    Basin-Robbins that wasn’t. (What the heck is spumoni any way?)

    Spumoni.. ah.. haven’t had that in years. It’s usually 3 layers of different flavors: chocolate, cherry and pistachio. Usually there’s candied fruit and/or nuts in it as well. Yum.

    Spumone, plural spumoni, is a molded Italian ice cream made with layers of different colors and flavors, usually containing candied fruits and nuts. Typically it is of three flavors, with a fruit/nut layer between them. / Wikipedia

    Spumoni is one of those “invented” flavors, for when folks get tired of actual flavors.

    Not sure, but on my tiny screen, the one between ‘banana’ and ‘licorice’ looks like a HAZ-MAT symbol. Just saying….

    Every good shop has at least one flavor that if you have to ask, you don’t want it. I remember working in a coffee place that had a flavor called fog lifter. A regular 10 cup glass carafe of the stuff had a 2 in slick of thick oil on top and it smelled like an ashtray. We had to stir it with a glass rod before pouring each cup. It was completely nasty, but every Monday, we’d sell gallons of it.

    I love chocolate with peanut butter chunks and triple chocolate overload or death by chocolate. Sometimes it’s so hard to pick only one flavour in these places. But my dad would take us to Baskin-Robbins and while my brother and I were checking out all the flavours, my dad would order vanilla for himself.

    Ahhh: Spumoni. Back in the day, a person could get the best Spumoni at the Pizza Kings in Brookings.
