With summer creeping around the corner, I’m sure the same thing is on everyone’s mind. This may be the beach or a killer suntan, however the main thing that comes to my mind is that creamy, frosty, delectable treat that goes by the names ice cream, or gelato, or even custard.
Located a few blocks from DesignDesign is a local homemade Ice Cream Shoppe called La Michoacana. Here they offer over 50 various exotic flavors to satisfy anyone’s individual preference. Rotated on a weekly basis, the flavors range from corn (sprinkled with your choice of cinnamon or chile), rice pudding, avocado, tamarind, cheesecake, and eggnog to name a few. If La Michoacana does not carry a flavor you have in mind, they are very welcoming to new and creative ideas and they just might have it on your next visit!
Hundreds of creative flavors can be found all over the world. A few that I found interesting from other countries are as follows:
- Spaghetti & Cheese Ice Cream from Venezuela
- Spleen & Artichoke Ice Cream from Italy
- Octopus Ice Cream from Japan
- Goat Ice Cream from Asia
- Caviar Ice Cream from France
- Chili Pepper Ice Cream from Singapore
- And much more bizarre flavors.
Many of these flavors may not be appealing too most; however, these are delicacies in many countries. Whatever your preference, get out this summer season and treat yourself to some ice cream. Also, if you really want to splurge, go to NYC for a $25,000 sundae! The sundae includes 28 cocoas that are infused with five grams of edible 23-karat gold and served in a goblet lined with edible gold. The customers also get to keep an 18-karat gold bracelet with diamonds and the gold and diamond-crusted spoon and goblet set.
