TUTTI FRUTTI ICE CREAM
MY WIFE AND I have been on a mission for the last 30 years to find, what once was a very popular Ice Cream.....Tutti Frutti......the ice cream makers took it off the market many years ago collectively and it's never returned, closest I can describe it as a pistachio with pieces of pineapple, banana etc.....UTTERLY DELICIOUS....does any one know where to find this great treat ??............Thank you
LEOFONT - Your post made me happy because I never had Tutti Frutti Ice Cream before.
Long story short, contacted several places and asked if they had this flavor.
None so far, but the summer is not over yet, will keep looking.
Mostly ice cream shop owners have said that it is no longer a popular flavor, hogwash, some of the flavors out there are so much less exciting than what you have described above.
Random Side Note: will be getting a copy of The Adventures of Ozzy and Harriet Tutti Frutti episode since I have never seen that before - LOL and thank you.
Well, Leo, give me some more specifics and maybe I can help you out. I own an ice cream store in Sea Bright and we make all of our own ice cream there. The ice cream itself was pistachio, you say? With pineapples and bananas and what else in it? I'll talk to my hubby and see if he wants to give it a whirl!
I'm somewhat surprised that you are in the ice cream business and have never heard of tutti frutti! You must be under 50! :-))
If you search the web, you will find hundreds, if not thousands, of references to tutti frutti ice cream. Many of these are recipes so you should be able to pick one and try it. Let us know if you end up selling it at your store.
BTW, the OP asked the same question a couple of years ago on the Tristate Region board. One response indicated that tutti frutti is still available at a shop in Queens. Unfortunately, no store name or address were given.
Another BTW: the popular R&R song from the 1950s, Tutti Frutti, was a VERY cleaned up version of an older song. The original would definitely not have made it onto the Ozzie and Harriet show!

Bluebell's FRUIT SPECIAL is on the freezeer shelves now....it is one of their rotation flavors- only available for a few months. It's wonderful-you'll love it- tutti frutti base, with cherries, pineapple and a few tiny marshmallows. Happy Spring !
