- Comments Off on Zarlengo’s Gelato Cup – Carry A Scoop of Heaven
It’s simple enough, real ingredients, churned into a delicious frozen treat powered behind the force of real flavors. Amongst the rumble-stripped Joe Orr road, as if dropped from above, a tiny shack churns incredibly delicious magic. The way you know you’ve made it is a simple sign stating the adventure has just begun. After an order, spreading out in their patio sandwiched between a driveway and a parking lot is reminiscent of our favorite childhood ice cream joints. We envy those who grew up snacking on Zarlengo’s – but luckily, we’ve brought some of their treasure to our place.
They’ve pumped out the goods for over 25 years, their background was in construction but knew their area needed a good place for families to get ice cream. At first, mixes were purchased to get them going, but after a renewed focus on crafting their own treats – a focus on quality. Creating ice cream bars, dreamy Italian Ice, and pure exquisite gelato all made up a spread of having the best around – and people took note. It’s important to the Zarlengo’s to carry on the family tradition of small-batch freshest possible quality; each recipe made from scratch by one of Zarlengo boys and made with real pride. They like to say that their “products are handmade by [their] family to yours.”
In that authenticity, in the knowing of making something from one family to another, is real true flavor. Currently we’ve picked up four grab-and-go Zarlengo’s Gelato Cups – each one more yummy than the last. The Salted Caramel features thick layers of sweet-and-salty islands amidst dense and luscious vanilla gelato – force a spoon through and get a bite of both for heaven-in-a-spoon. It may not come as a shock, but in the right place, Nutella is our jam – and Zarlengo’s sandwiches thick slats of nutella between lightly nutty-chocolate gelato, my goodness. Their Almond Joy takes softly coconut flavored ice cream with almonds and pads it between rich dark chocolate; making for a sweet hard to share. If Chocolate is your game (and who’s isn’t?) Zarlengo’s Chocolate Chocolate Chip gelato is for you – simply: divine.
Get your cup and get walking with a bit of heaven or pool a few cups for the family, and know the Zarlengo’s pride and 25+ years went into crafting each bite. Want to give Zarlengo’s a shout-out? Leave us a comment below, we’d love to hear from ya!
