Simple things to make you smile can be just right on the corner. With Gelatissimo guaranteed no artificial flavors and colors, you catch up and create wonderful Gelatissimoments sharing freshly made gelato in-store with your family and friends. The variety of ice cream flavors were created only with the finest ingredients in a range of old school classics to quirky flavors you would enjoy licking all day. Savor the moment and unwind with carefully selected favorites and topping combinations.


I have been wanting to eat more of Gelatissimo ice cream in Cebu had it not cost almost P200 a scoop. My creamy indulgence of its freshly churned flavor has just turned into a well budgeted taste test. I love pairing their endless choice of gelato flavors, but only when I have some extra $$s to spend for this luxury food trip.



As for yourself, you might be fine with this special treat’s price, so go ahead and indulge in these mouthwatering delights from Gelatissimo’s gallery of spectacular sundaes and delectable dessert creations. You can stack up your gelato with layers of waffles or have fun with it on a mini game board platter. However, not all stores are able to carry these amazing selections.


Gelato has long been known as the Italian ice cream. One of the main differences between gelato and the regular ice cream is that it uses whole milk while the ice cream is created with cream. This means you can have more gelato and don’t have to worry about getting extra storage of fat.


The gelato ice cream on its own, is ever so satisfying already, but when you pair it with other flavors, and add some more toppings, you just created an amazingly addictive treat you would not know how to stop. The Italian gelato ice cream starts out with a similar custard base, but has a higher proportion of milk and lower proportion of cream and eggs. Because it is churned at a slower rate, it produces a denser kind of ice cream.


Gelato is pretty much denser that the American ice cream and it contains significantly less butterfat than the ordinary ice cream. Unlike the regular ice cream, its denser consistency makes it difficult to eat at colder or deep freeze temperatures. Gelato boasts of its creamy consistency that is thick, dense, and elastic, which truly distinguishes its being a gelato ice cream from the other regular ice cream.


At a lower temp, you taste the flavor more intensely, which explains why the gelato ice cream tastes better. If you may have noticed, we love and tend to savor more on melted ice cream. The receptors in our taste buds are more sensitive when the temperature of food increases.



Another factor why a gelato tastes better than regular ice cream, is the flavor compounds that produce the aroma and the flavor is more volatile at warmer temperatures. The colder an ice cream would be, the less intense would be its flavor. With less fat present, you taste the flavors more intensely.


Now, we know why Gelatissimo ice cream tastes excellent! To make an award winning flavor, the company uses fresh chocolates, milk, fruits, and syrups. The combination is what can make you drool like crazy. The moment you look at the different ice cream flavors displayed on their glass counters, you be landing on the seventh heaven like a child.


Gelatissimo served their customers with a rotating menu of flavors for daily selections that include tried and true classics along with its signature creations in perfect temperature controls that eliminate flavor freezer burn.


They constantly add new flavor each month to make the whole list of products look more exciting and irresistible. If you want to chill with an ice cream on hand, make sure you got it all with your travel foodie selfie, because next month that flavor may not be there and may be replaced with a new flavor.


Each time I visit the store and look at their glass door display, it would always remind me of an ice cream cake. Their innovative designs and flavors created an ice cream cake flavor combination in a stunning display of colors and fresh toppings. Whether you crave for an ice cream, a yoghurt, a sundae, or a cake, you just go ahead to Gelatissimo. It practically got all the frozen treats you want.


The gelato ice cream at Gelatissimo looks so fancy and adorable, that you would find it difficult to pick the right one for you. I noticed that all their customers seem to get mesmerized looking at all their ice cream flavors.


People would pace back and forth, have a taste test, and then pace back and forth again, before they finally stand at the counter to order. Sort of, undecided which one to savor for the day. What is funny is when they order, almost all would change their mind and pick another flavor.

With their clients on the back of their mind, some products were made low in sugar and fat free to accommodate your special dietary requirements. What’s your flavor?


If you cannot have dairy, the store carries dairy free sorbets and chocolate sorbet just to cater your desires. It also carries gluten free, nut free, and 98% sugar free flavors, so you are sure to enjoy your day picking one of the flavors for a dine in or to go fun.


If you enjoy fresh sorbets made from real fruits, go ahead and ask for that freshly churned flavor at the counter. Before this, ice creams were often served in cones with taste as cold as they were, but it’s an ice cream girl, and the old times left us with not much choice anyway. Today, Gelatissimo offers a more fun way to make you drool for your cold desserts.


Gelatissimo serves their ice cream with style, as elegant and exciting desserts, crafted into fanciful flavors at presidential dinners and high society soiress. I am not joking. The company has transformed the ice cream we know before into the kind of frozen treat we know and love today, the kind of transformed basic vanilla scoops into ganache covered bombes and meringue topped, luscious gourmet caramel flavor.


I became addicted to their ice cream ever since they opened here in Cebu. No matter the level of sophistication, frozen desserts are here to stay longer than you can imagine. Seriously, you would crave for another cup and another flavor right after you have your first bite.


There is no denying frozen desserts are popular, well loved treat that may not be easy on your pocket. They are not ordinary gelato ice cream, so give some space for these valuable concoctions fully backed by higher consumer demand.


Do you prefer a gelato milkshake instead of an ice cream? You can order to have your ice cream blended to just the right thickness. This creamy drink indulgence is perfect on the go. Beat the Philippine heat with a Gelatissimo milkshake!

Unlike baking, preparing frozen treats offers room for lots of experimentation. You can use fresh and ripe produce, combine layers of different flavors for your cake, create milkshakes, and give your party guests some kind of legendary innovative taste totally formulated by you!
