ice cream

An interesting yet mostly-cliché article about Dubai over here; except for this little paragraph….

"Life is sweet here. New arrivals at the spotless Dubai International Airport are sometimes greeted with free tubs of Baskin-Robbins ice cream to soften the shock of the sweltering heat."

Never heard of that happening before; but it’s definitely a positive thing.

Aside from double chocolate chip ice cream; some people may find this report, entitled “United Arab Emirates: International Religious Freedom Report 2006” interesting

Maybe the ice-cream can keep everyone quite for a while.

My favourite ice cream, I spend a fortune on it - and I've never been given a free tub :-(

Nah, I'm definitely more a Haagen-Dazs person, I need my super-premium ice cream with no artificials.

Green & Blacks Orange Chocolate is also amazing.

Hey SD,

There is an ice cream parlour in Karama called Naturals. They are a part of a restaurant called Govinda's.

The ice cream served in Naturals is the best thing you would have ever had. It uses real fruits and no artificial flavours. Do give it a try. I have tried Haagen-Dazs, Baskin Robbins and London Dairy. So far Naturals tops my list.

Healthy ic cream? Isn't that an oxymoron?

A Baskin Robbins Praline & Cream or Gold Medal Ribbon isn't eaten because it's healthy - if I want healthy I'll chew on a carrot!
