I’m off to Venice and Malta for the next week. I’ll try to get back online to post Saturday’s carnival. Otherwise, expect little posting till I return. I challenge you to list your favorite gelato flavor; I’ll try every one that gets posted in the comments!

Arrivederci e a dopo! Sahha u narak iktar tard!

I would be hard-pressed to decide between almond and hazelnut; good thing they taste great together!

Nutella and Pistachio (together) are good! I tried pistachio and kiwi together once, NOT good. :) If the colors coordinate, they might taste good together–that’s my advice. Eat lots for me–YUMMMMMM

Oh dear, I don’t think I ever picked the perfect combination. Maybe I decided it was raspberry and one of the more snooty chocolate flavors.

The weird thing is that I encountered this dilemma in Chile, where gelato is so popular and I definitely didn’t expect it. Even worse was that they had soooo many flavors, and looked at you funny if you said you only wanted one scoop, or tried to order both scoops with the same flavor. Therefore it became a challenge to try to find the perfect combo every time my friend and I went to the movie theater. (Because you get gelato and doughnuts for the movies there, of course.)

I have to say that Venice is no Florence when it comes to ice cream — maybe it’s just because we’re out of “season” as it were, but I have had a heck of a time finding gelato, let alone a wide selection of flavors. For you, Kama, I had pistachio with AKDMyers’ hazelnut. Dana, I couldn’t find a worthy chocolate OR raspberry, so I went for two flavors I’d never had before instead — crema and fior di latte. I have one more chance after I return from Malta. Will update again then!

After a fruitless Sunday of searching for ice cream in Malta, I finally discovered a great place just around the corner from where I am staying. This time I had AKDMyers’ almond with Dana’s chocolate (20 fruit flavors and no raspberry!) and a scoop of licorice for good measure. Mmmm, it was delicious!
