GELATO is the Italian word for "frozen".
First created in the 16th century in Florence, Italy. This creamy confection found its beginnings in the form of a flavored crushed ice, slush-like dessert. Gelato became a popular dessert that lined the streets of Italy and adorned the menus of gourmet Italian dinners. The art of Gelato making has been passed on through generations; and has since evolved into the flavorable, milky dessert that the entire world has come to love.
