OMD – Oh My Delicious! Ciao Bella Gelato

In Uncategorized by savvysassymoms95 Comments

I can just imagine the Ciao Bella team sitting in bright orange, over-stuffed chairs at a long pink conference table with lime green and purple light fixtures hanging overhead.   I’m almost positive that right next to the espresso machine is a uber-fancy gelato machine, beautiful glass bowls and colorful spoons.  If there ever was a company I’d like to work for, I’m pretty sure it’s Ciao Bella Gelato. They love pink just as much as Savvy Sassy Moms so I am sure we’d get along just fine and I would have no problem being paid in product!

What is Gelato?
Technically, gelato is an Italian-style ice cream that contains less butterfat (a.k.a milkfat) and less air by volume—resulting in a denser, creamier and more flavorful frozen treat. However, Ciao Bella defines gelato as some seriously good tasting ice cream.

What is Sorbet?
Sorbet is water ice that is made up of fruit juice or puree and does not contain dairy.  Here at Ciao Bella we just call it yummy goodness, because we use 65-85% pure fruit to provide an intense flavor experience that can only be described as True-to-the-Fruit

WARNING:  You may instantly feel the urge to get up and go to the store to buy 6 pints of Ciao Bella Gelato.  If you are pregnant, please proceed!

Favorite Mom Flavors:
Blackberry Cabernet Sorbet
Peach Ginger Sorbet
Prickly Pear Sorbet
Key Lime Graham Gelato
Chocolate Sorbet

Favorite’s for the Kids: Baby Bellas
They are portable and no scooping necessary, the spoon is right under the lid!  

Tahitian Vanilla, Tropically Smooth Mango, and Blood Orange
You may want to say Red Orange, because my daughter looked at me and said “Gross there’s Blood in it?”

Award Winning:
The Key lime squares  are OMD “  Oh My Delicious!!  

Easy on the Thighs:
Blood orange sorbet bars  (60 calories, fat free, refreshing)

Savvy Sassy Suggestion:
Bring a pint of blackberry cabernet to a get together with other mom’s or a dinner party.  It is cheaper ($5) than a cheap bottle of wine AND it makes a much better impression since it is considered a slightly more expensive ice cream.

I wouldn’t make you sit through all that tempatation for nothing!  One Lucky Winner will Recieve:
4 Pints of Ice Cream  A Gelato Machine The Ciao Bella Book of Gelato and Sorbetto ($350 value people)

  10. I discovered Ciao Bella a few years ago at Whole Foods and have been a fan ever since. I’ve had to switch from Gelato to sorbet because after my RNY surgery, I reverted to my childhood ailment of lactose intolerance — small price to pay (and sometimes I pay it anyway).. my four TDF flavors are Prickly Pear (because it reminds me of home), Lemon Zest (because I’m 1/4 Arab and we eat lemon on EVERYTHING), Coconut (because it’s so creamy, I forget it’s sorbet!) and Belgian Chocolate (because, as I said, sometimes I pay it, anyway). 🙂 Drop me off on a desert island!

  11. TDF flavors: Blood Orange, Prickly Pear, Blackberry Cabernet & Dark Chocolate

    Feel free to invite me to the SSM Laboratories for an extensive study on the subtle differences between ‘Tahitian Vanilla’ & ‘Madagascar Vanilla’…. as well as the variations such as: ‘Italian Caramel’ and ‘Caramel Toffee’ I’ll be sure to let you have one of my pints when I win, BTW.
