Review: Roba Dolce Gelato and Sorbetto


If you are tired of the boring plain bowl of ice cream, I have a treat to introduce to you that will tickle your taste buds! I was recently asked to do a review on Roba Dolce Gelato and Sorbetto. They’ve used real family recipes that had been used for generations to create authentic Italian gelato and Sorbetto. They have a variety of flavors from Dark Chocolate Chunk Gelato to Blood Orange Sorbetto. I would have to say that the Della Coconut has to be my favorite. The flavors and textures are smooth and to have the real coconut bits is a pleasant treat! Click here to check out a little bit about the company.

Gelato Flavors:
  • Raspberry Almond Fudge – red raspberries, dark chocolate chunks, crunchy almonds
  • Della Coconut – bits of shredded coconut
  • Dark Chocolate Chunk – flavorful cocoa from the Ivory Coast of Africa
  • Wild Berry – blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
  • Summer Pistachio – crunchy pistachios
And their Sorbetto -
  • Di Limone
  • Mango Dream
  • Raspberry Berry
  • Blood Orange


Roba Dolce, which means “sweet stuff,” uses family recipes that have been passed down for generations to create real Italian taste.  Following the old world artisanal approach of an authentic Florentine gelato master and using imported Italian equipment, this gourmet dessert offers a bold, intense flavor and is the perfect anecdote for all of your holiday recipes.
Available in a variety of flavors at select locations nationwide.

With the flavors Roba Dolce have to offer our divine; it gives you many options to choose from and to work with in recipes. At a dinner party I had over the weekend, I served peanut butter cookies with the Della Coconut in the middle as a sandwich. My family can't get enough of it. They have gone through most of it already. I had to swat them away from the coconut just so I can have enough to make the cookies. I do want to mention that they don't sell it in my city, so if they don’t sale it in a store near you Click here to purchase and have it shipped. I will to say that Roba Dolce Gelato has been one of the best reviews I have done so far! This treat was loved by all! If you are having a holiday get together this Halloween Beloware a couple of recipes I think you will enjoy!  



Packaging - 5/5: Absolutely loved the packaging. The ice cream was shipped in a white reusable Styrofoam
cooler and packed on Dry ice. I was worried that the ice cream would be a little melted, but to my surprise it arrived to me rock hard and no signs of melting! The individual package on the Gelato and the Sorbetto is easy to open, and seals back tight to prevent any freezer burn.

Quality - 5/5: The quality of the Gelato is amazing. It is very rich and creamy. The flavors are melts in your mouth good. There is nothing confusing to draw you away from the actual flavor (no gimmicks). If it says coconut, you get real coconut and nothing less.
Price- 4/5: This product is a fair price, if its not in your area you are able to purchase it online at icecreamsource.com. The only draw back to that is the shipping is a little bit pricey.
Overall - 4/5: I think overall this is a real good product. It’s a nice treat that I don’t mind feeding to my whole family.

Recommend - YES! I’d definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a delicious refreshing treat!
