I made some new friends over at Revolution Gelato, and they invited me over to visit and sample some of their goodies. This already sounds like the start of a beautiful friendship!
Located in East Atlanta Village’s Global Grub Collective, this award-winning gelato fits in perfectly with the international flavor influences of this casual food hall. Check out this lineup, courtesy of the Revolution Gelato website:
Cardamon Kiss: Warm, seductive cardamom (aka “Queen of Spices”) matches perfectly with the subtle sweetness of orange blossom. Kissed with a hint of vanilla, they combine for one erotic exotic experience. Yes, these are three classic aphrodisiacs…share it wisely.
Chocolate Fantasy: Imagine combining the deep, complex flavor of dark chocolate with the satin smoothness of fine milk chocolate. What you get is ultra creamy, intensely chocolatey, and with a slightly dry finish. If that reads to you like a fine wine, it’s with good reason: let it breathe and it gets even better.
Majestic Mango: Alphonso mango is the variety that has come to be known as ‘King of Mangoes’ due to its silky smooth texture and enchanting aroma. Naturally, we settle for nothing less than the best (and lots of it). With a thick, velvety body and bright flavor, this is gelato fit for royalty.
Nekkid Espresso: Our single-origin coffee is called “Nekkid” because it is processed using a natural ‘unwashed’ method that retains the beans’ inherent sweetness. Full-bodied and flavorful, if you find yourself replacing your morning cup with it…well, you wouldn’t be the first!”
Orange Dream: It starts when you open the lid to the scent of fresh orange. Then the gelato hits your palate and flavors arrive in waves. Top notes of bright orange zest slowly fade and blend with the smooth vanilla, cut with a pleasant tang from the orange juice. Did you swoon a little? The spoon dips back in…
Triple Vanilla: We take issue with the reputation vanilla has earned as being “plain”. Our version highlights the rich complexity of the second-most expensive spice in the world by combining three distinctive varieties — Madagascan, Mexican, Tahitian — to provide balanced and full-bodied flavor from start to finish. Fantastic on its own, it will also beautifully complement nearly anything you wish to pair with it.
Anyone who thinks of these sorts of ingredient combos has to be some sort of genius, #amirite?!
I was interested in the Cardamom Kiss and wondered how this warm Indian spice would taste in a cold gelato. Spoiler Alert: IT TASTES AMAZING!!
Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I thought I was being adventurous by choosing this flavor, and I was. My taste buds were taken on a trip with this combo of vanilla, orange blossom, and of course the cardamom. And the almonds and chocolate I put on top just took things to the next level. Usually, I’m a plain ole vanilla girl. Cardamom Kiss and Revolution Gelato has changed everything!
And, not only is this gelato delightful, it’s also DAIRY FREE! Yep, they’ve managed to get rid of the dairy but keep the traditional gelato taste that we know and love. Sounds pretty revolutionary to me.
Revolution Gelato is also…
- Gluten free (though their cones & cookie dough contain gluten)
- Soy free
- Egg free
- Kosher pareve
Revolution Gelato’s tagline is You Can Have it All. And from the looks (and the taste) of it, I’d say they are absolutely correct.
