Ice Cream with Azorean flavors


A bucket of ice cream is the perfect way to celebrate happy moments (or to forget the sad ones). And, if before we had to look for big brands as Hood or Friendly's in the supermarket, in the Azores we can go "Atlantic" and find truly Azorean flavors with Quinta dos Açores.

The idea is to communicate the Azorean cuisine through unique and high-quality ice creams. How do you feel about trying ice cream inspired in typical flavors from the Azores? To milk and fresh cream, Quinta dos Açores added different flavors, such as D. Amélia – a pastry from Terceira made in honor of the Portuguese Queen Amélia -, Queijada da Graciosa – a traditional star-shaped pastry from Graciosa Island and sweet pineapple from the Azores. Between the 18 flavors, you may also find strawberry, chocolate and mint, passion fruit, chocolate with hazelnut and marshmallows or cookies.

This ‘Azorean Farm”, in Angra do Heroísmo, in Terceira Island, also produces milk, yogurt and cheese, embracing the Azorean origins and reinforcing the best that the region has. If you’re around, make sure you will visit the “Farmer’s Market” where you can try everything that they produce as well as other typical Azorean products.

A cool and cold way to travel between the flavors of these nine wonderful islands.(And word has it they are eyeing the US market too!)
