Mora Ice Cream is Worth the Trip
Travel is a challenge for everyone right now, but small changes in scenery and carefully planned & executed trips can be restorative experiences. The trip to get some deliciously cold and silky Mora Ice Cream is one such experience that will leave you feeling pretty good this summer. Food & Wine Magazine has called Mora Ice Cream “superb,” and we really do agree. Their ice cream and sorbet flavors are inventive and astonishingly good.
Each batch of Mora Ice Cream is made here at their Bainbridge Island facility and is made using only the finest of ingredients. The batches are made using their old-world artisanal techniques, but their flavors are anything but old. The process they use allows the flavors to meld into each other, producing a product that is far superior to any store-bought ice cream. But it’s not just about the flavors; the silky, smooth, and velvety texture will leave a lasting impression.
The owners of Mora Ice Cream are originally from Buenos Aires, a heritage you’ll taste in many of their flavors, including Gianduja, Marron Glace, and Dulce de Leche. Add to these traditional treats unique flavors like Goat Cheese with Fig, Banana Split, and seasonal delights like lavender and rose petal, and you have a tough choice ahead. It’s signature flavor and namesake, Mora, is a delightful blackberry taste of the Pacific Northwest. In short, with their 48 flavors on hand (and 70 total in rotation), it’s hard to go wrong.
