    Default A Day Late but Not an Ice Cream Cone Short

    July is National Ice Cream Month in the U.S. (according to a proclaimation
    by President Ronald Reagan in 1984). So enjoy a scoop, a bowl, a cone, a
    sundae, maybe even a banana split this month! Sprinkles, no sprinkles...
    toppings or not. It's up to you. (My mother loved vanilla ice cream with
    gooey butterscotch topping.) Me, simply a scoop of coffee ice cream.
    What's yours?

    There is a bar/gelateria at the edge of the city as I drive home that makes
    a black chocolate with chili peppers. It's simply astounding. I have
    gelato once a year and it is usually that one.

    I like dark chocolate ice cream with chunks of white chocolate and a fresh
    raspberry sauce. I also like many of the Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors.
    Standouts are Phish phood, Cherry Garcia, Karamel Sutra, Creme Brulee, and
    Pistachio Pistachio. I do *not* like cookie dough in ice cream, though.

    I've heard of but, never tried, gelato. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever
    seen it offered in any place I've lived. But it always sounds delicious!

    It's lower fat since cream rarely shows up in it, but eggs often do. There
    is much less air beaten into it, too. If you get the chance to choose, look
    for a sign saying "artigianale" because then only real flavors are used,
    whereas the ordinary gelateria may use mixes and you could do that yourself.
    The intensity of the flavor can be just stunning.

    That depends on who is making the ice cream. At one ice cream
    stand, I usually get pistachio. Theirs is loaded with nuts, no
    food coloring, etc. Yum.

    At a now-defunct place, I would usually get the very intense
    chocolate pudding--a scoop of sweet cream was almost mandatory to
    offset this (and that from a chocoholic).

    At another place, I look for Burnt Caramel or Kulfi (which they
    also call cardamom-pistachio).

    And then there is mocha-almond (heavily tilted toward coffee, please).

    You would think with this list that I live on ice cream. No. I
    try to stay away and might have it twice a season.

    here's a cherry garcia story, sort of:

    Your Dead review reminded me of their visit to the White House during the
    Clinton years. The VP's office had asked me to arrange it "unofficially"
    so it would not show up on his schedule. We arranged for them to "run
    into" each other in the House. Mr. Gore is a HUGE Dead Head from his time
    in Viet Nam. The band arrived and I went to greet them and introduce their
    Secret Service escort. I myself had been more of a Stones and Poco fan,
    and didn't want to say I loved the music. So when we were chatting with
    Jerry Garcia, I said "I love your ties," which he seemed to appreciate.
    The USSS officer then said "And I love your ice cream." Jerry laughed and
    said, "Great! Of course you know I had nothing to do with it, but I can say
    that the day it came out was the happiest day in my lawyer's life."

    I worked outside for a couple hours last night and by the time I came
    inside, around 7 or so, I wasn't hungry for anything normal, so I had
    some chocolate ice cream for supper. It was perfect, after working in
    85-90 degrees!

    I can't remember the last time I had a cone. I have ice cream once a
    year but my first choice would be caramel pecan in a waffle cone. I
    also like raspberry sherbet. I've made ice cream from wild
    blackberries and it's excellent but I didn't have a food mill at the
    time so it was a pita to eat. I've got a food mill now so I'll be
    making some soon. I've even got some black raspberries in the freezer
    from last year that need to be used.

    Oooh, I love butterbrickle! If it doesn't contain nuts I'll have to look
    for it. Ice cream is one of those once or twice a year things for me but
    when I get a craving... milkshakes may be in the works!

    You just can't beat a really good vanilla. Hagen Daz, Ben & Jerry and the
    like. I like most of the fruit flavors and a good chocolate, but probably
    50% or more of what I eat is vanilla. No toppings needed.

    Worth the effort if you can find it. I cannot imagine why it has not taken
    off more in th is country When in Italy, I make it a point to have wine
    every day and gelato every day. Vita buona.

    One of my favorites is really rich dark chocolate ice cream
    with marshmallow topping. I'm a nut for marshmallow topping.

    And a nice big bowl of my homemade strawberry or peach ice
    cream topped with more strawberries or peaches is to die for.

    And then there's Baskin-Robbins Love Potion #31! I love that
    stuff.

    B&J's Phish Food, Karamel Sutra, Turtle Soup, and Maple Blondie.

    I'm the same way, Bob. No cookie dough, cake, cookies, etc. There
    is one exception though. I recently tasted Maple Blondie and I really
    liked it. The "blondie" pieces were very chewy and then I did not find
    them objectionable.

    I also hate nuts in ice cream, except when they are coated in chocolate
    or candy, thus maintaining their crunchiness. If they are just naked in
    the ice cream the get soggy and I hate that texture.
