After a hot meal for lunch, we wanted to get something nice and cool for dessert. I had did some research before we went to Vegas and there were a few places that popped up as good dessert places. Well... they LIED! We happened to be at the Wynn in Las Vegas because our Dad wanted to check out the hotel. I told Ms. Lin about Sugar & Ice that's located there that's said to have good desserts. We decided to give their Gelato a try. She chose the Caramel Stracciati and I decided to get the Peanut Butter Cup Dream. At first I wasn't going to get that flavor because Ms. Lin's not a huge fan of peanut butter. Luckily she told me to get what I liked because what she got was bland and icy. The peanut butter flavor was actually much better. I have to say that Vegas keeps disappointing me with their Gelato! The place we tried in the Venetian last time, which I will eventually get to posting O=), was horrible too. There wasn't any intriguing flavors that looked appealing that day either.
All in all I don't recommend this place at all for their Gelato. People said they have good drinks and food, I don't know if I would believe them anymore. Their gelato is quite pricey, which only makes it worse that it tasted so bland and icy. It definitely was NOT a gelato. I wanted to get a Chocolate-Dipped Waffle Cone that was the only interesting part. It's half dipped in Milk Chocolate and the other half in White Chocolate. The cone looked pretty, but taste was a whole other thing! BLECH! The chocolate was so waxy and sweet that I couldn't even eat the whole thing. I almost chipped my tooth trying to bite into the multi-layered cone. A 2-scoop Gelato with a Chocolate-Dipped Waffle Cone ended up costing me almost $10. I know it's Vegas and all, but it's a ridiculous amount to pay especially when it's not even good! =***(
