Classic Collection of Flavors to Choose From
Stracciatella: It is a traditional gelato flavor of vanilla gelato sprinkled with dark chocolate chips. You take one bite and will find that the candy seemed to replicate the combined taste beautifully. The shell of the gelato is simple in its soft vanilla flavor, emphasizing the high-quality rich chocolate inside. After crunching through the surface, the overall taste will be more of chocolate than the vanilla offering a good alternate hot of flavors with every bite. The flavors of Stracciatella are super creamy and notably smooth, and the look of it is super inviting.
The thick candy coating also has a firm crunch, much crispier and more fun than any candy shell, and more similar to an Easter robin egg candy.

This unique gelato cake is just as tantalizing as if you dissolve the shell in your mouth before digging in.
Cookies and Cream: Next bestseller in line is our Cookies and cream gelato cake. Cookies and cream is a creamy and rich gelato cake flavor stuffed full of chunks of Oreo cookies.

Dulce de leche: Consumed mostly in South American countries, it is in Argentina where “Dulce de Leche” is considered a national symbol. According to legend, it was produced by mistake back in the 19th century when a pot of sugared milk was being left forgotten and unattended on a flame. After various hours of cooking, the milk transforms into a delicious creamy caramel mixture. Yes, it is our lovely caramel flavor. Made with fresh milk, sugar, and lots of patience. This gelato cake flavor will surely bring back caramel-coated childhood memories.

Vanilla gelato is similar to vanilla bean ice cream but with milk instead of heavy cream giving a more delectable aftertaste.
Cremino: This inimitable flavor is made by combining dark chocolate, cream, and hazelnut, interlayered with pistachio cream. It is basically chocolate gelato with three layers. The top and the bottom, which is the darker colored layers, are made of Gianduja, which is similar to Nutella. While the middle layer is what gives it its overall flavor. Cremino was invented in Turin, the capital of the Northern Italian region of Piedmont, and dates back to the 1930s.

Chocolate: Our number one crowd-pleaser is plain, simple, and delicious chocolate gelato. The basic chocolate flavor, but the variations on this theme are nearly endless. It’s all the rage to pair chocolate with other complementary flavors, like Triple Chocolate Brownie and Coco.
Coffee: It’s all too easy to overlook the other flavors once you see the tempting fruit-flavored gelatos. But sometimes, why not take your afternoon coffee in gelato form? Our coffee-flavored gelato will take you by surprise with its mysterious flavor when formed into gelato.
Cookie Dough: The delicious combination of browned butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips. This gelato flavor is the ultimate sweet heaven. These ingredients give the gelato a deeper, richer flavor than plain vanilla ice cream, which you usually find in cookie dough ice cream. Biting into each chunk of cookie dough will taste like it was stolen from your grandmother’s mixing bowl and placed into the gelato by the frozen treat fairy.
Mint: Our mint gelato is a refreshing way to cool off this summer. Fresh mint blended with flecks of bittersweet chocolate, yielding an exotically smooth and refreshing finish. As it’s made with fresh mint, it has a delicious, intense mint flavor that you won’t find in any store-bought mint chip ice-cream. While gelato gets its creaminess from the egg yolks, you can easily distinguish this flavor from any mint-flavored ice cream.
Key Lime Pie: Tangy, tart, and refreshing, with a bit of graham cracker crunch, our key lime pie flavored gelato is just like the pie. The popularity of Key Lime with Graham Cracker Gelato will be a bit of a surprise because its flavor is decidedly tart since Americans tend to have sweeter palates.
Freshly-baked key lime pie is the inspiration behind this gelato flavor. The tartness depends on the type of lime used to make the gelato. The major difference between regular Persian limes and key limes is that the key limes are comparatively smaller than Persian limes. Once sliced, you must have noticed that key limes have a lot of seeds like a lemon, where Persian limes are seedless. Also, the key lime has a much thinner rind, higher acidity, a stronger flavor, and a distinct aroma that is easily recognized. And this gives our gelato a typical taste from all other sweet flavors.
Rum & Raisin: Dark rum has a wonderfully rich and complex sweetness that lends itself particularly well to desserts. By steeping the raisins in rum for several hours to rehydrate and soften and infuse the raisins with rum flavor giving the gelato a unique combination of flavors with a blend of both the ingredients.
Siciliano: Our code to make the authentic siciliano is to use the finest variety of Sicilian Pistachios, renowned for being the world’s best. It creates a delicate, natural, and clean taste to the creamy gelato. By carefully blending this noble nut’s paste with high-quality fresh milk, we are able to offer a rich and indulgent treat to our customers.
Some of our other gelato pint flavors include:
Dulce de leche
Cookies and Cream
Pint Full of Flavorful Sorbet
Gelato and Sorbet are the two most common frozen desserts devoured on hot summer days. Gelato is a frozen dessert containing milk, cream, egg yolk, sugar, and various flavoring agents. While it has more calories and fat compared to Sorbet. Sorbet, on the other side, generally containing a sweetened fruit juice or syrup mixed with flavored water. It is also made with a variety of other ingredients. Though there is no milk or cream added to Sorbet.
Gelato is prepared in the same way the ice cream is prepared but at a much slower pace with little air to let in, making it more dense and fluffy. This is why it remains frozen at warmer temperatures. Sorbet is, on the other hand, made in the ice cream maker at a relatively faster pace with little air.
Gelato contains more calories and fat due to more milk and less cream, while Sorbet contains more sugar content. Sorbet also differs from these frozen desserts with composition, which is the lack of dairy ingredients. Should I mention that Sorbet is a gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan version, sounds better!
Our sorbets are made with the highest quality fresh fruits and juices. So that you can enjoy the refreshing Sorbet, guilt-free, like a child!
Some of our most cherished sorbet flavors include-
- Tamarind: This sweet and tangy gelato is super refreshing on those hot Weston summer days. It’s also pretty light with the perfect amount of tartness, so no fear for those sour facial expressions.
- Mango: There is nothing better in this WORLD than having a pint full of chilled sweet mango sorbet on a sunny evening. Both our mango popsicle and sorbet is smooth, light, and incredibly delicious.
- Lemon: Best for the sunny, summery days, our lemony gelato will refresh you to the core. Along with that, you’ll be surprised by how soft this Sorbet is, as well as tangy and refreshing, just like a glass of lemonade.
- Strawberry: Strawberry sorbet is a sweet, soft summer refresher! In particular, we’d recommend sorbet over strawberry popsicle if you’re looking to cool down on a hot day.
If none of those mentioned above flavors captured your interest, the list is not over yet. Apart from these classic fruity flavors, we also have Flamingo, Passion Fruit, and Sour Sop (Guanabana) sorbets for you.
Tiramisu: This is made of the perfect combination of creamy cheese, espresso, cacao, and egg yolk, making this gelato flavor the ultimate guilty pleasure. But you have to be careful because, just like the traditional form of this iconic Italian dessert, tiramisu gelato is incredibly addictive! Once you try it, you will become obsessed with it. But the good part is that Tiramisu in the form of frozen delight is less sugary, which makes it a healthier option than a classic form of this insanely delicious dessert.
Strawberry Cheesecake: Who doesn’t like strawberry cheesecakes! This inspired piece of delicious gelato creation is a beautiful combination of light creamy texture blended with intense strawberry flavor. This world-famous dessert in the form of frozen delight is an ideal choice for summer indulgence and quintessence of perfection.

