Double Scoop of Lavender???

So far I have tried 16 flavors of gelato. I have tried all the usual flavors, chocolate chip, pistachio, strawberry, etc. I have yet to make it to the strange ones, lavender, red wine, hazelnut, etc. The main difference between gelato and ice cream is in the name. Ice cream is made with cream and gelato is made with milk (latte, the 'lato part). Every Italian of every age loves gelato. It is not hard to become a fan as there is a gelateria on every corner that each make it homemade and fresh everyday. This picture is a three layer gelato experience: raspberry, dark chocolate, coconut. They will do this for you if you can not settle on one flavor. The other photo is of the line of people waiting to get their favorite flavor. It was taken in the middle of the day on a week day in the middle of February. Just think what a hot summer weekend is like...
