There are a lot of gelato shops in Venice and some with wild colors and flavors so it was a treat to find La Mela Verde or the Green Apple where they make their own gelato in house with fresh, real and Italian ingredients. They even have a video running on a loop in the store showing how the gelato is made and the ingredients they use. It is a nice option to the garish colors and poor textures found in so many other shops. Flavors vary with what is available each day. They are only open part of the year. It’s a really tiny shop but you can get 1-5 scoops in cones or cups as well as Nutella dressed. They have recieved a lot of press due to their quality and I thought Frankie should give them a nod for their creamy texture and flavor choices. The flavors are on the mild side but the smoothness makes up for that. Also knowing that no artificial ingredients are used to enhance the flavors gives you a good feeling, as well as being owner driven. Check it out!
