Gelato and Stuff

Gelatooooo timeeeee :D

Soooooo, I tried some great gelato while I was in Florence! The real deal, not touristy stuff. It was stored traditionally in the metal bin thingys in the counter, not in a display case. The colors were pale and  not fluorescent so you knew the ingredients were real :D (Contrary to popular belief, gelato should NOT be piled high and should be dull in color)
I had FOUR different flavors lol. White chocolate strawberry, passion fruit, coffee and vanilla mint (The mint was so fresh tasting, quite a new experience!). This was some seriously good stuff! The flavors were so vibrant tasting! .

 

I also had Gelato in Pisa…not as great but still good :) I had strawberry

 

Next was chocolate! Pralines to be exact, extremely creamy stuff! My favorite was the hazelnut with cracked pepper on top. The pepper was a genius addition to the chocolate! They complimented each other so well! 

 

The view at the chocolate shop!

  2. Yummy! There is NOTHING better than Italian gelato (the real stuff!) … the best I have had was in Cinque Terre, on the western coast of Italy. The setting and food there (especially the ice cream) are really like a little bit of heaven!
