Without cold desserts to keep their gears from overheating, smoking stomachs would seek relief by crawling inside air-conditioning units and snuggling up against blocks of dry ice. Keep tireless tummies comfortably cool with today's Groupon: for $7, you get four small 4-ounce servings of gourmet gelato or sorbetto, in cups or cones, at Splendora's Gelato Cafe in Charlottesville (a $14 value).
Splendora's Gelato Cafe specializes in authentic, artisanal Italian gelato and sorbetto. Each house-made batch of gelato emerges from a combination of simple ingredients including skim-milk powder, sugar, and hormone-free, locally sourced whole milk and heavy cream. Splendora’s feeds fresh, frosty mounds with ground nuts, cocoa powder, pure vanilla, and fruit purées to create the variety of flavor options available each day. Harken back to the treat’s European origins with hazelnut and dulce de leche, or let pistachio and salted caramel press tongues firmly into the winter season. A selection of dairy-free sorbetto such as mango caters to tropical longings and lactose-less needs. Available flavors vary daily.
