Sounds well balanced: fruits, nuts, coffee, dairy, and chocolate!

All of those flavors sound good. We frequently had gelato for or with lunch in Italy, and my brother would always order pistacchio, as that is his favorite and is much more common in Italy than here - plus it was better in Italy, according to Kevin. I had to teach him how to pronounce it in Italian, which, for once, he was happy to learn.

My favorite flavors are mamey, guanabana/cherimoya, and coconut (separately - not together), as they remind me of being on the beach in Mexico. Mamey paletas are now commonly available here in Los Angeles, and I get guanabana licuados at the Mar Vista Farmers' Market.

I want it all! I daughter just called and asked what I wanted her to bring me from the Vineyard. I said "Ginger Ice Cream" from Scoops! That would be a bit of a challenge, so only in my dreams.

Hmm, chocolate comes from a plant, therefore its a plant food. That's got to be a health food - Go for it!

Chocolate is in fact quite healthy. But the sugar in it is not. So.... eat the highest cacao level you can get used to. I like 90%--it's so rich that you don't need very much of it. Combined with some nuts, it's heaven. And healthy!

I am not a big ice cream eater but your choices do sound good. I too like coffee ice cream. Starbucks used to make a Java chunk, had big pieces of dark chocolate in it, I loved it.

Enjoy!

Aw! How cool.


Mom and I used to have I've cream for lunch when we worked together. Go smile at the cute guys at the grocery store (I think she liked the mailman who deliverd to them, and I liked a produce/stocker), then sit on the curb with a cone. Ice cream is still her favorite.

Now I'm feeling sad......no ice cream in the house. Finished the last two days ago in a root beer float. :-)))

Looks like you're having a terrific time on your vacation, Moni! Are these friends of yours or are they posters here? Sorry for my ignorance.

Rob, what a lovely picture of your mother. I'll bet she was a beauty in her younger years. Well, she still is. :)

Terrific flavors - I love coffee ice cream.

Sweet photo of your mom, rob. She has beautiful eyes.

Tomorrow, one of our local churches is holding a bake sale. It starts at 9:00a.m. and I'll be there to get a slice of pecan pie. The pecan pie is in high demand and will be gone by 9:30. They offer a scoop of ice cream with the pie; breakfast tomorrow is going to be the best pecan pie I've ever had and a scoop of ice cream.

Judy is a former KT'er. She had a KT get together at her home few years ago.

Dawn, come visit and I will make a pecan pie we can share. I seldom make one anymore as DH doesn’t care for it.

rob, I love that photo of your Mom enjoying her ice cream. Beautiful!

Lunch/early afternoon is the best time for ice cream. The folks that frown and state desserts should just be an after dinner treat only, don't seem to grasp that it is much more refreshing at the hottest time of the day.

Lat night it was hot (81 in Long island NY) so for dinner I made an ice cream soda with chocolate and coffee ice creams, Hershey syrup and seltzer. I live alone, yes I am a little overweight, but it sure cheered me up. I did not eat anything else the rest of the night, so i feel like I minimized the weight gain.
