I thought Strawberry might be a safe bet at Summer's but it was way too sweet, with ice crystals.
What flavours have stood out for you? I'm mostly interested in independent shops, not national/international brands.
My favourites lately are:
Il Gelatiere: Cioccolato, Cioccolato peperoncino, tartufo, menta, fondente, maria, lemon - haven't really liked their non-lemon fruit flavours that much
Soma: Dark Chocolate, lemon, raspberry
Xococava: mango- haven't tried anything else
La Paloma: lemon
Hollywood: Their Valrhona chocolate is ok. Which flavours do you like?
Have no clue what to order at these places:
Greg's - lots of press about the Roasted Marshmallow- but what else does he do well?
Summer's- haven't enjoyed anything I've tried here- what do they do best?
Dolce on College
Sicilian Ice Cream Factory- have found their products too sweet- but is there a specific flavour they do well?
Sweet Escape Patisserie in the Distilery
And if I head up north, what flavours should I try at Kawartha Dairy?
Where else do you like to go for a scoop or 2?
