No, we're thinking bigger.
Capogiro Gelato, the Philadelphia-based dessert-makers we mentioned in December for offering a gelato-of-the-month club, has just informed us that their gelato will soon be available at Central Market. Lorenzo Merlo, who's in charge of wholesale at Capogiro, says Central Market has picked up their Cioccolato Scuro, Bacio, Pistacchio, Thai Coconut Milk (drool), and Cappuccino flavors.

"Come spring, they may add the mango sorbetto and the strawberry gelato."

We're super excited to hear that this gelato will be coming to a CM near us soon. And in addition to the delicious-sounding flavors that Central Market has already picked up, we've got a list of innovative gelato flavor ideas we'd like Capogiro to consider creating.

Lasagna gelato campaign icon idea?
Lasagna. Duh, gelato's from Italy. This is a no-brainer. Can't believe
y'all didn't think of it already.

Uptown Popcorn
Fully Loaded Baked Potato Popcorn

Fully-loaded baked potato.
Recently, we tasted fully-loaded baked
potato popcorn
and it was a home run. We don't see how this could possibly go wrong.

The only ice cream flavor this guy would like, probably.
Jack & Coke. We've all seen beer-flavored gelato, and it's great and
all, but there's one major letdown: It doesn't get you hammered. Make
some Jack & Coke gelato, and make ours a double.

AKA "Rooster Sauce"
Sriracha. That shit's good on everything. Sriracha gelato would blow
the uppity face off anything your competitors have to offer.

Chicken and waffles. It's sweet, plus savory, plus gelato! Fact:
Chicken and waffles is delicious. Chicken and waffles plus gelato can
only be more delicious. You could start a revolution.

Good luck breaking into the Texas gelato scene, Capogiro. Your current
flavors look makeout-worthy. You can thank us later (in the form of
lifetime of-the-month gelato subscriptions) for giving you all these
awesome ideas for your future gelato flavors.

Clicking on "more" of this article was 2 seconds of my life wasted that I'll never get back.

I had Capogiro's gelato in Philly this summer. I was with my mother and she wanted ice cream so I just yelped the area and they seemed to have the most/ best reviews, so we went there. It. Was. Incredible. I'm not even a huge ice cream/ gelato fan in general, but the chocolate and banana blew my mind with its deliciousness. I had no idea they had a gelato of the month club, but I'll definitely be checking that out-- it's absolutely worth the $10/ pint pricetag.
