Summers bring with them an inexplicable feeling of nostalgia. What best way to indulge in them except your favourite cup of ice-cream. Gone are the days when ice-creams have variety only in flavour, one can enjoy them in various textures from all around the world. Here are some amazing creations from around the world.
The world's most favourite kind of ice cream, it's no surprise it made it to this list. But you will peev off Italians if you mistakenly call gelato an ice cream. Though it's similar the Italians do them differently. A gelato is denser and creamier than regular ice-cream, but it has more milk and less fat or cream which makes it a tad healthier if you are counting calories. Also, the milk gives it more room for flavours and textures.

Japan: Mochi Ice-cream

Not only does it sound like spaghetti but also resembles it in its look. Vanilla ice-cream is made to pass through a pasta maker to resemble pasta and is topped with strawberry sauce to mimic tomato sauce and almond flakes and white chocolate are used to mimic parmesan cheese. Not surprisingly this dish is created by an Italian Dario Fontanella who wanted to make a dessert that represented his heritage. It was created in Mannheim in 1969.
