Each Dolce Vita Gelato Cafe honors the dessert's Italian ancestry with an authentic recipe and a repertoire of 42 kosher-friendly flavors. Best-selling classics include real-bean vanilla and Belgian–style chocolate, as well as fresh, fruit-hoarding varieties such as strawberry, mango, and lemon; trailblazing palates may prefer foreign tastes such as the dulce de leche or chocolate Ferrero Rocher. Because Dolce Vita's gelato contains only 8% butterfat, the sweet, silky treats make a perfect snack option for those watching their waistline or those who typically enjoy their dessert with a side of bacon. Wrap hands around a small cup or sugar cone ($3.75–$5) or a large cup or waffle cone ($6.50 each) to get a taste of a spoon-optional sustenance that drives ice cream to shame and popsicles back to their former careers as extremely perishable traffic batons . Gelato prices may vary among store locations.
