WHY GELATO? BECAUSE IT'S A WINTER WONDERLAND!

Friday, December 03, 2010
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? Well, it may be more like the chime of your navigation system recalculating the route to Grandma's house, but either way - the holidays are here! Time to pile into the car, board a plane or hop on the train to visit family and friends at this joyous time of year. The celebrations and gatherings you're likely to attend are the perfect time to catch up with the people you love while enjoying traditional delicacies such as eggnog, spice cake, roasted nuts and candy canes. But let's be realistic, not everyone has time to spend hours in the kitchen when there are other things to do like shopping and gift wrapping. If you don't have time to bake your favorite pie, cake or cookie this year, why not bring something NEW to the party?
 
What if your favorite holiday treat took the form of smooth, creamy gelato? Stop by your local gelateria, they are constantly coming up with new ideas and flavors for their frozen creations like pecan pie, peppermint bark and pumpkin mascarpone gelato. And don't forget gelato is lower in fat than American ice cream so your waistline will thank you. Cherish the joy of the season and safe travels, wherever you may go!
