It's a long trip to get an ice-cream

Nardini’s, Largs

Phyllis and I thought it was a bit unfair on the kids to do DIY for three days in a row, so Phyllis suggested that we should go for an ice-cream at Nardini’s in Largs.

Sure, it’s a long trip, but she claimed the ice-cream was worth it. (She says it was the first place she ever had a non-vanilla ice-cream in her life.)

However, when we got there, we found out it was closed (see the photo). We later met Joyce (with Steve, Karen and Andrew) who said it closed years ago, so Phyllis must not have been to Largs for longer than she thought.

Today we had our ice-cream at a different Nardini’s near the ferry terminal, and it was absolutely lovely!

All hope is not lost for trying the original Nardini ice-cream, though – according to this article, it is due to open later this summer under new ownership (but with the original recipes).

    OMG – I reckon I had icecream there about 22 years ago and I’d forgotten all about its existence until I saw it here! Man, that brought back memories! Oh, and I hope you enjoyed your treat.
