New Fresh Gelato Flavors of Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Mint and Rum Raisin plus Traditional Italian Hot Chocolate

What goes well with Aunt Mabel’s pumpkin pie or Grandma’s fruitcake? Mio Gelato’s handmade artisan gelato in more than 70 rotating flavors, including winter favorites: cinnamon, hazelnut, rum raisin, and pumpkin. Mio Gelato will hand pack any combination of flavors in a pint ($6.95), quart ($13.90) or gallon ($50). The gallon will easily feed 25 people with 2 scoops each. A perfect topping for holiday pies or simply served alone, Mio Gelato’s Italian gelato is to be savored and shared.

“We handcraft every flavor right in the store” says Bob Lightman, Mio Gelato’s owner and chief gelato maker. “Our texture is the real thing…soft, light and creamy and, of course, truly Italian.”

Italian Chocolato Caldo

A special blend of hot chocolate imported from Italy is now available at Mio Gelato. “We have an authentic Italian machine that slow cooks the chocolate so the creamy, rich texture develops,” says Lightman. “It is like drinking warm chocolate pudding.”

Panini Sandwiches:

• Genoa Salami with basil and fontina cheese

• Prosciutto with arugula and parmesan

• Capicollo, a spicy ham with tomatoes, arugula, and fontina

• Caprese with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella

• Vegetarian selection with grilled eggplant, zucchini and spinach
