Leopold's in Savannah

I just returned to Leopold's in Savannah. I was here about 2 1/2 years ago. The pistachio ice cream is about the best I've had. For one thing, there are so many more pistachios than in most pistachio ice creams, it's amazing.

    I'll second that opinion on both Leopold's and their pistachio, in particular. I went through Savannah last summer on my way to Charleston. That ice cream may have been the highlight of the trip.

    My wife and I love Leopold's. I'm partial to their Hot Fudge Sundaes.

    Looks wonderful.  Thankfully, there doesn't seem to be any green food coloring.  Am I correct?

    One of the things that I most proudly wrote about Leopold's is that their pistachio is a very natural white color with specks of green pistachio nuts. There appears to be none of that neon green food coloring found in most pistachio ice creams.

    Yes, it's a natural white, and the green in it is from the pistachios. I'm sitting outside again, and I've just finished my double, this time a scoop of peanut butter chippy to go with the pistachio.

    Many thanks.  That's what I like -- serious ice cream with no pretense.   I could be wrong, but I believe Paula Deen had Leopold's owner on her show several years ago.

    Tonight's flavors were thin mints and cream and pistachio. It's my last night here, and I just couldn't pass it up. Three nights in a row!

    I met Paula Deen a t the Savannah book festival in February and she was eating a cup of Leopold's coffee ice cream. She's pretty trim these days,

    When I went to Savannah, Leopold's was a must; glad I did it.
