Gorgeous ice cream at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie!

It's ice cream festival time at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie. We enjoyed the Hot Chocolate festival last year, and used it as an excuse for driving lessons for Catriona. Well, she's close to winning her licence, and the boys haven't started learning yet ... So no special excuses for a drive.

We decided our TWENTIETH wedding anniversary, coming up in a few days, was a perfectly great excuse.

Here we see a "flight" of seven flavours to enjoy. Some highlights here - the pale pink is Moscato Sorbet. Wow, that's a fabulous sorbet. Smooth and alcoholic, quite a flavour punch. The one at the bottom with chocolate on top is espresso. We instinctively left this one for last, it was real coffee. The green one is mint Choc chip - fabulous of course, but a bit too strong in the mint today. Chocolate honeycomb with lavender in the middle was... perhaps not for me. Berry sorbet, the dark pink. Very nice indeed. We had rum and raisin - very rummy indeed. With that and the moscato, you need to make sure the driver doesn't have too much! Finally there was crunchy donuts. No, I don't know what I was expecting from that flavour. It was celebrating the crunchy sugar on top of donuts I think!

How cool is this presentation! A flight of seven ice creams is $12, quite a treat. The ice cream festival goes on until the end of the month.
