Introducing... Roba Dolce!

Kudos to the Fed-Ex lady today!  Its was unspeakably cold, or -12 below zero outside.  Here was this tiny Fed-Ex woman trying to carry this enormous box up our snowy sidewalk.  Her glasses were fogged up and with the 3 scarfs she layered around her head, neck and face, she could barely see.  But she was happy as a clam to bring me a special delivery.   The box read "perishable" and I couldn't wait to rip it open.  She waited with me to see what it was...

Do you see what it says under the black and white triangle?  "Dry ice..."  The mystery of the box continues...

Until we got to this part...  the look on her face was priceless and I only wished she could have stayed to enjoy some with me.

Every time Karen @ This Old House II mentions her husband's new business venture, Roba Dolce my mouth starts to water for a taste, even when its breakfast time.  So even though it was 10:00 am?  You know I had some mango sorbetto for breakfast!! And yep... IT WAS AWESOME!  

We received lemon and mango sorbetto. For gelattos we got pistachio, coconut, and dark chocolate chunk.  Yummy! 


Thank you Roba Dolce!  Thank you Karen!


The boys of course have to wait till after school tonight to try some, but then we'll get a "review" from them.  Would you like to learn more about Roba Dolce?  Click on the button in my right hand sidebar at the top or follow the links...

  4. YAY Vickie!!! and I thank you for the shout out. Please let me know what the boys think - and remember to let it temper (soften) - the flavor and texture is best then.

  7. Even though it's hard for me to think of anything cold right now, since it's all around us, this has my mouth watering too, Vicky. What a fun surprise in the middle of winter, and I can imagine the delight on the face of the FedEx lady. You described this well and kept us in suspense! So glad for your visuals to make it even more meaningful!
