My plan was to walk from Jardin des Plantes to Île Saint-Louis to get our Berthillon fix on our last day in Paris. Unfortunately the rain started so we had to walk to the metro and get off by the Île. Since this was not our usual way of coming to the Île Saint-Louis, we stopped at stand that we thought we had their Ice cream and sorbet before. The guy behind the counter was not friendly at all. I asked if I could sample a flavor and he said no!! I don’t remember if we had samples at Berthillon before. How are you suppose to try new flavors? Their price was high and the scoops on the small side. Later on, as we walked around, we saw our usual Berthillon spot. Oh well, you can’t have it all.
I picked this flavor for my husband and it was outstanding. It was like biting into the most flavorful passion fruit.
Dark Chocolate and Cassis
Since I could not sample any flavors, I stuck to my usual flavors. It did not disappoint. The dark chocolate was of high quality and the cassis was really tart and delicious.
