I'll admit, I was skeptical. People who know me know I'm extraordinarily picky when it comes to frozen treats, and even when I was in Italy I had a tough time finding gelato that was up to my standards. I will also admit to being impressed by the selection at Gelato Simply Italian, where you can sample most of the flavors before buying.

I got three different flavors: Mojito, Hazelnut, and Cioccolato Matto - the latter literally means "chocolate crazy," and if memory serves me right, it consists of chocolate gelato, chocolate fudge, and chocolate chips (or some similar crazy combination of chocolate³ concoction).

So what did I think? Well, I must concede that my friend was absolutely right! The flavors were natural, rich, and just divine. Gelato Simply Italian exceeded my lofty standards and truly rivaled some of the best gelato I had in Italy. I mean, Italy! Now that's pretty freakin' impressive.
