I don’t usually do best of lists, because…well, many reasons. But this turned into something of a project over the course of the year, a thing I devoted myself to beyond all boundaries, seeking the most distant stores to acquire that which was not close to hand. Thus, I present you with this list:
SOME TALENTI GELATO FLAVORS ELISE TRIED IN 2014
We did it for science, they will say.
We went to Target for exclusive flavors! We were denied the miracle that must be Old World Eggnog, but shall continue that search throughout holiday season.
We loved Caramel Cookie Crunch and still cannot figure out Banana Chocolate Swirl — though suspect it needs a much more generous ribbon of caramel running through it. Sea Salt Caramel is a frozen revelation, and Fudge Brownie should have been better. Southern Butter Pecan? Gonna make you swoon. Tahitian Vanilla Bean? Sometimes you want something simple and deep.
Bottom line: gelato is not a terrible thing, even when it’s weird. Eat more gelato. Read more books. Goodnight! ♥
