We are always looking for good summer dessert that is light, cold, and delicious. It’s just too hot here for heavy baked desserts and these floats were just what we needed after a recent BBQ. I’ve also been making for afternoon treats for the kids and they are loving them.
Each variety of gelato is made with regional Italian ingredients and milk from 100% grass-fed cows. It’s then slow-churned for a creamy, smooth texture, and rich flavor. The products in this new line at Kroger are individually sourced, crafted, and imported from the country of origin and sealed with a unique “find number.” All of these flavors sound amazing, but I ended up deciding on the HemisFares Strawberry Gelato — FIND NO. 54. Y’all…the flavor is amazing!
As I mentioned, we’ve been enjoying these Sparkling Strawberry Floats all summer long. They are the perfect mid-afternoon treat when the temps soar to over 120F. We even hit 132F at my house a couple weeks ago and we had to cool off somehow…I think the kids had 2 of these that day. They are seriously that delicious with a hint of coconut, creamy strawberry gelato, and lemon lime soda.
My helper couldn’t pass up the HemisFares Stracciatella Gelato. I mean, what’s not to love about Italian sweet cream and dark chocolate flakes in this HemisFares Find #52.
I love shopping at my local Fry’s (part of the Kroger family) and the new HermisFares products that they’ve added to their selection of products makes me so happy. I love when I don’t have to go to a speciality store to get quality, high end products. Make sure to check out the HemisFares Facebook page to learn more about the brand.
I pre-scooped all the gelato onto a baking sheet and re-froze the scoops, using a size 24 scoop. It made making these drinks a breeze and kept the gelato from being mostly melted (from having to let it thaw a little for scooping) when I added them to the cups.
