There’s a new ice cream truck in town—and it’s heading to a festival near you.
Who needs ice cream when you can have artisanal gelato? Keep your eyes peeled for the Fiasco Gelato truck this summer. As the world’s first mobile gelato truck, they take their desserts very seriously. The gelato is made fresh daily, with incredible flavours, such as Lavender Lemonade and PB&J. We were very partial to the Strawberry Balsamic. We love the fact that there are creative dairy-free options available’take a taste of Blackberry Iced Tea, Blueberry Basil or Mango Pineapple.
Flavours are seasonal and change regularly, which is all the more reason to keep going back. A second truck will be up and running soon, exclusively offering gelato sandwiches made gourmet cookies (look out for the S’mores Gelato Sandwich).
If you want/need/crave a more immediate taste, visit the Fiasco Gelato test kitchen in the southeast (416 Meridian Rd SE). It’s open Thursdays and Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm and you can take home fresh flavours by the pint. Keep a look out for their Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea-Salt Brownie Sandwiches’pure yum.
I scream, you scream, we all scream…for gelato.
