Treats: Ginger Gelato

08 Sep

If you don’t care for ice cream, but want a frozen treat, I recommend trying Peppino’s Ginger Gelato.

Ginger Gelato

I first picked this up at Co-op, but I think you can also get it in Kensington at their shop. It’s not cheap, but it’s really good, and so flavorful that you’ll only need a small bowl. The ginger flavor is the best – a fresh, not-too-sweet treat with little chunks of ginger throughout. I’ve also tried the Hazelnut, the Coconut (also really good), the Raspberry (fresh and tart just like frozen raspberries) and Italian Kiss which is a chocolate/hazelnut blend. Still, Ginger is the best IMO…. perfect after an at-home sushi dinner! hehehe  It’s not ~creamy~ the way ice cream is though – but with some flavors that seems to be ideal – it keeps it nice and light feeling.  (However, for chocolate, I’ll stick to the creamy goodness…)

In the Celiac Husband blog, GF tried out the hazelnut variety, and if you’re keen on the idea of making your own, I found this recipe on a fellow wordpress user’s site – Ginger Gelato

Have you tried it?  Do you think it’s worth the premium price? Let us know in the comments below!

    Very misleading… Compared to Fiasco Gelato ( Campfire S’mores) it got a 1 out of 10. Gelato shouldn’t be like Italian ice, it schools be almost like a frozen taffy consistency. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON PEPPINO,!!

      Sorry you didn’t like the Peppino! I’ve never had the Campfire S’mores Fiasco Gelato.. I’m not a fan of marshmallow, which I’d expect is a flavour in there? Have you tried their Hazlenut instead?
