Creamy licks rated highly

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Three Cen­tral Otago ice cream shops have been named in New Zealand’s top 10 by the world’s largest travel web­site, TripAd­vi­sor.

The par­lours have been ranked ac­cord­ing to the TripAd­vi­sor Pop­u­lar­ity In­dex, which takes qual­ity, quan­tity and re­cent reviews from TripAd­vi­sor into ac­count.

Cho­co­lates Patag­o­nia, in Queen­stown, was ranked No 5.

Founded in 2010 by Ale­jan­dro Giminez, the par­lour serves a range of cho­co­lates, desserts, ice cream and cof­fee.

‘‘We had ice cream here to­day and loved the flavours and creamy tex­ture! The scoop size was great and lo­ca­tion by the lake is al­ways nice,’’ one re­view said. Wanaka’s Black Peak Gelato was ranked No 7. The company was brought to Aus­trala­sia more than 70 years ago from Tus­cany.

‘‘The ice cream here is made by the owner and it is de­li­cious. We ac­tu­ally went a cou­ple of times and each time the ser­vice was fan­tas­tic and friendly,’’ a re­view said. At No 8 was Moven­pick, in Queen­stown. One TripAd­vi­sor re­viewer said: ‘‘Don’t miss out, this ice cream is re­ally good. Nice creamy and not too sweet ice cream, a must for dessert!’’

No 5: Ale­jan­dro Giminez of Patag­o­nia.
