East Coast Roadtrip: Leopold's Ice Cream

After doing a bit of food research online, did you know that Tutti Frutti flavour was invented in Savannah?  Who knew?  And one of the original’s of Tutti Frutti ice cream is Leopold’s Ice Cream, an institution in Savannah, Georgia.  When we arrived in Savannah, we headed to Leopold’s and you know the ice cream must be good when you see a line up out the door and down the street.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen this long of a line for ice cream so you know I’m a glutton for punishment and patiently waited for a taste of Savannah’s favourite.  I wasn’t sure what to expect with Tutti Frutti ice cream but taking one bite made me think of Spumoni flavoured ice cream.  You know, the italian ice cream flavour made with layers of cherry, chocolate and pistachio ice creams with candied fruits and nuts that no one buys other than my parents.  It really brought me back to my childhood since my parents constantly had a 2 litre tub of spumoni in the freezer and as a kid, it really wasn’t my favourite ice cream – note to all the parents out there, if you want your kid to eat less ice cream, buy spumoni 🙂
