On a hot, stifling midsummer’s day can there ever be anything more cooling than a large, colourful ice cream in a cone?
If that is what you are craving there is no better place to be than the front of the queue outside the Te Kao Store, in the far North, where they claim to serve the biggest ice creams in the country.
It’s not as though there’s nothing else to eat in Te Kao, it’s just that those who visit the tiny town are looking for something special.
Bonnie Conrad’s ice creams are famous, and have even made the Lonely Planet Guide.
Bonnie’s ice creams come in scoops, the biggest is the “whoppa stoppa”.
