Fourth we tried Cinnamon & Honey Fried Chicken. This scoop had us the most intrigued from the beginning. The spiced vanilla ice cream was delicious, and the bits of fried chicken croissant added a buttery flavor.

Lastly, we tried a scoop of Chocolate Nocino Cherry Pie. This scoop had flavors that all mixed really well together. The chocolate and cherry are a great match, and those flavors are then elevated further by the brandy. Do you have a favorite flavor?