Gelato is Healthy than Ice Cream
Gelato is the Italian counterpart of ice cream. And one must know how they are different from each other. Gelato differs from American ice cream in three major ways: Denseness, Sugar content, and Temperature. First, and fundamentally, Gelato is much denser than American ice cream. And the reasons are:
Gelato contains significantly less butterfat than regular ice cream. While ice cream contains 15 percent butterfat or more, Gelato typically contains more like 4-8 percent milk fat.
Gelato is churned more slowly and for a longer duration and has less air whipped into it in comparison to ice cream, thus producing a denser product.
Overall, gelato and ice cream share the basic properties of being made from frozen milk, cream, and other ingredients, sometimes including egg yolks. Since Gelato is denser, this is why the flavors are more intense as compared to that of ice cream.
Conclusively, Gelato is generally stored and served at slightly warmer temperatures than ice cream. While ice cream can be stored at -20 degrees Fahrenheit or colder, Gelato is usually kept at 0 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit and served at 10 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The low-fat content of Gelato and its denser consistency would make it too hard to eat at colder temperatures.
Gelato Have More Flavor Than Ice Cream
Since the lower temperature of the Gelato means you taste the flavors more intensely. This is also due in part to the fact that a numb tongue is less sensitive. Also, the receptors present in our taste buds become more sensitive when the temperature of the food is increased.
This is particularly valid for sweet flavors. If you’ve ever noticed that melted ice cream tastes sweeter, then when it’s still frozen, this is what is happening. One more factor is that the flavor compounds that produce tastes and aromas, which in turn affect the way we experience the flavors, are more active at warmer temperatures. Therefore, when the food is colder, its taste will be correspondingly less intense to our palate. Think of ice pops.
Finally, ice cream is prepared with cream, which has a higher percentage of fat content than milk. The fat tends to coat the tongue, which forms a barrier between your taste buds and the food. Since Gelato is made with milk, there is less fat present, so you taste the flavors more intensely.
