Can gelato predict the next President of the United States?

We think so.

Though this year’s Presidential campaign has been quite sour we’re doing our part to sweeten it up! This week we released two new election-themed gelato flavors, “Cookies and Clinton” and “Trump’s Rocky Road”, and are inviting people to vote with their tastebuds.

The two flavors were chosen soliciting ideas from the community in conjunction with working with our head gelato chef:

Cookies & Clinton

Don’t let the name fool you, this is no safe or normal Cookies & Cream flavor. A Mexican vanilla gelato filled with five different types of cookies, this flavor is full of secrets! Just like any good campaign some of these secret cookies maybe will be disclosed as we get closer to the election, so you can find out what makes this flavor dangerously good!

Trump's Rocky Road

A twist on the classic Rocky Road flavor, the biggest difference is that Trump’s version contains LOTS and LOTS of NUTS! Trump’s Rocky Road is made with a milk white chocolate gelato featuring a specialty nut blend, including roasted almonds, pecans, and peanuts. Along with a scattering of orange-tinted marshmallows, this rocky road is very much Trump's Rocky Road.

Cookies & Clinton features 5 secret cookies, and Trump's Rocky Road, has TONS of nuts!

Everyone is invited to vote!

Unlike the real Presidential election we’re allowing everyone to vote. Yes, that’s right. No age limits. No citizenship restrictions. Everyone gets their say.

There are several ways to vote:

  1. Vote online.

  2. Vote with your tastebuds. Come buy a cup of your favorite gelato flavor at one of our gelateria cafes or order online and get the flavor of your choosing delivered to your door.

By voting for a flavor before election day voters will be entered to win a free case of the election gelato flavor of their choosing!

Winners will be announced on Election Day

Polls close noon on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. Then we’ll count up the votes and release the winning gelato flavor. Then we’ll all get to see if the winning gelato flavor corresponds with the winning U.S. President!

Here's to a sweeter Presidential Election!
