Easter is a day that represents peace, resurrection and salvation. And what better way to represent those themes than with a dove as Colomba means dove in Italian. Celebrate Easter with a taste of tradition and a salute to the future with us by picking up your Colomba today.

The Italian Tradition of Easter Colomba

Easter is around the corner and that means a day of sweet filled fun! Here’s what we’re bringing to the table to celebrate: Colomba, Gelato-Filled Colomba, and Gelato Easter Eggs.

Easter Colomba

Colomba is a traditional Italian bread made specifically for Easter. Related to Panettone and Pandoro, it is made from similar ingredients. However, the addition of candied peel, almonds and sugar sprinkles differentiate it from the bunch.

Another note of interest is the dovelike shape of the Colomba. After all, Colomba means “dove” in Italian. Doves are known to represent peace, salvation and resurrection: a key part of the Easter tradition.

Make Easter a little bit more Italian by picking up a Colomba. You can get a traditional version or if you’re in for more fun: a gelato-filled version is also available!

Gelato Easter Eggs

We like to put our own spin on each holiday and this time that means Gelato Easter Eggs! These Egg shaped bon bons are such a fun way to enjoy the day and you can even have your very own Easter egg hunt with them (in the freezer that is)!

Spread joy this Easter with a refreshing take on the holiday!
