While ice cream may be a summer standard, gelato is really the hot topic of the season and gaining in popularity every day. The problem is that it can be hard to find a good gelateria. The solution is to have it shipped from an artisan producer, like Capogiro Gelato. The family-run, Philadelphia-based company produces very small (1-3 gallon) batches of their creamy gelatos each day and offer a total of more than 250 flavors that vary seasonally. They use local ingredients, including hand-picked produce and milk from grass-fed Pennsylvania cows, to ensure the highest quality product possible.
The best bet for a gelato fan is to order their Gelato for All Seasons ($240) package, which includes shipments of 6-pints of the best seasonal, four times each year. Flavors include winter specialties like Persimmon Sorbetto, spring's Honeysuckle Gelato, Blackberry and Blueberry with Thyme in summer and Sweet Potato with Pecan Praline and Pomegranate in fall.
