Green & Blacks Dark Chocolate or Chocolate & Orange. I rarely eat chocolate but these, on a hot day, turn me into a drooling monster :D

Haagen Dazs. Coffee, German chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, it's all yummy.

But a smaller, local brand?! Marianne's in Santa Cruz. YUMMMY! Green leaf tea ice cream.

By the way, check your local Baskin Robbins... in my area, Tuesdays you can get scoops for only $1 each! :eek: :D

Cold Stone and local dairy

Everything at Cold Stone but especially the Mint, mint, chocolate, chocolate chip. Ane always up for trying local dairies tht make their own regionally. I've had lots of great ice cream that way too.

PS isn't Matamata home of the hobbits. :D
Great Peterkro, Kapiti cheeses are always on my shop list too. And the hobbits very well could hale from Matamata, but Weta and 3 foot 6, are Wellington to me. On another aside, why to the overseas press talk of WETA, like it's a mnemonic? Everyone should know of our neat little prehistoric insect. They are adorable.

I have recently become addicted to Apple Pie a la Coldstone (Creamery).

Although Lee's Chocolate Chip is darn fine, too.

Weta = Miramar

No, there's still a little left. As Peter J and the nob co-horts have a lot of Seatoun under their little hobbit belts though. And the minions are right into Mapuia. Heard recently that with Interlock Industries moving off shore, he's to buy that site. Just in from the cutting if you recall. Weta has opened their new custom built home at the end of Park. A little too Hollywood for my architectural tastes.
Until the end of last year I lived on Park Road for 15 years and before that, on Akaroa, up on the hill. Small world (a la Hobbiton) I had a PM from Blue Velvet, who's in London, and she lived in the next suburb from where I am now, and we had mutual friends.
Cheers,
Grey Beard

Peanut Butter...

Peanut Butter makes just about anything better. :)

Haven't tried peanut butter in an ice cream Emerson. But in NZ we did make a curry ice cream to export to Fiji. Oh and I love homemade with real liqueurs, but then you don't take alcohol. Shame.
