Toscanini's in "10 Best"

Toscanini's is on Forbes Traveler's "American's Best Ice Cream":
Folks, our goal here is to share tips on finding great chow. Previous discussions here about the owner's tax issues have not gone well, so that's not a topic we're going to be entertaining at this time, and have removed some posts focusing on that aspect.
Please feel free to share your thoughts on the ice cream, not the owner's business practices. Thanks.
I agree that 'top 10' lists are a bit silly-- but I'm still glad to see that Toscanini's made it onto the list -- it shows that Forbes' writers did their homework thoroughly. Is Toscanini's measurably better than Christine's or Herrell's or any of the other fine options in the Boston area? Personally I think it's splitting hairs-- they're all quite good.
But it's nice to see Toscanini's get some recognition anyway-- their quality has been rock solid for decades, and their flavors are clever and addictive. I especially like the 'burnt caramel'-- it's an absolute classic-- other places offer a similar flavor, but nothing matches it. Also, be sure to try the malted chocolate.
On the downside, their prices are a bit higher than other places.
