I like the texture of gelato better than ice cream.So it's gelato for me. What's the difference for you.Taste ,textue,something else. For super market brand I like Talenti gelato. And your choice is ?
I like gelato for it's smooth texture.
I cannot tell the difference, but I do tend to stick with premium ice creams. Isn't there more sugar in gelato?
dunno about the sugar, but there definitely is more saturated fat in premium ice cream than in gelato.
Gelato is also kept at a higher temperature which accounts for its softer texture. I never heard anything about it having more sugar, but as it is eaten in a less frozen state, it may taste sweeter.
Not a choice I can make...I like them both!
I think I like the taste and initial texture of gelato more than ice cream, but once it starts to melt it becomes a drippy mess.I really prefer frozen yogurt!
"but once it starts to melt it becomes a drippy mess."
Even in a "coppa" (cup), which is the ONLY way to eat gelato? Alos, if you are allowing gelato to melt, you are not eating it fast enough! lol :)
Ceteris paribus, it's definitely gelato over ice cream.
But I would only buy gelato from a gelateria, never prepackaged from a market.
If I'm buying prepackaged frozen treats then it's ice cream.
I would do the same. No gelaterias where I live. I have had the gelato in Rome and in Florence. Sigh.
Gelato from a real gelateria, my homemade gelato or ice cream, ice cream made fresh from an ice cream parlor, though I am not really an ice cream fan as I've gotten older. That is my order of preference.
My fav places are in Italy at getateria's. However, I've gotten some excellent gelato at Costco's food court, can you believe that!
