Ciao Bella is excited to announce that The Grove is now serving us at JFK airport in British Airways Terminal 7!
JuicyJ and I were on-hand during the grand opening to pass out samples of our gelato and sorbet. We always love being able to share our yummy frozen treats with people that haven’t tried us and those that are already fans. We met one girl who loves Ciao Bella so much that she served us at her wedding! With 24 flavors to choose from it was hard to decide which ones to sample so we scooped them all. Among the favorites were Valrhona chocolate gelato, cookie dough gelato, key lime graham gelato, mango sorbet, raspberry sorbet and chocolate sorbet.
We were also there to speak to The Grove employees about Ciao Bella – our story, what is gelato/sorbet, etc. This is one of my favorite parts of new store openings. I always love being able to talk about Ciao Bella’s gelato and sorbet and seeing the excitement on the faces of the employees. Most people think that it is just like ice cream. True, gelato is ice cream, but Ciao Bella is unlike any other ice cream – creamy, dense, and oh so flavorful. Now you may think I am biased, but I was first a Ciao Bella fan (mint chocolate chip was my vice) and was lucky enough to become an employee who gets to enjoy free pint Fridays.
As part of training we always recommend that all employees try every flavor (unless they have a food allergy) that way he/she can speak to customers about each flavor with as much passion as the Bella Girls. One flavor that usually causes mouths to drop and eyes to bulge in amazement is mango sorbet. This time was no different. In fact, one of the employees noted that it was better than the mangoes from the farm from her native country, India. JuicyJ and I were thrilled to hear this! It’s no secret in Ciao Bella and among mango sorbet fans that this particular flavor is truly like eating a real mango, but to hear it directly from someone who was born and raised in the same country where we get our mango puree is so validating.
So if you are departing/arriving from JFK airport British Airways – Terminal 7 be sure to grab a scoop (or two or three) of Ciao Bella at The Grove.
