The Origin Of Gelato

The best way to enjoy a hot summer day is to sit back and relax with something cold and refreshing. Gelato is an age-old delicacy that dates back thousands of years. The earliest beginnings of frozen desserts are recorded in 3000 B.C. when Asian cultures discovered they could consume crushed ice and flavorings. Five hundred years later, it became a custom for Egyptian pharaohs to offer their guests a cup of ice sweetened with fruit juices. Italians joined in as the Romans began the ritual of eating the ice of the volcanoes Etna and Vesuvius, and covering it with honey. Now, gelato has become very popular amongst Americans because of its intense flavor and freshness. Nina’s Fresh Bakery serves fresh gelato in many delicious flavors.
