That's not what you think it is...

I have a new, favorite treat! We went & tried it out last night, and I'm hooked..which unfortunately for Jeff, means I'll be craving it 24-7. I fear for the days I'm pregnant, cause I already have terrible cravings..haha. ANYWHO, it's not the icecream you think it is, folks..it's GELATO!!! MMMM :)

Some of you may have already discovered this treat..good for you! I, on the other hand, was curious every time I drove past the new little shop by our house, but was deterred by memories of Pistachio flavored, graininess..bleh!

So last night I got called off work (I was SO sad..lol), and we decided to go check out Bellissimo's..we walked in the door to this:

WOW! Now, I'd always been told that gelato is better for you than icecream in the calories and fat-content department. I don't particularly care, 'cause if I'm going to eat a treat I'm more concerned w/ it's yumminess factor :) But the fact that this stuff really IS healthier than icecream will not hurt it's cause with me, since I'm a mild health-nut!

The first bite was quite heavenly..BETTER than ColdStone (yes, really). The flavor selection..oh my! Raspberry, coconut, diablo (insanely rich chocolate), pineapple...truly yummy stuff! I'm sure there's more shops than just the one up in my neck of the woods (which I can promise I'll be visiting more often, despite the oncoming cold weather) and I recommend you go try this stuff out! Your tastebuds will thank you :)
