Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Mediterranean Theme Week; and it was also very hot outside. Something cold was in order. Villa Dolce Gelato's (gluten free) Italian Kiss Chocolate Hazelnut gelato was a good choice.

The packaging for this plastic tub of gelato -- decorated on top with bits of hazelnut and a light drizzling of chocolate syrup -- was reminiscent of displays you'd see in a gelato shop (with side-by-side stainless steel rectangular pans filled with your favorite flavors of this frozen dessert). It was no surprise then to see that Villa Dolce, based in Van Nuys, CA, also sells gelato pans and other supplies.
