Yes, ice cream is definitely something to be grateful for!

It's not easy taking a selfie while you eat ice cream.
(This image was taken in Varadero, Cuba in April where we ate a lot of ice cream. Shamelessly.)

Do you like ice cream? What are some of your favourite flavours?

  3. I love ice cream! Chocolate chip mint or in a pinch any flavor will do. Chocolate is usually it.

    Thanks!

  4. Who isn't a fan of ice cream (well perhaps someone who's lactose intolerant). One of my favorite flavors is Breyers Heath Bar Vanilla. Um, yum !
    Since the USA has re-establish diplomatic ties with Cuba, I expect the island will be seeing a resurge in their tourism. I'm looking forward to when Florida has reinstated their ferry services from Florida to Cuba. The island looks to be full of Caribbean charm and you appear to be having a wonderful time.

    1. You will LOVE Cuba. The people are so warm and friendly, and there is so much to see and do. Not to mention the most beautiful beaches; white sand and turquoise water!

  5. You and your sweetie sure know how to live happily. Do they have gelato too there? You got me thinking about my favorite shop - a candy and gelato place - in Chico. Must buy some happiness there soon. It's been a whole week or so. Smiles.

  16. I love ice creams. Chocolate, rocky road (marshmallow & nuts), mango and cheese are my favorite flavors. By the way, in Taiwan they eat ice cream with coriander. In Russia I've seen people eating pistachio. And in China, I have tried mung bean ice cream. In Philippines we have chili ice cream like in Mecico. Have you tried any of those?

    1. I haven't even heard of almost all of these! I wonder how they taste. Ice cream with pistachio can be found here but the others are unfamiliar. It's amazing what flavours different areas will create. Ice cream is quite popular.
