The Heladería de Lares or Icecream Parlor in Lares, a town on the western side of the island, has the most interesting flavors (see post for Jan. 27.) The pictures below show a variety of those flavors. They are written in Spanish, but some of the flavors include rice and beans, sweet potato, carrot, garlic, and avacado!
