo­ca­tions in just a few years on the strength of these tiny treats. Skip the clas­sics just this once and opt for an ex­otic blue mac­aron. The turquoise pina co­lada is a cre­ative pick, though the uni­corn-in­spired cot­ton candy mac­aron with its baby blue and pink shell is also en­chant­ing. Six for $14.40. 379 Rich­mond Rd. and two other lo­ca­tions. SB

8 Blue­berry Cream White Bon­bon ”I love any­thing blue­berry!” says Alicja Bu­chow­icz, owner/choco­latier of Alicja Con­fec­tions. The sec­ond flavour Bu­chow­icz made in her early days of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion was the Blue­berry Cream White Bon­bon. And straight off, it worked! The white cho­co­late shell is filled with more white cho­co­late mixed with lots of or­ganic blue­ber­ries. $2.50. 829 Bank St. CD
