My husband I and I stopped into Penguino and decided to share a double scoop (cinnamon and after dinner)...it was so good, we walked away with a half-litre to go, something we nearly never do! The flavours in the half-litre were just as delicious...if you're in Nelson, make it a point to stop in and enjoY!

I had heard about this place from one of my guidebooks, and it lived up to its great review.
When i walked in and started speaking the manager (who was wonderful), he gave me a sample of every flavor (all 18) that they make right there in the shop. One of the flavors was strawberry in which the fruit was picked from the garden the day before. Yummy!

They had flavors like Lavendar and honey, hazelnut chocolate (like Ferrero Roscher), Mango, etc. Very good stuff!

Three scoops later, I left as a very satsistied customer (and probably a little plumper too). :)
