Sweet Spaghetti

Eating gelato is almost a given on any trip to Italy. And eating ice cream that’s made to look like spaghetti is almost a given (although only God knows how or why that whole thing got started) in Germany.

On our visit to South Tyrol, we found a cafe that took those things to a whole new level. We stopped for a drink and a scoop of ice cream at a cafe in Toblach, and while perusing the more than ten-page menu of ice cream options, we found this…

This was by far one of the most impressive selections of spaghetti Eis that I’ve seen yet. BV was sorely tempted by the hazelnut offering, whereas I was intrigued by the faux ‘Pesto’ featuring pistachio-flavored ice cream. Unfortunately neither of us was hungry enough to tackle an ice cream mountain that day. Perhaps on the next trip!

  1. Oh man… I love Südtirol… and Italian ice cream even more so… I never knew how spoilt we were in regards to the latter in Bavaria until I moved country. The ice cream situation in Central Spain is terrible, it’s all bloody Nestle factory churned fluffed-up plastic. Urgh.
