Every time I go home to Virginia to visit with my parents and family, I have but one request: Please make sure the fridge is stocked with Gelati Celesti ice cream.
You may not realize this, but Richmond, Virginia is home to the greatest ice cream in the world. It’s not gelato, despite the name. It’s rich, delicious ice cream, and it’s amazing.
When I was home for Christmas, I ate copious amounts of Gelati Celesti. (As I write that sentence, I realize that I just wrote about eating copious amounts of ice cream in Japan on a blog post a few days ago…I’m sensing a pattern here. Maybe my subconsciousness is telling me that I need to buy some ice cream.) I tried more flavors than I usually do, knowing that I would soon be back in St. Louis, hundreds of miles away from the best frozen milk known to man.
I’m writing this entry because I suspect that you have an undisputed favorite ice cream too. I’d love to hear what it is, and then I encourage you to immediately drive to Virginia to eat Gelati Celesti so you can comprehend how good it is.
