This sibling to ice cream is made in traditional Italian style, with milk, cream, sugars and various flavorings. You'll find gelato shops all throughout the streets of Italy, and luckily, the sweet treat found its way across the Atlantic for us to enjoy as well!

Frozen Yogurt

Ah, frozen yogurt. Speaking of fan bases, froyo has made big gains in popularity over the past few years. This treat is typically more tart than ice cream and soft serve, and can be lower in fat, making it a go-to option for those watching their waistlines.

Popsicles and Bars

Popsicles are the ultimate grab-and-go treat. That's probably why most ice cream trucks carry a large variety of them. It's a portable sweet on a stick that kids and adults alike can enjoy!

Shaved Ice and Slushies

You're probably most familiar with this treat in the form of snow cones or slushies, but another popular version of shaved ice is granita. This semi-frozen dessert has origins in Italy and consists of flavored water or juice being frozen and broken up into small slivers.
