Velvety smooth textures. Perfect levels of sweetness. Tons of flavors to choose from, including seasonal flavors along with the year-long favorites….I know a place that is to die for!
I have to confess that I am quite picky when it comes to frozen treats. I feel that most ice cream places tend to have very sweet products. So much so that the actual flavor of the treat gets overpowered. So when I find the perfect sweet treat…I have to stick to it, right?
I love Love LOVE Gelatissimo in New Canaan. As soon as you enter the store, you feel transported to a place that we all fantasize about as kids. Friendly, cheerful staff greeting you as you enter. Tons of yummy gelato flavors to choose from. And happy gelato-licking faces coming in and out of the front door! Why, even the color on the walls looks simply delicious!
A couple of years ago, I went with my family to Italy. Collectively we vowed to try Gelato in every city we visit. It was quite a daunting task – as you can imagine, but it had to be done. I am proud to say that we stuck to our vow, even when it meant eating as many as 3 Gelatos a day!
We all agreed that the Gelato we had in Florence was the best and creamiest. As soon as we returned from our trip, with fresh memories of the yummy Gelati we sampled in Italy and the sweet taste still almost there in our mouths…we went to compare it all to Gelatissimo, New Canaan. I kid you not when I tell you that it was as good as the Florence version!
So my advice: if you can’t go to Italy any time soon…go to the next best thing right here in your backyard!
Gelatissimo, 26 Forest Street, New Canaan; (203) 966-5000
See you there!
