Gelato

Gelato is like ice cream but lower in fat and more fashionable. It is smooth, denser and more intensely flavored than ice cream. Invented in Italy and still a favorite dessert there, gelato has gained tremendous popularity in the U.S., where it is served not only in Italian restaurants, but in the sorts of cafes where ice cream would be considered too childish. It is served in a small cup with a small spoon, and typical sundae toppings such as hot fudge, marshmallow, or maraschino cherries are proibito.
