"The best ice cream in the world" - New York Times. With praise like that, we had to find out for ourselves whether or not it was the best in the world. We have yet to travel around the world, so I don't know if we would be qualified to back this claim. Toscanini's is located very close to MIT and Harvard. All of these geeks and geniuses can't be wrong. I think our IQ raised a point just being in this area.
We each ordered a double scoop of ice cream so that we could try a variety of flavor samplings. Toscanini's flavors are not your normal Rite-Aid flavors (nothing against Rite-Aid), but offers unique and strange flavor combinations. On the right is the blueberry and orange flavor and underneath it is ginger snap molasses. On the left is a chocolate and coconut combination and underneath that is hazelnut coffee. We both really enjoyed the flavors that we sampled that night. The ice cream was not as texturally smooth as I imagined it to be. This may be due to the fact that we just had some fantastic gelato at Il Laboratorio Del Gelato in New York and was comparing gelato to ice cream. Overall, the ice cream was very, very good. I don't know about "best ice cream in the world" good, but very good nonetheless.
