    ALSOOO I EAT APPLE/PEAR CORES/SEEDS TOOOOOOO. it originated from laziness…what?! walking all the way to the bin!?? but look! i have my own garbage disposal unit right here…it is called my stomach! in it goes! hoorah!

  2. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh my god…I have an ice cream maker and I’m thinking I need to try and recreate some of these flavours. I know they won’t be as great as theirs but it must be fun to try! 😛

  3. BitterSweet

    Oh, luscious! Green tea and white chocolate together in one cup sounds like the best combo scoop ever. Reminds me of when I went to Italy a life time ago, before I was vegan; I think that all I ate was pasta and gelato for a week!

    L-Izzle: I do but live to serve you. 😀 Exactly! But now it’s not so much a waste-laziness thing as a waste-of-a-good-piece-of-fruit thing, and I actually DO NOT UNDERSTAND when I see people throw out cores, particularly *full* cores!

    Lorraine: I think yours will be better, because they’ll be made with that special Lorraine-magic, and will probably end up with crystallised flowers or gnomes or edible underwear or something decorating them 😛

    Bittersweet: I think that’s the way most of us do Italy… but I forgot to say in this post, and shall endeavour to do so in another, I actually found vegan gelato, and not just sorbet, either!

    I’m a sucker for Green Tea … but I’m not sure about the combo with chocolate. But, the Meringa, now you’re talking! That sounds divine…

    I LOVE your heading!

    Dare I be cheeky and say that it reminds me of the pre-Easter boozy Camille Bloch easter eggs I raved about:
    “Now liqueur and chocolate seems to divide people as much as ginger and chocolate does, but I’ve always loved the combination ever since the first time I tried a cherry liqueur from a Red Tulip assorted box in the 1970s. I coughed ’til I blushed but I like ‘em like I do my men: Long, Cool and Strong. Still do.”

    Whisperinggums: You would have liked it – the chocolate wasn’t much flavourwise, more just textural. (I don’t think that was the intention, though!) Now, just think, we could be having Meringa right now were you not so anti-appliances.

    Kath: Oh noes, I hope you don’t think I’m being a copycat! I’ve had that title in my head ever since I had the first gelato weeks ago :S (I also had a flip version – I like my gelato like I don’t like my men: frigid and upsetting to my tummy :P)

  8. Laura @ Hungry and Frozen

    Love your title! I am such an ice cream fiend, this post is making me want to pack it all in and spend my days trawling from gelateria to gelateria. The meringa one looks particularly fabulous. And yes, I definitely think that ‘dark’ can be a legit flavour 🙂

  9. Simply Life

    I love gelato and that looks like the perfect combo of flavors!

  10. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL you make me laugh Hannah re. “will probably end up with crystallised flowers or gnomes or edible underwear or something decorating them :P” Yes probably! How about crystallised gnomes in edible underwear? 😉

  11. Hannah

    Laura: Riffing on what you said in your most recent post… we both need to find publications willing to pay for us to travel and eat and write about it forever and ever amen! Packing up and spending a year gelateria-ing would be heaven…

    Simply Life: I don’t know if strawberry and licorice is a classic combination, but it worked for me!

    Lorraine: Those are the only kind of gnomes I’m going to countenance from now on 😀

  12. Kath Lockett

    Of course I don’t think you’re a copycat – I was more thinking ‘great minds think alike’ !

  13. Hannah

    Kath: I can only aspire to your level of greatness! (And free chocolate-getting :P)

  14. Emily

    Oh I am so happy you went to Vivoli! Love it there
    *cue happy memories*

  15. Hannah

    Emily: When you’d talked of it so highly, how could I not? If only we could truly make a montage of our combined memories 😀

  16. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh. My. Goodness, that Meringa! I never got to try such a thing…but then again, I am a little too easily seduced by anything Nutella or Kinder.

  17. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    (PS—I love your title to this entry)

  18. Hannah

    Amber: We all have our food temptation weak spots! Mine (gelato-wise) are anything chestnut or pistachio. And thanks 😀

  19. croquecamille

    Yay for gelato! Yay for Grom! (I had the pear sorbet in torino, and enjoyed it very much) Yay for meringue and chocolate in ice cream! Yay for working internet!

    Camille: *waves excitedly* I second all your yays, and add YAY for Camille being back! 😀

    […] Happily, the above three products didn’t make me regret parting with the monies. I remember falling in love with Twin Oaks tofu when I was on student exchange at UVA (it’s local to the Virginia area), and this Spicy Thai flavour was pleasant. Annie’s Whole Wheat Bunnies proved just the salty crispy goodness that I needed after too much nookie (the peanut butter, people; I’m talking about the peanut butter), and the So Delicious Turtle Trails (fellow non-Americans, this means “caramel sauce and chocolate-coated praline pecans in vanilla coconut milk non-dairy frozen dessert”) ice cream was the best frozen dessert I’ve had since, well, Florence.
