Frozen Signature Products

DLM Gelatos and Sorbettos

Our private label gelatos and sorbettos are made in small batches by Matt Madison from Cincinnati. Matt uses Italian equipment, and flavor bases that he buys from an Italian company (out of Bologna, no less). He makes every batch with love and passion and even developed a variety using our most famous product: our Killer Brownie®! Gelato is similar to ice cream, but has only about half the fat of the super-premium ice creams. So why does gelato taste so good? Air is the secret, or rather the lack of it. Gelato has much less air than ice cream, giving you that rich mouthfeel and depth of flavor. Gelato also is traditionally made with flavors you don’t usually see in ice cream — hazelnut, to name just one. Matt is making sorbetto for us as well. DLM Sorbetto contains simple, clean ingredients, with interesting twists of flavor, including fresh citrus and herbs.
