It's fresh, its tasty. It's Gelato Italiano
There are different people and different people have different taste, some like spicy food, some like sweet food, some like a mixture of spicy and sweet food, but there is no one as such who does not like ice-creams. Everyone prefers to have ice-cream usually after food, but I prefer to have anytime and every time. There are many brands in india, and recently many more brands have come up and being noticed by many of us, some of the famous brands are quality walls, vadilal, amore, naturals, amul, baskin-robbins but I would like to mention one brand which has really impressed me GELATO
There are many reason why would I choose this brand over the others, been trying this brand since past 2 years I still have the same craze and love for it as I had since day 1 when I 1st had it.
One of my friend was well known about this brand, the offers and the flavors, he was a regular at gelato. It just happened that my friend took me at this place and he purchased a scoop of some chocolate flavour, and when I took the first bite it was a love at 1st bite. I immediately reached out for my wallet and purchased another scoop. This was how I got to know about this brand, its a Italian brand which is slowly and steadily picking up market in india.
Few Highlight and why should one prefer a gelato brand over other brands, in short Gelato vs Ice-creams
An ice-cream has 10-25% fat content, Whereas fruit gelato has 0% fat content and non-fruit gelato has 5% fat content. So one can relish the great taste of gelato as its melts not only in the mouth but in our heart too.
An ice cream is prepared by mixing cream, milk and sugar and adding 100% air which doubles its volume. Gelato has just 30% air, thus making it denser, creamier in texture and richer in taste.
Ice creams are produced in bulk and stored for months. Whereas, gelato is produced fresh in small quantities following the traditional italian method, Hence this keeps the ice cream fresher and tastier.
Few likes and dislikes :
Brand picking itself up in the market : Few years ago this brand was not known, but it has used the proper marketing strategy of offering discounts leaving behind people with addiction for the flavors, and main reason being its taste, it has picked itself suddenly in indian market.
Wide range of flavors : Every month this brand launches a new flavor and it puts it on discount on the 1st of every month. So this sums it up that the variety is large, and one can choose between a huge variety. There are about 200 flavors that gelato has launched till date and the count doesn't seem to stop. Good for us as we get to discover different flavors which we wouldn't have even dreamt of.
Flavor of the month : As every month gelato launches a new flavor it puts it on discount on the 1st of the month. The flavor of the month attracts many people and one can find gelato totally packed on the 1st. Frankly speaking hardly anyone visits this place for the rest of the month. The sale of the flavor of the month is so high that even if we compare the earnings of other flavors of the entire month with flavor of the month earning on just the 1st of the month, earnings of flavor of the month are more.
Don't get me wrong that other flavors are not being sold out, its just the craze for the discounts that mainly attracts couples, kids as well as old people who love ice cream.
The taste gets even more better everytime : Every time when a new flavor is released, it seems to be even more better and tempting, all the flavors are very good and worth so much so that one is always confused as to which flavor should one select.
Low on fat and very fresh and denser : As explained earlier the ice creams are fat free especially fruit flavor, and the ice creams are always fresh, if kept for a very longtime then even ice-creams don't taste its best but due to small unit manufacturing the ice-creams are fresh and denser too.
100% Vegetarian : The ice-creams are 100% vegetarian, many a times there are some non-veg stabilizer as well as eggs that are used in order to make the ice-cream denser but gelato is purely veg so any one and every one can go in at gelato.
Presentation and hygiene : This place is quite hygienic and the presentation is quite good. And one more thing to be mentioned is that the customer support is quite good. They even greet the user which I found very special and nice.
Few things that I dislike :
Accommodation : The accommodation for the customer is very limited, And I've noticed this at every outlet of gelato. Outlets which are at malls do have a good seating place as the outlets lies in the food court so ample seating place is there. But at single shop outlet there is no proper accommodation for people.
Some flavors are quite expensive : There are some flavors which are very very expensive but worth a try once. This is one place where I feel that the money that we pay is not worth, but still the flavors are very tempting and delicious to try.
One small scoop can get as expensive as 90 rupees. There are various cost ranging from 30-90, 90 being the most expensive.
The scoop aren't upto the mark : The ice-cream is not scooped out properly for the flavor of the month. But for 12 rupees what can one expect more, its still worth buying a scoop not properly scooped with the taste that comes along, wish it was scooped more nicely.
The sodexo meal coupons are not accepted : The meal coupons are not accepted so corporate customer cant get discounts, but one good thing is that complimentary coupons are accepted. But discounts are not offered on a large basis.
Credit cards are not accepted : The credit cards are not accepted here, this is also a bad thing as around 20% people do shopping with credit cards.
