    Gadzooks, that's a lot of chocolate.

    The mosquitoes are humming, the air has grown stagnant and the sweat has stopped evaporating from my brow.

    Yep, it’s almost summer in the Ohio Valley.

    Now, we all promised that we wouldn’t complain about the heat after such a long, dreary winter (I wasn’t complaining in the opening — those were scientific observations). Instead, let’s cool off with the Ninth Annual 25¢ Ice Cream Social at Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen.

    From noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday, May 31, all single scoops of ice cream are 25 cents at any of the 10 Pie Kitchen locations. There is some fine print: waffle cones and all other scoops such as doubles and triples are normal price.

    So go forth with your change, friends, and treat yo’ self to a scoop. Just don’t complain about the heat.

  2. It’s that time again – 25-cent ice cream scoops at Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen, 6.22.13

    Gadzooks, that's a lot of chocolate.

    The temperature has climbed, and the humidity has settled over the Ohio Valley. A scoop of ice cream sure sounds delightful right about now.

    Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen will offer ice cream scoops for 25 cents each tomorrow, June 22. The offer is good at all 10 Pie Kitchen locations from noon to 5 p.m.

    Plan your day accordingly.

  3. Hear that music? The GelatoMobile might be in your neighborhood

    Be on the lookout for the Gelatomobile (Picture courtesy of Kristin Gilbert).

    *UPDATE: The GelatoMobile will be at the Gray Street Farmers’ Market from 10:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Burger’s Market from 3 – 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25.

    The family behind Gelato Gilberto have taken their product to the streets.

    Justin and Kristin Gilbert, the owners of the Gelato Gilberto shop in Norton Commons, rolled out the GelatoMobile last week. They have snaked their way around Louisville neighborhoods to sell gelato pops, a frozen version of the rich, Italian dessert.

    I first experienced Gelato Gilberto at the Jeffersonille Italian Festival a few weeks ago. A big bowl of the chocolate gelato made me swoon. Imagine my delight when I learned that the Gilberts had created their gelato truck.

    The Gilberts have always wanted some kind of vehicle to sell their wares, Kristin said. At one point, the couple explored buying a double-decker bus from London in which they would make and sell gelato (and live on the top floor).

    The couple currently serve three different kinds of gelato pops out of the GelatoMobile — chocolate with sprinkles, strawberry sorbet and a Bomb Pop-like combination of strawberry and Blue Sky flavors, Kristin said. Each pop is $3 or two for $5.

    “It helps to have a friend,” Kristin said.

    Don’t worry if you visit the brick-and-mortar Gelato Gilberto — the shop is still open at 9434 Norton Commons Boulevard. You can also get pints of Gelato Gilberto at a few area grocery stores, including Whole Foods Louisville, Paul’s Fruit Market and Earth Fare.

    With this recent blast of warm weather, Kristin said the GelatoMobile will probably be on the streets through the end of this week. Then, they will let the truck hibernate until spring.

    “We’re having a hugely good time,” Kristin said.

    Do you want the GelatoMobile to visit your neighborhood? Leave a comment, or contact the Gilberts directly at justin@gelatogilberto.com or visit their Facebook page.
