This ice cream is so smooth it will remind you of frozen mousse. The ginger flavour is quite mild.

This creamy Mont Blanc is quite the yum

1214 Caramel Sweet Corn IceCream (ICE POP)Caramel Sweet Corn IceCream
This is a a very interesting and flavourful ice cream. You can taste all the bits of corn in it, and resembles cream of corn soup. The caramel sits on top of the sweet corn ice cream, kind of wish it was also incorporated into the ice cream itself

原雪糕是很濃郁的奶茶味兒,但蓋過了蜜糖味兒。而且吃起來有很多的粉狀,覺得還是選擇原味蜂巢雪糕比較好

Kingston Eats: White Mountain Homemade Ice Cream

White mountain is a long time staple in Kingston.  It’s good quality homemade ice cream 🙂 Not the best but it’s really not bad.  I’ve first heard about it during frosh week (back when they still had the gigantic ice cream sign at the door 😆 ).  You can smell the delicious freshly made waffle cones once you are in the store.  Line is always long in summer time, but it gives you some time to make up your mind for what to order.  You don’t get to see the ice cream or frozen yogurt on display.  You can only see the menu on the wall.  To make things easier the menu is divided into chocolate base and non-chocolate base, but you’ll have to guess what the names mean (fortunately there are a handful of helpful staff around if you have questions).

Boston Eats: Toscanini’s Ice Cream

✣ Top pick ✣

Ice cream is very creamy and well churned.  Besides the old school flavours they also have a lot of other creative flavours.  Burnt caramel, goat cheese brownie, ginger snap molasses, earl grey and more (check the chalk board).

Khulfee (cardamom, chopped almonds & pistachios)
Slow churned ice cream blended very well with the chopped cardamon and nuts.  It’s not too overpowering but it’s definitely very cardamom-y.

Saffron
I don’t know how to describe this because saffron is such an expensive spice I hardly use it in cooking.  It’s a very subtle but yes you can definitely feel the burst of saffron in each creamy bite.  And yes you can actually find strips of saffron in the ice cream.  I really really liked this one.

Philadelphia Eats: The Franklin Fountain

✣ Top pick ✣

One of the best homemade ice-cream served in the city.  It’s an old-school ice cream parfait.  The whole store is like set-back in time 60 years ago, even their (working) telephone was one of those 1950s classic old pay phones.  Everything including ice-cream and the cones are all made-in-store (2 blocks away, according to staff).  They carry a very wide range of flavours.  Sure their parfair and sundae menu looked sinfully amazing, but it’s not because of the old-school gimmicky decorations and the beautfifully decorated sundae that made me conclude they serve the best ice creams.  Their ice cream is good enough to stand out on its own.  It is not excessively oversweet, creamy and wonderfully churned.

Peach Melba Parfait
Fresh peach ice cream doused in raspberry puree, sprinkled with diced almonds and finished with a collar of ruffled whipped cream.  Following soprano Nellie Melba’s performance of Wagner’s Lohengrin in 1893, French chef Auguste Escoffier was moved to create an exquisite dessert for Dame Nellie.
* This is a variation of Escoffier’s famous dessert.
