The last few times we’ve been on Union Square West, there’s been an Italian ices and ice cream cart called Uncle Gino’s. The cart doesn’t look like anything special, but it’s been so hot and muggy recently, we grabbed a sample to try on the way to a meeting.
The menu does have some less common flavors, such as sour apple or mango ices, and cheesecake ice cream. Italian ices are 2 flavors for $3, so we selected black cherry and watermelon.
We figured at worst this would cool us down, and at best, we would have a new discovery to tell you about. Turns out it was a little of each.
