Our fun contest starts today and the first winner will be selected on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. We are excited about this contest and simply cannot wait to see your pictures and hear your stories about Gelato Giuliana.
This is “a seriously cute Gelato Story” – from a nice couple in Westville, CT-
“…our next door neighbors have three adorable children, one is almost 8 years old, and the twins , a boy and a girl, turned 6 in March. Cute does not begin to describe this threesome! They enjoy visiting us every few days after their dinner. We started the tradition of ” a small ice cream treat if Mom & Dad say it’s ok” followed by a fun/spontaneous activity like drawing, dancing, or playing tag. Then it’s their bath time:)
We were thinking that Ice Cream Sandwiches, Pops & Cones were just not healthy enough so we tried something new, tasty and healthy – a scoop of BLOOD ORANGE RASPBERRY Gelato Giuliana. It’s easy to guess the end of this story. They licked the spoons and asked for seconds!
The next time the trio visited, Noah asked “can I have some more of the red ice cream?” Our hearts melted very fast & it felt great to explain that gelato is tastier and healthier than ice cream. We are glad there are so many flavors of Gelato Giuliana to enjoy with our “little friends.”
Our next post will be about the origins and traditions of gelato, Stay tuned.
It’s rather challenging to describe the taste of BLOOD ORANGE RASPBERRY Gelato Giuliana. You simply have to try our delicious fruit Gelato for yourself!
We wanted to share a bit of the history of this delicious fruit. Blood Oranges may trace their origin back to 18th century China or the Southern Mediterranean. They are now the primary orange grown in Italy and are favored as a fine dessert orange. The Blood Orange has thin orange blush-red skin protecting the tasty fruit that is a subtle red almost burgundy color.
Blood Oranges are also considered healthy which adds to the popularity and appeal of this special flavor. BLOOD ORANGE RASPBERRY Gelato Giuliana is a non-dairy fruit gelato. Be sure to catch our upcoming “health posts.”
The taste of a Blood Orange is unforgettable – juicy and tart sweet with a hint of berry. When we pair the Blood Orange with fresh Raspberries, the resulting flavor is delicious and will delight your taste buds. In fact, our next GELATO GIULIANA Story is about a little boy who loves our BLOOD ORANGE RASPBERRY so much that he ignores everything else on the shelf. Stay tuned!
Just one location where you will find a wide selection of our flavors including BLOOD ORANGE RASPBERRY Gelato Giuliana is at the very popular Westside Marketplace located at 887 Cromwell Ave. in Rocky Hill, CT.
Everyone we know loves the flavor of Amaretto cookies which are typically light, crunchy and hard to resist! AMARETTO is a traditional old word flavor used to infuse many recipes including the cookies which we crumble and blend into our AMARETTO Gelato Giuliana. Today, we pay homage to this gourmet Italian tradition which has subtle hints of the flavor of romance. Indeed, this flavor can be traced back to the time of Leonardo da Vinci.
As you may know there are many spots to find Gelato Giuliana throughout the New England Region. Of course, the only place you will ever find every flavor is at our home base where we hand craft our gelato fresh daily in New Haven, CT. Our gelato maker, pictured above, takes tremendous pride because he has perfected his craft and as a result Gelato Giuliana receives raves.
Individual tastes are so varied and this always makes finding your favorite flavor an adventure. Here’s a clue… you will find our AMARETTO at Nana’s in Narragansett, Rhode Island….their main location is at 28A Pier Market Place.
Our friends at Nana’s have an interesting selection of our most popular flavors. Visit Nana’s and enjoy AMARETTO Gelato Giuliana and their many delicious treats.
The brownie is a very popular and truly American dessert introduced at the end of the 19th century. The brownie even predates the Toll House cookie. No one is exactly certain how the brownie originated. One thing that is certain… at Gelato Giuliana, we always enjoy creating traditional Italian gelato and several of our flavors have a unique American influence.
Our first Gelato Story is from Steve in New Haven, CT.
According to Steve, “I totally love brownies made from scratch or a mix, from a grocery, a bakery, a coffee shop, a restaurant, anywhere. The taste of Fudge Brownie Gelato Giuliana is outrageous. Delicious pieces of brownie blended with your gelato, was better than any other dessert I could imagine. This flavor is at the top of my list! Thanks.”
As you can see below, we begin with rich, moist chocolate brownies. Using our traditional Italian Artisan process, we blend in the perfect amount of “chocolate goodness”.
