ROBA the pool!

With great eagerness we tore into the box from Roba Dolce!


Inside was a mountain of ice cream cartons

all begging to have the first fling with our taste buds!


With them all lined up on the counter,

the irresistible Pistachio beckoned us with a siren call!


In a snap, the lid was off!

We scooped out luscious mounds of creamy delight into the awaiting bowls.


We must let it temper. Long minutes passed until weakness overcame us!

Oh, the palate pulses with pleasure as the pure heaven swirls in our mouths.

The muted crunch of the nuts is all that slows us from devouring the cool nectar.

Creamy and nutty. The best of both!

The taste of Roba Dolce rivals the homemade ice cream you cranked for hours in your youth.

The wonderful flavor and creamy texture didn’t stop there.

No. It continues on from one carton to the next!

I took the carton of Dark Chocolate Chunk to the pool!


OH MY! Chocolate lovers beware!

You can’t STOP yourself!


The silky chocolate cream plays delightfully with your senses!

Then the dark chunks excite your taste buds

with a deep richness and just a hint of the bitter tones

you’d expect from lots of cocoa.


The other flavors will be just as memorable!

I don't know which one I'm longing for more...the ice cream or the pool!! I have a terrible weakness for HagenDaiz (sp???) Rum Raisin!! I can't spell it but I can eat it!
hugs from chilly Delaware:)

Vee said...

Oh you blessed little dubbers! You write such a lovely review that I'd love to have a taste of that chocolate. :D

Lori said...

This post was almost too cruel for me to finish reading all about your delicious time eating all that ice cream! LOL Ever since we first travelled to Italy, I've been in love with gelato, so if this stuff is as good as the original, I think I might have to get the info on how to get some for myself!?! ;-D

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I'm dreaming of dark chocolate!!!

Brenda Kula said...

I've got to get some of this stuff! After the week around here (I now have running toilets. No, I'm not chasing them), I need some chocolate!

Donnie said...

Ice cream by the pool...can it get any better than yeah, forgot the chocolate part.

The Glam Gals said...

OK, now you really did it, You got my mouth watering!!! WOW, that ice cream looks good!!
I love that you went out and ate it around the pool!!
This Delaware Glam Gal is off to LA on Sunday and I will have to pick up some of that yummy stuff and try it for myself!

You tease! I just gained 5 pounds just looking at that!

Cyndi said...

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh..... I am soooo jealous! Why? 1. You are eating Gelato (love it!), and I can't. 2. You are in Florida eating Gelato. 3. You are in Florida at the pool eating Gelato! 4. You are in Florida where the sun is shining and it is warm enough for you to be at the pool eating Gelato..... get my train of thought? Sigh. Enjoy some for me, sweet friend! :o)



Terri said...

I need to be where you are and enjoying some of that yummy goodness!
Thanks for visiting me at my blog too.

Beedeebabee said...

Good grief, I just ate way too much hot apple pie...and now my mouth is watering for some of your ice cream! Please eat some more for me...the yummy chocolate, or any flavor...just hurry and eat some for me!!! ... Your pool pictures are so beautiful, look so cute in that hat! xo Paulette

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Diane,
Now you have me wanting some ice cream. You are so good, you could do a commerical for this product. I have not tried this ice cream, but you are a good sale and I am convinced it has to be very delicious.LOL
Love all your pics by the pool. I long for those days again. We are in a deep freeze here and been iced in all week long.

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by and entering my giveaway. Good luck!

Love your last post too. All your outfits are adorable on cute you!

Esme said...

Yumm who does not love chocolate ice cream or just ice cream.

Mary said...

Yummy sounding - love gelato but never had any as good as what was served me in Rome!

Love your pool pics - looks like you'e enjoying nice weather - wet and cold here in Raleigh this weekend.

Diane, I've been missing your posts for some reason, the newer ones weren't showing up so I thought you were taking a break! Glad to see all is well dear.

I'm off on a little trip soon - heading west again, but much farther west than Asheville this time!

Hugs- Mary

Vicki said...

We love gelato. So creamy. I need to check these guys out. I haven't seen it in stores. I'm near Orlando. Where do you buy it? I see they shipped to you.

Kelly Jeanette said...

Chocolate! I have tried a little cafe here that offers Gelato and Sorbetto. Love it.
It looks warm there. Florida is the place to be during the winter.

Donna said...

We got our shipment on Thursday and we're still "sampling", LOL! I'm going to do my blog review soon. Your post was so cute! That dark chocolate chunk is awesome! I love the lemon too!
