Vermont is known for ice cream but NYC is known for Italian Ices. There are plenty of great local companies. The Lemon Ice King of Queens, Rita's of NJ and being a Staten Islander my favorite is Ralph's.
The clods in Vermont can have stupid hippie ice cream made by pot heads, but smarter types take the NYC product.
My parents like pistaschio and I keep them happy with a few servings. I get whatever suits my fancy and toss it way deep in the freezer for a rainy day or post fast dessert. Well I found the chocolatte mousse which is excellent and considered by locals to be their best. I had a bit put it back in the freezer to find the senior citizens had discovered it. Obviously, I will have to order more as it seems to be a big hit. The local branch was out of Key Lime.
The fast was easy.
