28 Gelato Flavors and Then Some
Our gelato favorites at Angelati Italia (a tongue twister!).
If you love hanging out at the mall and you love anything cold, yummy and deliciously creamy then the Angelati Italia stand will be your new favorite spot at SM Megamall.
The Angelati Gelato sisters, Marilyn and Gwen Dee, are no strangers to the gelato world. They have been serving the yummy concoctions in several restos around the city until they officially opened their stall in Megamall three weeks ago. Inspired by travels to Italy where gelatos are as much a staple as pasta and pizza, the Dee sisters received intensive training in Italy so they can serve up delish scoops of gelato in Manila. And the result? Twenty-eight scrumptious gelato flavors you can choose from! Angelati Gelato displays only several flavors on a given day, so be sure to head back after your first trip, and you are certain to find a new gelato flavor to try out.
We visited Angelati Gelato to try their kind of 'heaven in every scoop' where Karl and I, willingly had dessert before lunch.
Here are our top gelato picks:
Scoop-a-Snickers is a scoop of chocolatey goodness.
1. Scoop-a-Snickers. Okay, so we love chocolate bars as much as gelatos and this one combines the best of both worlds. One of Angelati's signature flavors, it seriously tastes like the candy bar! I was glad to know that this had almost zero fat (how this was possible, I don't' know, but I don't question things that have to do with gelato and Snickers), which was just an added bonus to the sweet, chocolatey goodness in my gelato cup.
2. Mascarpone Crumble. Italian cream cheese with a hint of coffee. Are you intrigued enough? We sure were. This flavor tastes like caramel crumble cake-turned-gelato, with its creamy texture. It's much like having your cake and gelato and eating both at the same time. We literally died and went to heaven.
Mascarpone Crumble is Italian cream cheese and coffee. Nice.
3. Stracciatella. We wanted to try as many uncommon flavors as possible and this did not disappoint. Stracciatella, an Italian flavor, is actually Italian chocolate chip. The gelato tastes ten times better than your average vanilla ice cream plus the chocolate chips are more like chocolate strips that are deliciously mixed inside the luscious concoction. Straciatella is definitely deliziosa.
A cone of Stracciatella is my new favorite dessert.
4. Kibana. An ode to summer is how I personally like to see the Kibana, with its refreshing kiwi-green color and kiwi slices. This gelato is best eaten at the beach and its pure fruity goodness reminds one of endless summer days, even when in the city.
The kibana spells summer.
5. Lemon. We learned that the lemon gelato is an acquired taste and we certainly took to liking it right away! The flavor has a surprising and unexpected kick to it and reminds you of a refreshing sorbet, both refreshing and sweetly fruity (except this gelato version is far more creamy).
A trip to Angelati Gelato is worth your while.
