YoLo, Cheffie's: A Tale of Two Gelatos

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 2:24 PM

'Round about the time that Memphis saw the great second coming of frozen yogurt, someone told me about the divide that separates the ice cream lover from the fro-yo lover. Passions run high!, he said.

I don't get this at all, but, truth be told, in my book, frozen treats rank as such: ice cream > Gelato > frozen yogurt.

And, so I prefer ice cream, I did manage to choke down some gelato recently ...

Above is the Payday from YoLo (about $3.50).

It indeed tasted like the candybar, with its caramel and peanuts.

I had to get this Spumoni from Cheffie's because ... Spumoni! (about $5). It's pink and green is adorable, and I probably haven't had this since I was 8-years-old.

I couldn't really remember what Spumoni was, but one taste brought it back: pistachio, chocolate gelato dotted with dried cherries.
