Italy is Only a Scoop Away


Just when we thought our gelato was perfect, we found a way to make it better.

Mirroring how authentic gelato is served in Italy, we’re rolling out something new, starting with the gelato bar in our Fort Worth store: We're serving your favorite flavors from a Pozzetti. The chrome dipping case is designed to give you the best tasting gelato possible by reducing exposure to open air, which can cause oxidation.

Don't worry. The gelato you love is still cooling under those shiny lids. Keeping our gelato covered keeps texture soft, smooth, and creamy. The case also allows for better temperature control. With multiple separate temperature settings, our gelatos and sorbets will always be at just the perfect temperature to showcase your favorite flavors.

Cheesemongers Choice: Challerhocker


Before finding Challerhocker (pronounced "holler hocker") I would describe my experiences with Swiss cheese as unexciting. I had never been won over to the side of Alpine cheese. Emmental and Gruyere are great cheeses for fondue and cooking, but I wasn't going out of my way to eat them. That was until Challerhocker came through the doors of my store and changed my life... forever.
