vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso poured over the top

Have you ever had this dessert? It is heavenly. It is so simple but so good. We are trying to come up with a name for it that is more descriptive and sexy than the current working name which is "espresso surprise".

Here are all the names that have been proposed thus far and my gut reactions to them:

versata sounds like something that contains green vegetables or is an italian clothing line

espresso slide good but too generic

'spresso swoosh reminds me of Nike

dirty sitzmark too german and industrial sounding

please add your ideas!

I thought that new treat you mentioned ....what did you call it?...espresso surprise, I thought it was called ice cream surprise by Mocha Marcie...(or is she known as Marvelous Marcie...I'm not sure). I think you should put toffee bar surprise on the menu, & everytime time someone orders a toffee bar warm it up & throw a scoop of vanilla ice cream on it without asking & hand it to them saying "Have a Great Day!! with your 'toffee surprise'!!"

It is an old classic Italian dessert called Affagato.
