“All I need is a little bit of Mambo "Ice Cream Sandwich". Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Mambo Number 5. A little bit of pistachio in my life. A little bit of cranberry by my side. A little bit of strawberry is what I see. A little bit of chili in the sun. A little bit of brown sugar all night long. A Mambo ice cream sandwich here I am. So do you see what you are about to enjoy? A great mix of flavors with Aphrodisiac pistachio coated with brown sugar and chili mixed in chocolate. Strawberry’s and cranberries mixed in to vanilla ice cream brought together inside hot waffles. Can you have just one?.”
