PUMPKIN originates from the Greek word PEPON (large melon). Pumpkins are native to North America…the colonists eventually changed the term to PUMPKIN. In fact, the world’s heaviest pumpkin on record recently tipped the scales at over 2,000 pounds. Honeybees influence the pollination of this widely cultivated fruit. A member of the Cucurbitaceae family, pumpkin fruit is rich in antioxidants and low in calories.
The time is ripe for “everything pumpkin.”
Pumpkins have played an important role in folk lore – Cinderella’s Coach, the Legend of Sleepy Hallow, carved Jack O’ Lanterns for Halloween and Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving are at the “tip of my tongue”. Of course, having tales at the tip of one’s tongue is not quite as delicious as the real thing.
Grocer’s displays are brimming with “pumpkin edibles.” We pay homage to this American tradition with Pumpkin Spice Gelato Giuliana, now seasonally available on local shelves at Stop and Shop in East Haven, CT and Branford, CT.
Gelato lovers proclaim the taste is “simply perfetto” with a subtle hint of savory spice. You must taste it for yourself.
Just one location where you will find a wide selection of our flavors including freshly scooped PUMPKIN SPICE Gelato Giuliana is at the very popular Brunello’s Cafe, 2 East Main St. Branford CT. Be sure to ask for this yummy flavor by the full name – PUMPKIN SPICE Gelato Giuliana !
