If you’ve ever wondered “What exactly is the difference between Ice Cream and Gelato?”, you’d be forgiven. They are both creamy and delicious. 

However, as L’Arte del Gelato explains:

“Artisanal gelato, meant to be produced and consumed directly, requires no additives or preservatives. Additionally, it is produced in a way which adds very little air and volume. Ice cream, on the other hand, is generally intended to be stored for longer periods and contains a larger quantity of air.”

Mystery solved! Now it’s time to try one of their creations – which also an all-natural product, made by hand with no artificial colors.
