All about Gelato and Sorbetto

Legend has it that the Roman emperor Nero invented Italian ice cream, or gelato, by mixing milk with ice brought from the mountains. While it is impossible to pin down the exact origins of this dessert, the oldest known recipe was written by a Roman general in the first Century B.C. By the 16th century, Sorbetto and Gelato had become mainstays of the Italian diet, and the frozen treats quickly spread to the rest of Europe.

Flash forward to 1976. Evolving from a single gelato shop on a San Francisco side street, Gelato Classico quickly became renowned for its dazzling array of flavors. The smooth, silky texture is unlike anything you've ever experienced, and the intense flavors will dazzle your palate. Gelato Classico is truly in a class by itself. Just one taste will prove it. Irresistibly creamy, delicious – and downright decadent – the recipe is a well-guarded secret.

Also popular is our sensational, fruity Sorbetto Classico, which is 100% fat-free, yet rich and flavorful – unlike conventional Italian ices.

But there are a few things you should know: Gelato Classico and Sorbetto Classico use the finest ingredients money can buy. High-grade pistachios, walnuts, macadamia nuts, and almonds. Premium chocolate and pure Madagascar vanilla. Choice seasonal fruits and, naturally, fresh milk and cream.

So is Gelato Classico really the world's best gelato?
