So I know this blog is meant to be all about applique and quilting but today I just had to write about ice-cream, specifically ice-cream in New Zealand, and more specifically Pokeno ice-cream! Anyone in NZ will know exactly what I am talking about!
For those unenlightened ones, Pokeno is a tiny little town just off the freeway on the way to NZ's biggest city, Auckland. It is famous for ice-cream cones and is a must-stop every single time you go to Auckland. I used to get a double scoop...one scoop rum and raisin, one scoop apricot and chocolate dipped. Yummo!!These photos are of my beautiful niece Mona-Jane and my extremely handsome nephew Maihi with an 11 scoop - yes that's right, ELEVEN scoop ice cream at Pokeno! And the cost? 8 bucks. Now here in NH you go to the local ice-cream stand in the Summer and get one scoop for $2.50...you do the math! And these cones are double cones - it branches out at the top of the cone, so there are 2 holes instead of one, which is something I don't think I've see here in the States. Please let me know if you've seen any!
So look and enjoy and book your plane tickets for NZ lol!!
