Frost Gelato in Gilbert

My daughter came home with a very tasty request recently.

She wanted us to go to the newly opened Frost Gelato Shop for a club fundraiser. Due to a trip to Italy as a teenager, I love gelato! It’s been a rare treat since then.

Frost is one of the two local places I know of that serve gelato. The other is our own Queen Creek Olive Mill.  Frost is located in the San Tan Village outdoor mall, so you can take a break from shopping and enjoy this delicious frozen treat. The first thing that catches your eye is the long glass case filled with 30 plus flavors of gelato and more than a dozen sorbets.

Did I mention they give out samples? With all those choices, it’s a good thing. After tasting several flavors like Seasalt Caramel and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, I chose Gianduia, which is a chocolate with hazelnut delight. Think frozen Nutella! I haven’t even made it to the sorbets – maybe next time. Maybe not, I’m not sure I can get past the Gianduia.

Gelato is always a little pricey, but it’s filling because it’s so dense. And like I said, it’s a rare treat. While you’re treating yourself, waffle cones and toppings are available. Or you could try their milkshakes or root beer floats. I personally have my eye on the Frostbites, gelato bites dipped in chocolate.

But don’t feel too guilty about this treat. A serving of gelato has less than half the calories of a serving of ice cream. It also has about a fifth the fat!
