Ice Cream in Luperon

Typical that I am stuffing my face with ice cream!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice cream! One of my favorite deserts, and now 'cheat' snacks because of my diet is ICE CREAM! 🍦 When we left the states we stocked our freezer with a few gallons, then in the Bahamas we splurged for pints, and now here in the DR there is an ice cream shop right in town!

For 40 pesos (less than 1 USD) you can get a medium waffle cone with 2 scoops of ice cream. What?!?! When I learned this back in April I thought "good thing we don't live closer!" Then a few weeks ago a man came through the marina with his motorcycle and there was a cooler of ice cream on the back. He was selling single scoop cones for 25 pesos!

As much as I would love to go into town every day to get an ice cream, we do the best we can to show self restraint. We only have it as a special snack maybe once a week when we are passing through town. Last week on our way back from Paradise Island we stopped for an ice cream treat and enjoyed it in the park.

So what’s your favorite flavor? I tend to stick with chocolate here in the DR because I don’t know enough Spanish to differentiate the other flavors! 🤣
