National Ice Cream Month starts today

Okay July, is it going to be hot and sunny? Or hot, cool, cloudy, sunny, and rainy in a wonky weather game of spin-the-bottle? Regardless of how this month progresses, each Friday I’ll post frozen desserts currently taking up space in the freezer. It is true that in a country like Italy, artisan gelato is king. But when supermarkets start pitching the weekly ice cream sales on two full pages, why not grab your fair share of them?

Ice cream bars

I am a shameless fan of Magnum bars, especially the mini’s, but still waiting on the peanut butter flavor to reach stores over here.

Oreo ice cream stick

Oreo ice cream on a stick is okay if you like Oreos, but I’m more of a Fig Newton type of gal.

    We live less than ten minutes walking distance from our favorite ice cream place that sells 1 scoop of ice cream in a sugar cone for $1.25. We have flavor choices like Maui Wowie, Ube, Macapuno, avocado and yes Halo Halo…Okay, I feel like going right now! 🙂

      Maui Wowie, Ube, Macapuno….I’m jealous. Our favorite gelateria puts out new flavors each week but I’ve never seen anything like what you have. I’ll trade our sicilian fig and ricotta for your Halo Halo.
