The Pity of Ice Cream in America

July 17, 2010

It’s been about 2 weeks now since I’ve been in Portland. And it’s summer time (although it was warmer in Buenos Aires than in Portland for the first week) so ice cream is important. But the quality here, even from the famed Tillamook dairy is pitiful. Compared to Persicco, Freddo, Ducco, Tuyu and my other favorites in Argentina, the creaminess is not there, the sweetness is not there and the expression is not there. Ice cream here is dull and listless and really dissappointing!

Beer however… ROCKS!

    I agree wholeheartedly. I tell my friends it is worth a trip to BA just to eat ice cream. At least you can find decent gelatti in Vancouver, BC, which is only a few hours from my home.

    I never really knew ice cream until i came to buenos aires. I don’t know if i could return to a world where sambayon ice cream isnt available for delivery to my home at all hours of the day and night.

      Again, great comment. I have been up here in the U.S. for a month, and ice cream is just sad. Ben and Jerry’s is about the best you can do, but the creaminess, the richness is just not there.
