Ok... so my favorite flavor is.... ROSE! hahahahahaha! That REALLY makes me laugh! But it's true.
Last weekend, at my sister's bridal shower, we drank three awesome wines at the wine shop where we threw the shower. Among them was the most amazing wine called Villa M Rosso. It smelled of roses and then when I inhaled on the first sip I TASTED the roses!!! But this was not my first "taste" of this oh-so-decadent flower. My first taste of rose was in the form of gelato.
My husband and I were shopping at our local Whole Foods (you KNOW how I love that place) and walked past the gelato case. Now I LOVES me the gelato but have a tendency to shy away from the typical flavors (i.e. chocolate and lemon) and I RUN from artificially flavored gelatos, so Whole Foods is my only source for my beloved dessert that I rarely indulge when I find the same ol', same ol'. NOT THIS TIME!!! Super sonic high five is a-comin!!! White Rose Gelato??? Yep, they were serving white rose gelato and it's FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!!! Apparently it's all natural, made with REAL white rose petals and is made locally! WOW! Did I hit the jackpot or what!?! And, I honestly never thought I would ever be telling anyone that my favorite flavor is "rose". That sounds almost as absurd to me as saying that my favorite flavor is pink! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Anyway, the next time you are presented with an opportunity to sample ANYTHING containing rose petals, please know that more and more rose flavored goodies are making their way to the top of my high five list! It's sooooo worth a try!
***Side bar: I used to be one of those girls who didn't really like getting flowers.... BRING ME ROSES... LOTS AND LOTS OF ROSES!!!
