January Flavor: Tangerine

As you know, it’s Tangerine season! This means that we will be carrying this precious lil cutie as a flavor. We here at GIO love to follow along with mother nature’s natural schedule because it brings out the best in the produce. This January we focus our attention on Tangerines. Let us fill you in on the details!

Tangerine Health Benefits

In addition to being packed with vitamin C, tangerines are a good source of dietary fiber. They also have a moderate amount of vitamin A, with 100 grams of tangerine providing you with approximately 14% of your daily recommended vitamin A intake.

Tangerines are also a minor source of:

  • Thiamin.
  • Vitamin B6.
  • Copper.
  • Potassium.
  • Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5)

If you love a classic but creamy fruit flavor then you’ll love this Tangerine gelato.

This gelato is made up of only three ingredients: tangerines, organic cane sugar, and water. It is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and egg-free.

Where to try this flavor

Stop by for a cup or cone to keep your immune system healthy this winter season. 

You can find us at either of our locations in San Francisco or San Ramon as well as on most delivery apps. We hope to see you soon!
