Fire & Ice, Hot Wing Tasting, Ice Cream Tasting, Polar Bear Plunge, Special Olympics Delaware, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, I have Died and Gone to Heaven

An annual event for many years The Polar Bear Plunge Weekend has been raising funds for Special Olympics Delaware. So many people come to Rehoboth Beach because what else are you going to do the first week in February?

I got a call from our local celebrity, The Rehoboth Foodie, wondering if I could take his place judging the wings and ice cream event. Is the Pope Catholic? Of course, I was honored.

I have an idea how my wings should look and taste. I was so excited.

The event was at The Atlantic Sands Hotel on Baltimore Ave. And these were your Judges?

Left to right was Kathy, the Rehoboth Foodie’s sister, yours truly, Pam George, writer, editor and food blogger, and Steve, her husband.

Wing enthusiasts will be celebrating Super Bowl Sunday eating away chicken wings prepared in many different ways. It has been stated that about 1 billion wings will be enjoyed on that day.?

Prior to the public coming in we went through the different tables tasting. We had to judge based on Appearance, Texture/Tenderness, Taste. For the ice, same except no tenderness ?

My first stop was Zogg’s. They are located on 1 Wilmington Ave.

I loved everything about them. They hit all the boxes in such an amazing way.

Next tasting was Tiki Jac’s. They are located at 71 Rehoboth Ave. These wings looked beautiful. Smoked with a rum glaze. I would have preferred them more crispy.

I was told that when you are cooking wings for the amount of guests coming in…….1,500 expected the sauces or glazes poured over tend to soften the skin.

Let’s try an ice cream to clean the palate. Woodside Creamery had a delicious ice cream. They are located in Hockessin and everything is made from scratch. The only place you can get their ice cream in Rehoboth Beach is at The Ice Cream Store. It hit all the boxes.

You start eating and yummy it is and then that green caramel explodes in your mouth.

A stop to Fish On was next.

Their wings looked great.

Usually when you order wings they bring you a blue cheese sauce for dipping. A sprinkle of blue cheese gave them a great kick.

Iron Hill Brewery had another great presentation but I still think they needed to be crispier. Iron Hill is located at 19815 Coastal Highway.

Kara’s Sugar Kitchen. Soft almost like a custard.

Ladies I love your photo?? I apologize because while enjoying my ice cream I forgot to take a photo. The crisp complemented the ice cream so well.

Kara’s Sugar Kitchen is on Social Media.

Kiwi’s Kove had a blend of spices giving them a little heat. They are located at 101 N. Boardwalk

The doors opened and I could see the people were ready. It was so much fun and for a very good cause with funds staying in Delaware.

Our job was complete but not before telling Kathy that it was a pleasure to have met her.

Until then. Please remember that AboutMyBeaches is on Instagram and Facebook.
