Cool Off This Summer

Cool Off This Summer With a Frozen Treat From Black Dog Gelato

July 22, 2020

Summertime means ice cream, but you may never go back to the plain old frozen stuff after you taste the treats at Black Dog Gelato. This artisanal producer makes some of the smoothest, richest gelato you’ll ever taste, along with the high-end flavor combinations that put chocolate and vanilla to shame. The difference with Black Dog Gelato is its high fat content and low amount of air whipped into the cream. The result is less cold and more rich flavor. The shop is also known for its inventive flavors, whether it’s the signature Oreo mint and vanilla sea salt caramel or seasonal selections like raspberry rose petal and chocolate coffee toffee. Black Dog Gelato also has dairy- and gluten-free sorbets, and they didn’t go the boring route with those combinations either (try the sunflower butter and caramel!). 

There are three Black Dog Creamery location in Chicagoland, including spots in Ukrainian Village, West Loop, and Logan Square. You can also track the big pink truck on Instagram for on-the-go cravings.
