Summer is the Best Gelato Season

“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always summer” — Lucy Maud Montgomery

Along with the heat, for many of us, summertime is associated with vacation and joy.

Summer is the time of year in which we detach from our routines, take advantage of the good weather, and indulge in a delicious gelato from GIO Gelati.

Some of our best memories are associated with summertime, from the small to the big adventures, the romances, the tastes and colors that only come in the summer months.

GIO Gelati brings these tastes and colors into our lives through the fresh and delicious fruits of this joyful season. Summertime brings us together, and we at GIO Gelati invite you to share in all of the delights this season has to offer, in our stores, or at home via our membership. Yes, because the GIO Gelati membership can take these delicious summer flavors right to your, or your friend’s and loved ones’ doorstep!

Think of flavors like cantaloupe gelato, which inspires pure energy, full of taste and aroma. In Italy, cantaloupe is the quintessential summer gelato flavor. It’s an inherently joyful fruit, with its color emitting rays like the sun, natural coloring, and flavoring in every creamy scoop. Cantaloupe gelato will be coming to GIO Gelati in the next weeks or days. We are waiting for the exact moment when perfectly ripe fruits become available on the market.

Color, flavor, and aroma. These are what make up our principle philosophy, which we share with you all. 

Another summer must-have is watermelon gelato, which is both refreshing and nutritional. It’s low in calories and rich in nutrients. It can be savored at any time of the day, not only as a dessert. 

Watermelon flavor will be coming to our GIO Gelati shops in mid-August. This summer flavor is characterized by unparalleled purity and freshness in taste. All there is to our watermelon gelato is the natural amount of sugar and water already in the fruit, combined with just a smidge of cornstarch we add to make the texture delightfully creamy. Incredible, isn’t’ it? Yes, simple and pure.

We, at Gio Gelati,  can’t wait to share this summer with you all!
