Globalization has made it harder and harder to bring unique gifts from France to friends and family. Laduree macarons? Available in the US now. Mariage Freres tea? High-end gourmet shops carry it. Diptyque candles? The company is now owned by Americans. So I was tickled to find something today at Franprix that you’d never find in the States: Montelimar Nougat ice cream! Now if I could just figure out how to transport it…

The picture looks so good!
I am SO happy to see this picture!!! When my husband and I were living in France, we were addicted to Franprix generic brand ice cream. It was notably delicious, almost like a gelato, and I think was only 1 euro. I miss it so much!!!!
p.s. there are still plenty of things I adore in France that I can’t get here.
