Gelato is a time-honored Italian tradition dating all the way back to the late 1500s when the Medici family, who were outspoken lovers of frozen desserts, commissioned architect and artist Bernardo Buontalenti to impress the visiting King of Spain with a beautiful meal. Altering the recipe for the then-famous sorbet, Buontalenti produced a creamier, richer version that’s now known as gelato.
Our Italian Ice Cream Truffles continue this delectable tradition. Our delicious gelato is carefully handmade and coated in rich chocolate. They’re then finished with shelled nuts or additional chocolate pieces. From the gelato to the chocolate coating and topping, each Italian ice cream flavor profile is carefully chosen to create a complimentary and unique tasting experience.
