For the final installment of the Ice Cream Trilogy we visited Ice Europa. When we bought our cones from here we were already full after eating at Absynthe bakery across the road, but more on that in a later post. I was feeling a bit too full and thought maybe I should give the ice cream a miss, but damn it...nothing was going to stop me from eating MORE ice cream. The display in the window looked way too inviting to just walk past, and by now I had seen ALOT of ice cream displays.

I went for the coconut and dark chocolate combo, I was aiming for the Bounty of the ice cream world. It was an awesome combination and the coconut ice cream itself tasted like an intense burst of the tropics, I LOVED IT! Sadly.....and not surprisingly, I managed to eat it before taking a photo of it. I think the scenario went a little like this.....camera - right hand, ice cream - left hand.....brain to mouth......"lick camera...take photos with ice cream....hang on that's not right.....oh forget the photos just eat the ice cream!" I did manage to take a couple of snaps of Daz's ice cream. He opted for Kit Kat and Nutella. Oh man did it taste good, the pieces of kit kat were tiny, so you got the full flavour of the kit kat without being distracted by the chewing that is required to eat large chunks of chocolate covered wafers. The Nutella was pretty good too, I know you can get a pretty decent Nutella ice cream pretty much anywhere, but this particular version had generous swirls of Nutella through out the scoop. The calories don't count when your eating someone else's ice cream...right?
Before Daz finished his ice cream, a strange yet cold figure appeared in his ice cream, no it wasn't a vision of the Holy Mary, but it did look human like. It had two eyes, a nose and seemed to be drooling. We decided to call him Squishy, but sadly he didn't hang around for long....Daz decided to end his life before global warming got the better of him. Sad, but someone had to do it.
Ice Cream Monster.....or strange eating technique?
I did a quick google search on Ice Europa and it looks like the Surfers Paradise shop is the only one around. I'm glad I managed to stumble onto it, it was a good way to end the ice cream journey. I hope you all enjoyed reading the Ice Cream Trilogy, I sure did enjoy eating it!
