Wow. There's something that the Australians do better than anyone else: ice cream. I mean better than the Italians. Ooooh controversial.
In comparison, Baskin Robbins, Haagen Dasz and Ben & Jerry's are like a big canary-yellow tub of Londis Vanilla.
I've just been to an ice cream parlour in Coogee. They have these massive troughs of multicoloured ice cream, all whipped-up until they're falling over in slow motion - huge tumbling quiffs of sugar. I could feel myself turning diabetic as I was looking at them. I think I might have drooled a bit.
A couple of days ago, I bought an icecream from a Mr Whippy van and, before the bloke gave it to me, he dipped the whole ice cream (flake aswell) into a bubbling vat of Ice Magic.
Mmmmm.....80s Ice cream.
Can we have a vote, please, for the best 80s ice cream. My money goes on the Mini Milk.
