The first time I tried Italian gelato I was visiting Rome and was blown away by its taste. Even in the cold of winter I had to stop off to get my scoop for the day. American gelato simply does not hold a candle to the original Italian. While Americans may not be able to find a comparable gelato at
 home, one can find the delectable flavors of Italy here in France.

Amorino Gelati boutiques are thankfully sprinkled throughout Paris. The haute design of each shop may entice one to walk in the door, but its the ice cream that keeps customers coming back. From creme caramel to coconut, there is something for everyone here. Take one bite and you will be hooked for life. Amorino only uses the freshest of ingredients which gives the gelato its savory taste. You will be hard pressed to not say "mmm" with every bite.

And it's not just about the taste. Amorino captivates us with our eyes, as well. They take visual presentation to a whole new level. Using a flat metal spatula each scoop is placed on the layer before to make the cone look like a flower. No wonder it can't be resisted.

Summer may be coming to a close, but that doesn't mean you should stop eating your gelato. Even if you have to take a detour to Amorino, your taste buds will be delighted you did.

You can visit Amarino online at www.amorino.fr.

Thank you for reading and bonne journée!
