Spumoni?? (Other than Dreyer's....)

janetofreno | Jul 13, 2007 11:56 PM

My husband loves spumoni ice cream. It is his comfort food, what can I say.

We'd both had a rough week, so tonight when I saw that Dreyer's had a new spumoni flavor I bought it as a treat for him. It was a bust...so much so that he thanked me for the thought but asked me not to buy it again. (As a side note: that is the second new Dreyer's flavor I've tried recently I've been disappointed in..the other being a cherry chocolate chip. I should have stuck to Cherry Garcia. And I'm an Oakland girl who grew up on Dreyers....).

Anyway, the only decent spumoni we've been able to find here in the hinterlands is at a neighborhood Italian place that otherwise is ok but nothing special....and we certainly can't go out there every time he craves spumoni, because that would be almost nightly...so does anyone have any idea of a good commercially available spumoni ice cream on the west coast? And if so, where can it be found....Do any of the ice cream chains (Baskin-Robbins, Swenson's, etc) have it??

I suppose I might have to visit that restaurant and see if they can tell me their supplier....
