The smell of gingerbread fresh out of the oven wafts through the air.  The table is decorated with deliciously sugared pears, plums and pomegranates. There are chestnuts and hazelnuts roasting on the open fire as you and your family gathers around, celebrating the simple pleasures of the holiday season together. Now why not shake things up this holiday season and grab yourself a fresh cup of gelato!

Fresh gelato is the most refreshing way to indulge in the flavors of the season without all the fat.  How about taking a break from the traditional holiday treats and enjoy a  cool, creamy cup of Torrone Pistachio gelato and a cappuccino?  What fun it will be to treat the whole gang to some delicious peppermint candy cane gelato after the annual school play!

While cookie trays, popcorn pails and fruitcake come and go during the holiday season - gelato is a fresh, healthier indulgence that can inspire a new tradition for years to come.
