  • ITB: Vanilla ice cream with caramel drizzled on top.
  • Wet:  It’s an odd vanilla ice cream now, like something artificial and chemically added to it.
  • Dry:  It smells like vanilla, honey (which is a no-no one me), and beeswax for some reason.
Other Impressions:  “Like leather and muffins.” -Tony
