Our ice cold summer tip

What sweetens us the summer? Of course: ice cream. Both in the middle of Bocholt and in individual districts there are ice cream parlors with lots of delicious ice creams. Orbis visited some of them and tested them a bit. We present their latest creations and the most popular varieties. Directly in the city center, in and around the historic town hall, is the ice cream parlor Leone. In addition to the "classics" chocolate, vanilla and strawberry there are constantly changing new ice cream varieties offered. For example watermelon, grapefruit or blood orange. Even the chocolate bar Snickers is now available as ice cream. Or cake, with the touch of a cosmopolitan city: New York Cheesecake. Probably the most popular type of ice cream in Leone is rhubarb, made from juice from the Hamminkelner fruit winery van Nahmen. Among the sundaes, spaghetti ice cream and tartufo are in high demand. Here, on the market, the ice cream selection is particularly large. Across the street, in the ice cream parlor Cavone, owner Angelo Palu and his staff have something very special for their guests: salt caramel and ricotta blueberry are the newest ice creams. Probably the most popular creation here is the Bacio variety, which tastes of nut and nougat. Before the ice cream parlors on the market you can sit outside in summer. Many people do and enjoy it. The Eiscafe Dragone on the Klausenerstraße in Stenern is a classic family business. Already 1967, the father of owner Gaetano Dragone made ice for the first time. The latest ice creams are grape, papaya and cookies. The most popular variety is and remains the well-known Stracciatella with the extra large pieces of chocolate. In another Bocholt district, in Biemenhorst, ice lovers will find on Birkenallee. This is practically the main street of Biemenhorst, which leads from the Dingdener road to Rhede-Krechting. Here is located next to the sports club SV Biemenhorst the ice cream parlor Dellnitz, which is operated by the bakery Gildhuis. Special specialties of the house are peppermint ice cream with pieces of chocolate and the exotic-sounding Black Mamba, black colored Amarena ice cream. However, these varieties do not always exist, but only seasonally. Most often, customers ask for the variety of cookies with delicious biscuits.Biemenhorst has another ice cream café, the Tre Limoni at the Civic Center. Owner Afrim Gashi reports to Orbis that his visitors prefer the yogurt strawberry and mens cream, which is not surprising, because men's cream is very popular in Bocholt and should not be missing from any party. Of course, there are also very special specialties: In addition to salt caramel also sesame and dragon fruit. What exactly is it and how does it taste? Again, as for all other mentioned ice cream parlors and ice creams: Just try it yourself. Enjoy it! Enjoy the Bocholt summer! [...]
