Crosta & Mollica launches new Artisanal Italian gelato range

15 June, 22

Crosta & Mollica has expanded its dessert range with the launch of Gelato – a traditional frozen Italian dessert – in three flavours: Amarena Cherry & Mascarpone, Gianduia Hazelnut & Cocoa Cream, and Limoncello Sicilian Lemon. Available to buy in Waitrose stores nationwide from 20th June 2022 with distribution across additional customers later in the summer, in 450ml packs RRP £5.75.

The brand first entered the dessert category earlier this year, with its incredibly popular Tartufi and Tiramisù. And now, the modern Italian food brand has created a delicious new Gelato range just in time for summer, as it continues to capitalise on the growing UK market for Italian delicacies.

Crosta & Mollica’s Gelato mantecato (meaning “whipped” in English) uses the traditional gelateria slow-whipping process to achieve the light, smooth texture that authentic artisan Italian Gelato is known for. The gelato is then finished with a delicate ‘swirl’, reminiscent of the sculpted waves of gelato spotted in gelateria glass freezers across Italy. To ensure the highest quality, Crosta & Mollica Gelato is made in Italy, in small batches, by a second generation family producer, who has been running gelato shops for over 40 years.

Crosta & Mollica Gelato is made with fresh Italian milk and a lower fat content compared to Northern European ice cream, giving greater flavour intensity.

The range consists of:

– AMARENA CHERRY & MASCARPONE GELATO: made with fresh mascarpone and the highest-quality Italian Amarena cherries.

– GIANDUIA HAZELNUT & COCOA CREAM GELATO: an Italian gelateria staple, which is a combination of cocoa cream and IGP hazelnut nibs from Piemonte.

– LIMONCELLO SICILIAN LEMON GELATO: made with Primo Fiore Sicilian lemons and finished with a splash of vodka – an authentic Italian recipe.
