Yes, ice cream is a popular topic on my blog because I love it! I love iced treats in all forms–ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt…(am I the only one who remembers ice milk?). Recently, I went to one of my favorite ice cream shops in the city, Sundaes and Cones, in the East Village, with a hankering for my favorite flavor there–corn. I got that along with ginger and Thai tea. What a delight! One was better than the other, but my favorite is still corn!
In addition to old favorites, I love giving new places a try. While in Little Italy for San Gennaro, I stepped into Mo Gelato, a new gelateria. Of course, gelato is better for you than ice cream, so I was being healthy when I got a double scoop (in a cup, mind you). Cherry and mascarpone flavors. Both were out of this world. The mascarpone was so creamy, but the cherry was the showstopper. Also creamy, it just had the perfect cherry flavor and a tiny bit of a crunch. L’arte del Gelato finally has some competition.
