When I mentioned dark chocolate gelato with Chili peppers being my ultimate favorite in gelato flavors to a friend living in the United States, she responded “Eww. Sound disgusting”, but in reality this is the best gelato flavor I have tasted: the sweetness of dark chocolate with a little spicy twist.
In fact I love regular dark chocolate laced with chili powder too, although to be honest the contrast of the coldness of gelato and the hotness of the spice is better.
There is a gelato shop near where we stayed that I admit is not the best Italy has to offer, but it quite good.
This gelato flavor seems only to be available in the fall months. Like many foods in Italy, everything has a season, and autumn is the season for Dark chocolate gelato with chili peppers. I ordered a cup (size large of course), and I enjoyed immensely the chocolate gelato with chili peppers.
