Flavor of the Month: Sicilian Cannoli

  The flavor for the month of March at Grom is Sicilian Cannoli.

So like a cannoli (which means "little tubes" in Italian) the gelato starts with a sweet ricotta base with candied fruits and chocolate chips added. Then crumbled pieces of the fried connolo pastry are incorporated, which become soft in the gelato mix.
It was a fun and delightful new flavor to experience on it's own, but it didn't really taste like cannoli. I say try it if you like these flavors together but don't expect to be transported back to your favorite Sicilian pastery shop.

The gelato looks delicious! I think I'll have to go on a search for some tomorrow! Maybe for breakfast.
