This sounds like a cool book, but…

$60 for a 187 page paperback?!?

No wonder my library doesn’t have it.

So many fun facts that I didn’t know! But if the US is second in worldwide per capita consumption, who is #1?

New Zealand consumes the most ice cream per capita.

. . . nearly 300 libraries DO have it, so get it through interlibrary loan!

I remember seeing something about Turkish ice cream on one of the PBS travel shows. They made it sound like it was pretty much the best thing ever.

We had some Hazelnut flavored Turkish Ice Cream in Osaka that was pretty good. The vendor made a big production out of pulling it with his paddle. It wasn’t as chewy as I thought it was going to be. The flavor and sweetness was subtle- perhaps tailored for the Japanese pallet (gosh I miss not very sweet desserts).

There are ice cream SCIENTISTS? Clearly, I’ve spent all these years pursuing the wrong profession.
