message 24: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments You're welcome Clémentine. And yeah it is a bit hard to find some books since many letters are there twice, but it is my favourite ice cream flavour, so it is worth it. :)

Kathy | 7950 comments Ok I have to ask because I have never heard of this flavor. What is Stracciatella? The most exotic flavor I know is pumpkin or cappuccino! lol!! :D

LOL! I didn't know what it meant either! When I looked it up this is what it said:

In Europe, ice cream with a vanilla base and chocolate shavings is also called stracciatella.

message 43: by Mehsi (last edited Aug 01, 2013 01:08PM) (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments If you ever find it, I would recommend you try it out. :) There is also a few recipes how to make things I believe, so you could try that out too.


message 44: by Angela (new)

Angela | 17787 comments I'll look up a recipe. I've never seen this flavor before.


message 45: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments Good luck with making it, hope it will work out, and that you will like it. :)


message 46: by Angela (new)

Angela | 17787 comments Thanks, Mehsi. (:


message 47: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments Quick question, can I omit "the" or "A" in the title of the book? Like if I wanted to use The Elite, could use it for the letter "E"? Thanks! :)


message 48: by Angela (new)

Angela | 17787 comments Yeah. "The" and "A" are articles, so they don't count. (:


message 49: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments Yay!! Ok thanks Angela! I automatically omit them because of my work (while I shelf read), I wanted to make sure it was ok here too! :)
