Pumpkin Pie Gelato

We love our local gelato shop, Frati. We go so often that the staff knows us by name. Anthony, the owner, makes the gelato and creates the flavors. He really makes some amazing stuff. His latest flavor, for the holidays, is Pumpkin Pie Gelato. We stopped in and had some yesterday. He has been making a pan everyday and selling out everyday. Bits of pie filling, crust and extra cinnamon, it’s delicious! (And I am not really that fond of pumpkin pie.)

So there’s a little something to try, if you’re in the neighborhood.

Sweet, Sweet Gelato!

We haven’t even gone to Italy yet and I am already smitten by gelato. I have had it a few times and have always enjoyed it, but when we saw a new shop opening downtown, I knew it would be my downfall.

We stopped by today (our second trip), met the owner (a man who lived in Italy for 25 years and offered to plan our itinerary with us), and had a fabluous after lunch treat. We had what I think is called an “Affogato” gelato with 2 shots of espresso poured over it. It was fabulous!

The shop is called Frati, here in Fullerton.
