Specializing in excess, Denmark’s Vaffelbageriet ’s most popular item is the "Amerikaner," packing up to four scoops of ice cream in a cone and topped with syrup, whipped cream, and a chocolate-covered meringue puff. Simmo’s Ice Creamery in Australia went from a tiny father-and-son creamery, founded in 1993 with just an old Irish recipe and an ice cream machine, to an award-winning shop with over 60 traditional and unique ice cream flavors like “Mango Macadamia,” “Rum and Raisin,” and “Orange Chocolate Chip.” In Italy, the ice cream sandwich takes an unusual form at Antico Caffè Spinnato , where gelato is served on fresh-baked brioche bread.
