Today, Day #7 of Chocolate and Espresso Theme Week, I rewarded myself with some gelato. Naia has many wonderful chocolate-related flavors. "Cobblestone" is similar to rocky road, and contained chocolate gelato, marshmallows, and toasted hazelnuts.
The Naia Espresso gelato was a bit like affogato, one of my favorite desserts: a shot of espresso poured over vanilla gelato.
Thank you to Natasha (shown at right) who helped me pick out these two flavors.
And, finally, it's not every ice cream store that has a gelato cone "bouquet." Extra points for creativity.
