The time has come when lines begin to form outside our local ice-cream, frozen yogurt and gelato shops. But which places are the best? Some of the following shops I’ve been going to for years and others I’ve just started to enjoy. These are my top picks of places to go find that delicious reward, in no particular order.
Gelato is ice cream’s slimmer cousin. Made from the same stuff as ice cream – milk, sugar and cream– gelato contains less butterfat and sugar than ice cream but remains extremely tasty. Because of the way it’s frozen, which forms delicate and delicious ice crystals, gelato has more intense flavors than ice cream but doesn’t keep as long. If you’ve never had it, you’re missing out.
