Rose flavored anything

Years ago, Jackp and I had a wonderful lunch in Paris that concluded with some financiers and an exquisite bite of rose-flavored ice cream. It's one of those happy memories I cherish.
A few minutes ago I had a sip of wine that had a delightful flavor of rose and it made me want to enjoy something with rose as a component again.
Aside from carrot salad flavored with rosewater, does anyone have a suggestion?
There's a company called Harvest Song from Armenia that makes a Tea Rose preserve that's bewitching.
MARIAGE FRERES in Paris makes a gorgeous Bulgarian Rose scented Tea.
MF is available on the net, and at many Gourmet shops in the States.
One of my favorite uses for rosewater is Claudia Roden's Pistachio Cake(though I guess pistachios might be a problem right now. boohoo). http://www.bakingandbooks.com/2007/07...
Also, there' s a place to us that makes a rosewater champagne cocktail I like quite a bit with rose champagne and rose water.
