If I could eat just one type of dessert for the rest of my life, it would probably have to be ice cream or gelato. TBH, there's nothing quite like the frozen treat and from experience, even a small serving can instantly make my day better. Now, you may be wondering: What *exactly* is the difference between the two? ICYDK, gelato is creamier, smoother, and silkier than ice cream. There's also more milk and less fat involved. So if you're craving something sweet, consider ordering some gelato. It would definitely be a good pick. ;)
Treat yourself to scoops of *flavorful* gelato from these stores.
