Choices For The Freaks Other Than The Cheesecake Icecream

Here are a few of my personal favourite other than the red velvet cheesecake ice cream!

Jeni’s Splendid ice cream: Darkest Chocolate and Salted Caramel- For your chocolate lover. Vibrant dark chocolate flavour, not too creamy, not too sweet. Just perfect! I tried their salted caramel recently. It’s very addictive. Perfectly salted.

Choices Other Than The Red Velvet Cheesecake Icecream

Amorino: Pistachio

I can taste the nutty pistachio flavour, unlike some other ice cream place, where I have to concentrate even to taste the feeling. They also arrange the ice cream to look like a flower, instagramable~

Haagen-Dazs: Matcha

In this life, I have a quest to find the best matcha ice cream. Thus far, no other brands beat Haagen-Dazs matcha ice cream. My Personal Favorite!! It’s also a challenge to find in the supermarket (in the US). They usually re-stock it every 2–3 months, and it’ll be gone real quick.

Maybe there’s a better one in Japan? I’ll have to find out in the future.

Salt and Straw: Lavender

Tried this one during my trip to San Diego, after previously trying three other ice cream on the same day! #IceCreamLife

You will not regret trying this one. Nice flowery flavour, not too sweet and creamy.

Ben and Jerry’s: Mint Chocolate Chip

Let me tell you. Mint flavour ice cream is not supposed to be green! I like Ben and Jerry’s because they don’t use food colouring in their mint chocolate-chip ice cream. Theirs are just plain white, not scary green colour.

An Overall Experience Of An Icecream Freak

My favourite Perry’s Piece of Cake topped with icecream.

Piece of Cake wandered into our home quite a bit after that. Ice cream products that got rejected landed in a giant freezer for employees to take home and share! Sometimes it meant a dented carton. Far more often, it meant the beginning or end of a run or a test run. Too many peanut butter cups? Reject! Not enough cookie dough? Banished! I’m guessing Piece of Cake had some issues, because I know we enjoyed a lot of it. My Dad also knew it was my favourite, and I’m sure he kept an eye open for me!

And that is the story of how I met Perry’s Piece of Cake before most of the population did. It was love at first taste.

Its pleasant taste was simply an echo of the beautiful people who made it. From Brian Perry on down, I never met someone there I didn’t like. The ice cream was their life, and who can’t have fun making ice cream?

My Dad moved on to automation controls for cardboard boxes after Perry’s changed, plant managers. Now we got rejected imperfectly-cut cardboard boxes for every purpose imaginable.

It wasn’t quite as cool.

But those beautiful days when ice cream was something we had to be limited to one giant bowl of a day, and purchasing it was unheard of. The days when a sweet receptionist would page my Dad as soon as she saw my Mom and us kids arrive – and the grand adventures inside a friendly, small-town, incredibly high-quality ice cream plant – those will live on in my heart forever.
