With Summer approaching, what better way to cool off than to get a $1 McDonald’s soft drink/iced coffee (thumbs up!!!), $1 Tim Horton’s Frozen Lemonade (not for me personally), Mister Softee, ice cream cone/cup, or Gelato?
Well, I’ve come to the realisation that I just don’t ‘get’ Gelato. Granted, I’ve never been to Italy, but according to family & restaurant reviews, I have been to the better Gelaterias in the city and still haven’t been impressed by any explosions of joy to my mouth!
I do like the visual presentation: Rows of swirled, different coloured, flavoured ice with real fruit on top. However, in terms of the taste, it’s fleeting. I much prefer good ice cream, frozen yogurt a la Menchie’s/Yogurty’s/Ikea, or just soft serve!
How about you, do you ‘get’ Gelato??
