Some people prefer the taste of sorbet over ice cream. Particularly tart and refreshing, lemon sorbet has been known to have been served at upscale restaurants between courses so people can cleanse their palates.
ThisWeek staffers answer the question: Do you ever cleanse your palate with lemon sorbet?
Andrew King: Do people actually do this?
Scott Hummel: Nope. Wait ... Nope.
Sarah Sole: I don't, but I don't really have any lemon sorbet on hand during my meals.
Nate Ellis: I’ve never specifically sought to cleanse my palate with it but sounds good.
Dennis Laycock: I don't keep sorbet around the house to cleanse my palate between my salami-sandwich course and Ruffles course, no, but I've cleansed a couple of times at nice restaurants.

Lisa Proctor: This is not a thing for me.
Neil Thompson: If I'm offered it at a restaurant, absolutely. But I don't go out of my way to get it.
Lee Cochran: One time, while on a trip in Napa Valley. One of the best meals I've had.
