26-year-old Ryan German owns Caffé Gelato on Main Street in Newark.
German: “It was junior year in college when I decided I really wanted to make ice cream for a living. I thought making ice cream would be one of the best jobs in the world.”
And the University of Delaware grad wound up making one of the best ice creams in the country. Caffe’ Gelato is listed among ice cream hot spots in the book “Everybody Loves Ice Cream: The Whole Scoop on America’s Favorite Treat.”
German: “I went to Italy to learn how to make Italian gelato, homemade Italian gelato. Gelato is Italian ice cream.”
How is it different than regular ice cream?
German: “It melts on your tongue faster. You get a complete flavor burst immediately.”
And he makes all kinds of yummy flavors.
German: “White chocolate macadamia nut, chocolate hazelnut, which is ‘bacio.’ ‘Bacio’ means ‘kiss’ in Italian, so that’s one of the most popular flavors. We have … Italian chocolate chip. Some people know it as ‘Romeo and Juliette.”
German is inviting everyone to get a little taste of Italy. Sunday is National Ice Cream Day.
