Gelato is an Italian word for ice cream.  But it is not the same as you may think of ice cream.  It has less fat than traditional ice cream and it is served just a tad warmer than traditional ice cream so it is softer.  So the first thing you need to eat gelato is frozen yogurt cups.  They are the most convenient way to eat gelato.  They are white paper cups that come in a wide variety of sizes from a small four ounces to a large 32 ounces.  You will see these used often in ice cream shops, café, gelaterias and restaurants.

So now you need something to eat your delicious gelato right?  That is where gelato spoons come into play.  Gelato spoons are so much fun because they come in a wide variety of colors such as pink, green, blue, orange and purple.  The spoons also come in clear plastic or a multi colored pack so there is a mixture of colors for you to choose from depending on your mood.  Gelato spoons are about four inches in length.  The spoons are completely disposable.

Gelato tasting spoons are completely different from the spoons mentioned above that you use to eat with.  Used for tasting gelato, these three inch spoons are made from plastic.  These are the spoons used at places that sell gelato.  If you want to taste or sample a certain flavor of gelato before you buy it, these are the spoons that will be given to you.  These spoons are round whereas the ones for eating are square.
