3 Serron: No! We can't do that!

That's a lot of pistachio ice cream. I like ice cream, but I have to say pistachio is not one of my favourite flavours.

2014-08-20 Rerun commentary: Well-made pistachio ice cream looks great. It should have a light olive green colour - not the fluorescent green that comes from artificial colouring.

My favourite gelato bar often has hazelnut gelato, which is much nicer (in my opinion) than pistachio. Which is weird, since I like pistachio nuts more than I like hazelnuts.

There are a few flavours like that, where people like the flavour in cooking but not the raw ingredient. Bananas seem to be a big one - I've met many people (my wife included) who love banana flavoured things or things with banana as a major ingredient, but who can't stand eating a banana by itself. I think it's a texture thing. Bananas have that sort of mushy texture which can turn some people off.
