Gelato Fiasco causes a fuss with its flavour fusion
Pancake and bacon favoured gelato, chocolate with whisky syrup, peanut butter and pretzel gelato. We’re not just creating flavour combinations on the spot – these concoctions actually exist. Gelato Fiasco is blasting tastebuds out of the water with its northeast America-inspired flavours.
Forget Heston Blumenthal’s scientific savoury recipes, the real frontier of flavour experimentation is in the realm of dessert. Gelato Fiasco is an inventive dessert offering from the minds of Portland, Maine residents Josh Davis and Bruno Tropeano, who have dared to defy dessert convention to create some truly unique flavours. These gelato pints blend some authentic tastes from the coastlines and surrounds of Maine with the traditional art of Italian gelato.
Gelato Fiasco’s flavours evoke thoughts of wooded surrounds, log cabins and quintessential American comfort cuisine. Must-try flavours include Wake N’ Bacon (pancake flavoured gelato with maple syrup and bacon flavoured candies), Maine Munchies (peanut butter gelato with salted choc pretzels) and The Log Cabin (chocolate gelato, whiskey syrup and Sriracha flake coated almonds). You can find Gelato Fiasco at 7-Eleven stores across town – consider buying a couple if you think your tastebuds can handle it.
