Where to Find the Best Ice Cream in the World

blog_1_HeroImage.jpg (75)Ice cream is one of the world’s best loved frozen desserts, with a wealth of flavours from your basic vanilla to decadent chocolate and with many flavours in between. If you’re a fan of ice cream (and, let’s face it, who’s not?) then we have got news for you from the recent Ice Cream World Tour Finals, which saw a selection of ice creams from across the globe put through their paces with the goal of crowning one ice cream the frozen-dessert champion!

After several rigorous rounds, 36 ice creams were selection for the final judging, which assessed taste, structure and presentation. So, who was crowned the winner...?

None other than the iconic Gelateria Crispini in Spoleto (Umbria), which is the brainchild of Alessandro Crispini – one of Italy’s most respected ice-cream creators.

Crispini is well known for their range of decadent ice-cream flavours, including chocolate fondent, Kinder Surprise flavour and “cremino”, which is vanilla and chocolate ice cream swirled together with gianduja chocolate chunks and topped with toasted hazelnuts. However, the ice cream crowned champion at the Ice Cream World Tour Finals was actually Crispini’s modest pistachio-flavoured gelato.

While this may seem like un unremarkable flavour in comparison to some of the more elaborate ice-cream flavours available, the judges admired the quality of Crispini’s winning flavour, which he attributed to his special blend of three varieties of Sicilian pistachio (two from Bronte and one from Agrigentino), to which he added a dash of Cervia salt to enhance the wow of the flavour.

Commenting on his win, Alessandro Crispini noted:

“Pistachio might seem like a boring taste, but through in-depth study of the raw materials, I created something just seemingly simple ... I'm honored to be appreciated!”
