Dessert Diaries: Neapolitan

When you think of classic ice cream flavours, which come to mind? Chocolate? Vanilla? What about Strawberry? So where does this put Neapolitan? It’s the delicious combination of all three.

I still get taken aback … Continue reading #10daysofhalloween: The 1975’s Matty Healy
