I just read back over my last post and realized I never did report back on Paris’s famous Berthillon’s Ice Cream. We all agreed their reputation is merited, at least if one goes to their actual store on the Ile de St. Louis as opposed to ordering it from a restaurant that carries their brand. It’s made fresh daily at their own store, and the texture of the chocolate there was perhaps the best we’ve found. Some of the Florence gelaterias had more intense flavor, but Berthillon’s holds its own when it comes to pure decadence. (Which is a good thing, since it’s on the expensive side!) Do make a stop there if you ever do your own ice cream tour!
