just one cornetto

One of the best things of the year between mid-february and the end of october? The Italian ice-cream shops in Germany are open. Selling a large selection of proper Italian ice-cream, several different cafés in each city, everything still comparatively reasonable priced. I just can´t resist it...

In the UK you can´t really get proper Italian ice-cream. Some posh places try it but the results look artificial, are overpriced and simply don´t convince me. The average ice-cream van driving around normally only sells ice lollies and soft ice. How bland and boring...

Sorry, but that´s just not good enough! I want choice, variety, freshness, exciting new and traditional flavours and want to indulge in different combinations every time. And all that for less money than all the half-hearted attempts on the island. If you would know what you are missing!


  1. Ohhh, jaaaaaaaa :) Eiscreme ist einfach zu lecker. Am liebsten jeden Tag :P Die Hüfte freut sich -.- Liebe Grüße

  2. I actually really like the soft ice cream in a cone, with a chocolate flake! It's simple, classic and reminds me of being little! However, the Italian ice cream does look really good in that picture! x
