Don't read this post. Or at least, don't do it if you have a reputation to uphold. Because, I know, you only like artisanal ice cream (and artisanal coffee, craft beer, artisanal chocolate, artisanal pasta, even artisanal gin, even vermouth).
You are right.
I, too, in the list of resolutions of the beginning of the year, updated month by month, I always aim to eliminate food that expires after five decades, full of dyes and obscenely caloric. Too bad that also this June did not go that much.
Anyone want a potato chip?
One low instinct that I'm afraid I'll never get rid of is the one for i packaged ice cream. Including the wait for the new flavors of the Cornetto with which I do not have a peaceful relationship: I eat it and begin to digest it with a sense of oppression similar - I suppose - to that of the python that the owner ate.
In conclusion, today summer officially returns and they return: cones, sticks, popsicles and sticks to the aftertaste of soap responsible on the tongue of a sensation on the border between pleasure and discomfort: present the shiatsu massages?
Before displaying the rosary of artisanal ice cream without hesitation with the awaited classification of Dissapore, we confess prêt-à-manger, without too much sophistication from gastrofighetti, the insane passion for those made with 10 totems of summer 2016.
But first the special mentions for true evergreens such as: Cremino, Cucciolone, Stecco Ducale, Croccante, Coppa del Nonno and the original versions of Magnum and Cornetto
If you are over twelve years old and you don't feel ridiculous with this long and tight thing in your hands, follow the instructions. It is a bit of a long operation but it deserves it: stick your lips to the raised streaks that would suggest tropical flavors (fruit juice is a measly 7%).
Those are thinner revealing a cylinder of lapping pineapple, which you don't care about. The fun part, a thirst-quenching anti-heat practice, is to suck the strips until they vanish.
9. Strawberry calippo
In the ecumenical version it is lemon-flavored, which becomes lime for those who read the ingredients. Some prefer it to cola, although the best ice stalactite is probably strawberry.
As a cross-generational symbol it has no more secrets: it must be held tightly in your hands so that it can soak a little, thus releasing the sticky sauce to be licked greedily along the edge. Don't pretend to drink it: too loose is frankly terrible.
It was still the eighties when Eldorado, not yet incorporated by Algida, distributed it with a comic similar to the beginning of an adult film. Because that way of eating it, undoubtedly comfortable, has always lent itself to gross double meanings.
Seen packaged is not even worth the price it costs. Once discovered, things change. First of all, is it a cone or a croissant? I can't make up my mind, and every time I eat it due to the very ambiguous features that force the wrist to an equivocal grip so short it is, I don't even know where to look.
Be careful not to start from the tip, you always get your knuckles dirty. The wafer is revisable but with the opulence of what is on it really does anyone care?
7. Strawberry flowers
A non-popsicle popsicle, with a strawberry ice crust that does not yield easily, but when it yields it reveals a creamy filling that does not very much recall the real taste of fruit, sweet as it is, but it is appreciated all the same.
However, the calories are not many, 85. A little sin consumed in a hurry that leaves little sense of guilt, and sometimes, alas, the lower part of the popsicle in hand.
Liuk in the Algida version, Liquì for Motta, simply licorice stick in supermarket brand products. A superclassic, in short. I remind you how to eat in case you have been abstinent for a while.
Keep a piece of wrapping aside and roll it around the edible stick that otherwise, with the warmth of your hands, would become a mess. Don't rush: if the inside is creamy, the rind covered with a thin layer of ice is pretty hard.
Wait a moment and you won't find your tongue sticking to ice cream.
5. Solero Exotic
The best, not even comparable to the bad taste joke that he would like to know about mojito.
The scent is remarkable as the coverage that contrasts with the sweetness of the interior, even excessive. The flavor is an invitation to compulsive licking, the most enjoyable of bar sorbets. Refreshing and thirst-quenching it is great but it slips away without doing too much damage: only 98 calories.
Already defined "the Spa of Italian ice creams".
4. Peanut Butter Love croissant
Tell me that I supinely suffer the fascination of the Americans, yes, tell me, I deserve it. But I have a tremendous effort to be present to myself when peanut butter is involved. It will be the charm of the exotic, which I must tell you.
If you do not want to follow me fearing Yankee colonization, I will understand you, know it, but in the meantime I will continue to sing the praises of this sweet flavor that in a few bites wanders into the salty, in apparent conflict with the covering of chocolate and caramelized pecans. Only apparent, I swear to you.
3. Magnum Double Peanut Butter / Magnum Pink
Refrain skeptical of the sweet dessert. Does it matter to others if the peanuts in one of the best coats around, big, thick chocolate, are only a paltry 3% of the ingredients?
Certainly not to me, since when you say peanut butter I go into Pavlov's dog mode. The packaging is a constant temptation and there are a lot of chocolates here: can you imagine the deforestation of cocoa plantations? You are off track, there is even the chain drawn up.
Special mention for Magnum Pink, bearer of fashionista intuition, a certain amount of courage, and the excellent idea of marrying the taste of raspberry with that of chocolate.
It was the king of summer 2015, beautiful, fragrant, so well made that you can hardly believe it. Too bad, if J-Ax hadn't lent his voice to the Cornetto (monopolizing the radios together with Fedez with "I would like but not place", the official song of the commercial) for Vortici he could have defrosted one of his best hits: Spirale ovale (from Domani Smetto, 2002).
Skin took care of it, and now the refined Vortici Antica Gelateria del Corso, creamy embellished with Perugina chocolate and berry topping at the bottom of the cone, wink through the wide mouth of the Skunk Anansie singer.
1. MAXIBON MOTTA
Okay, the surprise effect is scarce, the "du gust is better than one" biscuit has been a solid certainty for several decades now. But what is my fault if the magic repeats itself every time.
It all starts from the part covered with chocolate, eat it slowly so that the biscuit (the best in its category, moreover, infioriato with stracciatella) and the ice cream reach the right temperature.
After that it's all about munching and enjoying.
As Dan Peterson, an old basketball coach then unsurpassed commentator of games on TV, said: “for me, number one”.
