Sometimes daughters have a bad but delicious influence.
Don't get me wrong. I love my daughter but recently she introduced me to something so yummy, it's hard to pass by the case in the supermarket where it's stored.
It's pistachio gelato made by Ciao Bella Gelato Co., Inc., in Florham, N.J. Gelato is a frozen confection, very popular in Italy. It's supposed to be less fattening than ice cream and has intense flavor.
After buying it, I found out my daughter actually purchases a different brand. Tried that one, too, and liked it but liked Ciao Bella's better!
Now Ciao Bella's pistachio gelato is not diet food. Uh uh. It's 250 calories for a half a cup but that half cup is so delightful, smooth, creamy, and tasty, it's worth the cals. One can always do more laps while swimming and promise to hit the treadmill, right?
The Ciao Bella Gelato Company was founded in 1983. Why I haven't come across this tasty product until now is anybody's guess.
The company also makes ice cream and some exotic sounding sorbets.
For now, pistachio gelato is the Number One popular summertime dessert around here. How could it be otherwise for a product that advertises to be "intensely savory?"
Smooth, creamy gelato and crunchy, flavorful pistachio nuts combine to make a really tasty treat. Who could ask for anything more?
It's hard to say "arrivaderchi" to this dessert!
P.S. Just for the record, I have absolutely no connection with the Ciao Bella company and get
no payment of any kind from them. Just love their pistachio gelato!
