Ice creams and gelatos I love

Those who know me, know how much I love ice-cream.  Last week-end in New York, I had a chance of visiting 
il laboratorio dei gelato (95 Orchard Street - Lower East Side), a gelateria that was on my wish list ever since I read an article on how Jon Snyder (founder of Ciao Bella where my wife and I used to go when we lived in the city) was creating some very unique flavors. I end up tasting toasted sesame, amareto crunch and lime fresh mint.  Absolutely fantastic!

Here is my list of great ice-creams and gelatos that I have tasted over the years (in no particular order)...

Gelateria di Piazza (San Gimignano, Italy)
Maison Berthillon (Paris)
Ben & Jerry's Factory (Waterbury, Vermont)
Ferris Acres Creamery (Newtown, Connecticut)
Mil Frutas (Ipanema, Rio)
Freddo (Buenos Aires)
Persicco (Buenos Aires)
Gelateria del Teatro (Rome)

If you know of any other great ice-cream parlors please let me know.

I love icecream too! I've been in "Gelateria del Teatro", which has a giant cone indicating its tiny entrance with small tables outside. Try the "Bancha green tea home-made icecream" from Shintori restaurant (Brazil, Alameda Campinas), "Il Super Mago del Gelo" in Polignano a Mare, Puglia region (known as the best icecream from southern Italy).
