Yes, we all know that Capogiro takes advantage of the season's best offerings, but I'd like to point out that this is one of my favorite times of year simply for mangos. I like my mangos perhaps a little too ripened. When I cut up a mango, I want the juice to drip off the blade and onto my fingers. I want my fingers to feel sticky as I bite into the flesh. I want the fibers to be thick and giving. I want to lick off my fingers and lips and think of candy.
That's what the Champagne Mango gelato captures... except cold (and therefore more refreshing) and *ahem* much more cleanly. *blush*
I decided to pair this lovely fruit with Peach with Southern Comfort because I wanted to continue the summery fruit flavor with something a bit more mature. While peach is also one of my favorite fruits, on its own, it cannot compare to the mago. So I was happy to see that it had Southern Comfort infused into it. The Southern Comfort gives the peach a more robust sensation. In this case it's as if i'm drinking a perfectly chilled summer cocktail that refreshes while it relaxes.
Overall, a perfect way to relax from a hard day of writing (I'm on staycation :D)

Omar's right. These bagels are amazing. I literally just finished a cinnamon-raisin and am fighting the strong desire to eat another. I'm already on my 2nd pack of day-olds (6/$2) and have been telling everyone about how delicious they are, even when not freshly baked. I'm so going to 13th for lunch one of these days in order to try a fresh, soft, delicious bagel sandwich. FYI here's their post announcing the bagels?!, which are from H&H.
As for gelato/sorbetto, we've been enjoying all the amazing Fragola flavors this season. I also finally got a chance to try Rosa, which left us talking about it all night! It was so fragrant and sweet and creamy. The tag said that Rosa was made from flowers from the oldest rose garden in the country, Wyck. Floral flavors are very underused here and i'm glad Capogiro takes the opposite route. Lavender Stracciatella is still my top flavor ever but i would LOVE to see a Violet flavor one of these days.
