Ice cream flavours can get boring from time to time - the usual flavours of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla may look better in a Neapolitan than on its own, hence we’ve come out with a comprehensive guide of 10 ice cream parlours, cafes and bars that you can get unusual ice cream flavours to satiate your ice cream cravings!
