The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon for gelati, italian ice, and other frozen confections at JJ Fitelli's Italian Ices and Gelati in Kendall. Choose between the following options:
• For $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats.
• For $7, you get $15 worth of frozen treats.
Featured on NBC and CBS, JJ Fitelli's serves italian ice and other frozen confections made in-store amid bright walls and whimsical wall paintings. Made fresh each day, 16-20 varieties of italian ice ($3.25–$7) boast luscious creaminess without even a hint of dairy to mar their powerful flavor or attract feral cookies. Several standard selections, including tart South Beach lemon, dulcet coconut, and chocolate-chocolate chip, sit steadfast against a regularly rotating selection of innovative flavors such as horchata, and a cornucopia of all-fruit flavors, including cherry, mango, and strawberry-banana.
JJ Fitelli’s signature creation, the gelati, is a tiered spire of italian ice and yogurt or ice cream that towers precipitously while waiting to be consumed ($4–$9.50). The shop's no-sugar-added nonfat yogurt, which contains only 11 calories per ounce, and 95%-fat-free ice cream ($3.50–$8) stick to time-tested chocolate and vanilla varieties. Both owners of JJ Fitelli's spend hours each week experimenting with new flavors, painstakingly melding the scientific method with powerful culinary imaginations.
Origin Stories: The Name’s Jason. Jason Jason.
After a lifelong stint in the food industry, seven years of retirement had left JJ Fitelli’s co-founder Jason Jason feeling antsy. So he and Bruce Fitell channeled their New York origins into a new project—delivering the Big Apple’s signature style of italian ice to a yogurt-swamped Florida. Their efforts engendered fierce loyalty in the area’s Brooklyn ex-pats, many of whom swear the ices would be straight out of their childhoods if they were only served in paper squeeze cups. Jason Jason is currently working on a dulce de leche flavor.
