Next stop – Salzburg. The city of Mozart, The Sound of Music, and yeah that’s pretty much what Salzburg is all about. However Salzburg for me has special significance because I can actually remember going there with my parents when I was around 13. Which is why my trip to Salzburg revolved around the one thing I loved the most when I was there all those years ago – marzipan ice cream.
I LOVE marzipan ice cream. I can remember walking around the cobblestone streets of Europe eating the best flavour ice cream that ever exsisted and thinking “Nutella for breakfast, and marzipan ice cream after dinner. Europe has it all.”
Well my friends – not anymore it doesn’t.
Marzipan ice cream is gone. Nowhere to be found. Salzburg is fresh out. Done. Fin. Vanished. Now I don’t know if maybe it was a passing flavour of the month, but I remember it was everywhere in Austria 15 years ago. We checked every ice cream stand in the city, and apparently no one has ever even heard of marzipan ice cream! The nerve! How dare they deny its very existence!? At least lie to me and say you are fresh out but don’t pretend that this sweet nectar of the gods was all in my head!
Oh well, at least I discovered pistacio which is a nice substitute… I guess… *sniff*
Oh yeah the rest of Salzburg was nice and stuff, but really it was all about the ice cream. Here are some pics!
