Cold Comfort

We've noticed that Seattlites don't just love coffee. This ice cream shop and several others around town are popular hang outs after a big fall game on a chill autumn evening. This couple has managed to beat the usual crowd. Her gloves ought to help her enjoy a cold treat. Informal survey: if you mix "goodies" into your scoop, what is your favorite combination?

A paris, sur l'ile de la cité, il existe les meilleurs glaces de france "chez berthillon' (il y a souvent beaucoup de monde). ce que je prefere c'est citron et melon.

With Paris, on the island of the city, there are best the ices of France “at berthillon' (there are often many people). what I prefer they are lemon-yellow and melon.

Good one!
Mine is chocolate ice cream with a shot of strong espresso coffee!
Do they make good coffee at Starbucks in Seattle by the way?

Starbucks Mud Pie...

Is that a cold stone?

My favorite is:
coffee ice cream mixed with cream cheese or vanilla bean ice cream and granola and graham crackers.

Olivier, j'ai adore la baie la glace Berthillon parfumée que j'avais du magasin sur Ile Sainte-Louis. C'était magnifique et je peux voir pourquoi les Parisiens l'aiment si! Pouvez-vous acheter des marques américaines comme La glace de Ben & Jerry aux magasins dans Evry?

Kala, Thank you! Hey, what does autumn feel like in Honolulu? I imagine tourists still go for shave ice.

Jazzy, yum! yum! yum!

Lachezar, do you put the espresso directly on the ice cream, or drink it on the side? Seattle is the home city of Starbucks and I've lost count of just how many of them there are within the city. The quality is fairly uniform between them I think, but there are many other kinds of coffee shops here, some of which offer much better coffee.
It's a little rediculous just how many coffee places there are in Seattle.

John, where does one get that flavor ice cream. I haven't seen it featured in any of the shops we frequent.

Photowannabe, oh my--both?

Rodney, yes it is. Another shop here that puts about anything you could think of into their scoops is known as "The Mix" and it's independent. Wow, I've never heard of cream cheese mixed in. .. sounds awesome.

Vanilla base with snickers mixed in, yum!

Gee, Rodney is a connoisseur; he must live in Seattle. I say cinnamon or French vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and snickers.... or banana ice cream with hot fudge... or hot fudge neat.

Meg Nakagawa said...

Hot fudge with sponge cake, hot fudge with brownies, hot fudge on wooden spoon. Yikes, this word verification just doesn't want me to talk about hot fudge. Can I say mud pie, then? Oh, do I have to have ice cream in the mix?

Meg Nakagawa said...

(hot fudge on Reese's peanut butter cup...)

Kim said...

Mike- A classic!

Meg- Hot fudge NEAT. . .I'm with YOU! ;^) Girl, 3 posts about hot fudge. . .you're obsessing. A 12 step group is the next stop. Warning, warning, danger Will Robinson. . . Try some peach or berry ice cream from Berthillon's in Paris. It will cure you.

Kim - I mix in Cream Cheese or Cheese Cake Ice Cream. It seems to blend well with the coffee ice cream.
