    Hi Bosco, and thanks. Sounds great for the summer, but I don't think we'd sell much icecream in the winter. Perhaps we could do hot soup then I actually have been in touch with an Australian ice cream franchise to see if they will do an overseas shop. They don't yet but it may happen in the future.

    Good luck with your business. You didn't mention what that is. I can't promise I wont steal your idea so good move.

    Any other ideas are most welcome.

    I think the Finns would fall in love with Aussie Macadamia Nut Ice Cream!

    Thanks GintsR. Ive sent you an email.

    We're also tossing around another idea now. Maybe we'll stay in Australia and open a Finnish food shop. We've just started looking into it so nothing definite yet. I need to find out about Finnish producers and manufacturers who export. So.... any information any of you might have would once again be appreciated. I'm thinking all sorts of stuff from coffee to frozen makkara to candy and pulla.

    Lol, I know, it's crazy. So undecided!!!!! We haven't decided where we'll go yet. My vote is Finland but my husband just isn't sure, and he of course gets the final say. We will make a proper decision within the next month or so. I just need that really good business idea to sway him towards Finland a little more. Do you know of any websites that list business's for sale in Finland? I can't find anything in English, and I don't know what to search for in Finnish.
