El Rustico Gelato

El RusticoWe’re consistently impressed by the creations we get to taste from Askinosie Chocolate in Springfield, Missouri. Sean Askinosie and his staff have been making some of the best chocolate we’ve ever tasted for several years now, and recently we received a hefty supply of their fabulous El Rustico bars from Zingerman’s Deli. The El Rustico is made with very dark chocolate studded with delicate bites of real vanilla beans and crisp sugar crystals. Its texture is also very well suited for gelato making—it crunches perfectly when frozen.

Inspired by the full-flavored, elegantly simple taste of Askinosie’s bars we’ve incorporated them into a special mixture of our signature Roadhouse Vanilla Gelato. Exhibiting some of the characteristics of a traditional cookies’n’cream, the El Rustico Gelato is perhaps the best combination of vanilla and chocolate we’ve ever attempted, and we’re happy to say that we have limited quantities available at both the Creamery Shop and the Deli in Ann Arbor. Visit either location for a taste of this exciting new gelato!
