Gelato can be served any number of ways--in a cone, as a sandwich, or just scooped right into your mouth by some guy in a truck. Have it your way with this Groupon.

In addition to the savings included in this Groupon, customers can also take advantage of The Gelato Fiasco's Frozen Code discount; for every degree below freezing (32 degrees) the outside temperature is at the moment of purchase, customers receive 1 percent off their gelato or sorbetto purchases. The Frozen Code stays in effect from the first day of winter until the last day of winter.
The Gelato Fiasco
Some might say that The Gelato Fiasco is the most delicious type of fiasco there is. Joshua Davis and Bruno Tropeano would certainly agree. They began their mission to perfect Italy's favorite frozen treat in 2007. Nearly six years, two locations, and more than 1,000 flavors later, their signature gelato frequently earns plaudits from gourmands at MSNBC, Fortune, CNN/Money, and Every Day with Rachael Ray. Their new Old Port store also earned praise from taste testers on the ground, winning awards such as Best Ice Cream in Maine in Down East magazine's 2013 Reader's Choice Awards and Food Network Magazine's "50 States, 50 Ice cream Treats" accolade.
Each day, the team's trained ice cream makers whip up more than 30 flavors of gelato and sorbetto, ranging from mango and brownie batter to Maine wild blueberry crisp, espresso chip, and dark chocolate caramel sea salt. The Gelato Fiasco’s artisanal methods produce treats using only milk from Maine farms, natural cane sugar, and heaping scoops of fresh fruits, roasted nuts, and high-quality candies and confections. They also craft dairy-free sorbettos in flavors including balsamic-strawberry and chocolate noir. Gelato and sorbetto alike arrives in dishes, housemade waffle cones, or full pints to go; customers are also encouraged to mix flavors to create customized treats. Seasonal favorites are offered such as Pumpkin Pie Gelato and Fall in Bourbon County Gelato, created with Wild Turkey bourbon mixed with cinnamon-glazed peanuts and pecans. They also provide warm beverages during the fall season including God of Thunder, an exclusive house roast.
