Welcome to Day #4 of Cold Chocolate Theme Week, featuring frozen and refrigerated desserts and bars with chocolate.
Today's Chocolate and Cream Swirl (cup) was made in Italy* distributed by Bindi North America (Kearny, NJ).
Bindi desserts had their start with the Bindi family in Italy in 1946; and were, at the very beginning, delivered by bicycle. Currently, they offer a line of different, Italian-inspired gelato flavors in single-serving cups. (The Limoncello flavor also looked good; however, I could not find other flavors in my local store.)
Today's sundae style gelato in a cup had a creamy and light (almost whipped) texture and mouthfeel--light contrasting visually with the dark, swirl(s) of dark chocolate. It was a nicely balanced blend and a convenient serving size for an frozen snack.
