Berthillon - The World's Best Ice Cream

Berthillon is widely believed to be the best ice cream in France, and according to many ice cream fans, possibly the best in the world. Berthillon has been making ice cream since the 1950’s when Monsieur Berthillon started selling his homemade ice cream out of a small shop in the heart of Paris. Today, that same ice cream shop
started by Mr. Berthillon is still open and run by his descendants.
The Berthillon ice cream shop is located on the popular
little tourist destination of Ile Saint Louis,
or Saint Louis Island. Ile Saint Louis is
actually a real island located in the middle
of the River Seine which divides the city
of Paris in two, creating the famous left and
right banks.
Like most things European, ice cream is served in smaller portions that you get in the US. But what some might think is lacking in quantity is definitely made up for in quality. The proof is that no matter what time of year or time of day you go to the Berthillon ice cream shop in Paris, you’ll find a queue of customers waiting to try the famous French ice cream. What makes Berthillon particularly appealing is that the ingredients are all natural. There are no preservatives or artificial flavors that you find with other ice creams.
Perhaps this ice cream cone box was inspired by
the famous Berthillon. Made entirely of porcelain but
so deceptive that it looks and feels as if the wafer cone
is real. The pistachio and chocolate swirl looks creamy
and luscious.
