On a sunny day like today it was the perfect excuse to go check out the Gelato Festival. The festival is touring around Italy this summer, and luckily this week it stopped in Milan.

The festival is a place to try different flavours of italian ice-creams, and to join in on the fun you have to purchase the The Gelato Card. It entitles you to 5 tubs of different ice-cream’s + another tub when you vote for your favourite competing flavour. The great thing is that if you can’t manage 5 ice-creams in one day you can save the card and come back another day.

You can’t go wrong with nutella flavoured anything. The ice-cream was deliciously nutty, with just the right amount of nutella on the top. Only down-side is that it’s a bit heavy, but overall a good scoop!

strawberry & vodka

When I saw the vodka based ice-cream options I knew I had to try one. As these are sorbets there are no milk involved, and it was therefore a good choice to have after the full-on nutella bomb. I went for the strawberry & vodka flavour, which was nice but a tad too much vodka for my liking. The strawberry flavour itself was delicious, but unfortunately the vodka overpowered it. Definitely a grown-up ice-cream options for vodka lovers.

Vanilla, gianduia & peanutbutter

I love peanuts, so I had to try this ice-cream. The saltiness from the peanutbutter combined with the sweetness of the vanilla ice-cream and gianduia is a match made in heaven. I might have to go back for seconds. :-D
