Ice cream shops are fairly easy to find around New Jersey. However, it can be tough to find an authentic gelato spot. But thanks to Gio’s Gelato & Espresso Bar in Franklin Lakes, North Jersey has a new homemade gelato spot. For those who might not know, gelato is an Italian dessert staple. Though it may seem the same, it’s actually quite different from ice cream.

While both contain cream, milk, and sugar, gelato favors more milk and less cream. In addition, gelato often doesn’t use egg yolk, which is common in ice cream. As a result, gelato is creamier, silkier, smoother, and denser than ice cream. When it comes to taste, gelato has one big advantage: It is served about 10 to 15 degrees warmer than American ice cream. Since it’s not too cold, your mouth is less numb and you can taste it better.
