And the ice-cream tastes?
Now it is neccessary to talk a bit about the tastes.
Since there is so many tastes to choose from, I can't possibly list them all here and explain what they are. Some gelati have names like "Banana" or "Cioccolato", and those are easy, but here I'll give some very basic tastes that have italian names.
Fior di Latte.
The word "Fior" di means literally "Flower of..", and it's meaning is: "The best of....". So if you buy ice-cream with the title Fior di Latte or Fior di Panna, you are buying ice-cream made of the best parts of milk or cream. That is almost the same as vanilla, but even better, if you ask me.
Stracciatella is an ice-cream with white, creamy base and small, tasty chips and drops of chocolate inside the ice-cream. Very good!
Crema is not cream. Cream in italian is panna, but crema means caramelle. This taste of ice-cream is very delicious, in my opinion!
The word means orange. This ice-cream is quite sparky, but it's very tasty and refreshing in a hot summer day!
