Gelato: Italy

Gelato is an Italian favorite sold in specialty shops throughout the country. The Italian sweet differs from traditional ice creams because it has a lower butterfat content and a lighter texture. There is any number of flavors depending on where you go, but places like Grom (one of Florence's best-known gelaterias) always have classics like nocciola, chocolate, stracciatella, and vanilla on hand.
