Ice Cream

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 28 January 2012 | Views [373]

Argentina is the country of ice cream; parlours carry about 40 flavours on average and light weights (but not for long, ha ha) may take a cone, whilst the serious Argentinian will buy a tub, which is sold in 1/4, 1/2 or 1 kilo. Considering it my duty as a travellor to immerse myself in the local culture, I have been ordering 1/4 kilo tubs, which can pack in 3 flavours, and have diligently sampled the range.  
There is no fixed time for ice cream, it can be taken pre breakfast (about 7.a.m.)  through until post dinner (about 1.a.m.) and there is no perception that it is the food of children as groups of youths, families and friendship groups of all ages gather at the parlours to indulge their love of its creamy goodness.
