Soleros are a nice ice cream here in the UK, I like most types which infuse fruit within the ice cream.

Moosey!

Shared? Could not finish it?

Neither of these two things could ever happen to me.

It was just too sweet.
Try the Magnum Almond its the least sweet one. Well it is in NZ and Australia, not sure about UK. Worth a try.

The sweetest one I've ever had is called Memphis meltdown gooey caramel. Hard to top that one on the sweetness scale.

Had some amazing fruit ice cream when in Holland. But I damn well forget what they called it. What I remember was it was considered healthy as far as Ice cream goes and came in a variety of fruit flavours and served in a cone or in a punnet.
Popular in some parts of Europe.

My lifetime forever love will always be Hagen Dazs Rum & Raisin but my current infatuation is Ben & Jerry's Red Velvet Cke!

Darling believe me if it was Cheese or Seafood Hubby would have to fight me for it and it could get ugly !

But my Sweet Tooth is much less developed hence self control is much easier... Hubby has much more a sweet tooth so he tends to help me finish my desserts at the restaurant etc...

Ice Cream is something I will really enjoy once in a while and then I am quite happy if I don't have any for a few months after that.

Now pass those Scallops and were you going to eat that Crab ?!?!.... No crustacean is safe with me in the vicinity. Let's put it that way.

LOL! I'm with you, sweets (no pun intended). I, too, prefer savory over sweet. But I do like a taste of something sweet after my meal and I'm such an overachiever that I make sure that I finish it. So, so, so bad.

One has to excel at something Lovely , for you it's finishing your desserts for me it is pinching seafood out of people's plates by distracting them ! "Oh look is that a Cockatoo on the ceiling?!"...

Hubby always moans that I can quite happily have one square of chocolate/one biscuit and call it a day.

For him the temptation is just too much. I sometimes get annoyed with him because I will buy some chocolate or biscuits , not think about them for weeks, months even then I will go to the kitchen with a momentary craving thinking they are there and "Poof"" they are long gone. Hubby just gives me that look : "What?!?! surely you did not expect them to still be there..." and of course I did.

Marital tension rises , words are exchanged and next thing you know I am trying to avenge myself by having one or two, ( Ok or four) of his fries next time we are out. So far war has not broken out yet but stern comments have been made as to the selfish nature of the Husband who pinches his Wife's half of the chocolate/biscuits !! Reciprocated by words of exasperation as to how said Wife can possibly expect said Husband not to eat said biscuits/chocolates during a certain time frame...

I have been corrected on this forum for my spelling "mistakes" ( theatre, favour, pedagogue, advertise.. etc...) but as English is the language of Steinbeck, Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce as well as that of Shakespeare, Keats and Milton I cannot in good conscience get too offended by being told I cannot spell "English" ! Poppycock and Balderdash !
