We’re very fortunate that more Italian-style gelato companies are opening in the US.  The latest,  Muse Gelato, based in Orlando, FL,  was inspired originally in 2005 by husband and wife team Brandon and Andi Moss.  A healthier alternative to regular ice creams and other frozen creamy desserts,  gelato contains  about 30% less fat than regular ice cream.  Yet, it is creamier and more intensely flavorful  than its icy counterpart.

The proof was in the incredibly delicate and intense pistachio gelato I had, just before trying the hazelnut, which once I did, propelled me back on the streets of Verona, Italy, where, after visiting Juliet’s House I had the most unforgettable hazelnut gelato of my life. That is, until I tasted Muse’s.

The  gelato-loving couple has perfected more than 150 flavorful recipes and is constantly innovating.  In January, expect Toasted Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Gelato (a creamy mixture of homemade toasted marshmallows, rich chocolate gelato, and chocolate sauce); Almond Toffee Crunch Gelato (almond gelato with tiny buttery toffee pieces woven throughout), and Tangerine Sorbet (made with Noble Tangerine Juice freshly sourced from Winter Haven, Florida).

For romantic February,  they’ve come up with Italian Kiss “Bacio” Gelato, a sumptuous flavor made with pieces of hazelnut and mixed with chocolate gelato. In honor of New Orleans and Mardi Gras:  King Cake Gelato.– With a perfect combination of cinnamon, vanilla, cream cheese, and colorful frosting (think purple, green and gold) woven throughout , this flavor is bound to make you feel like you’re right on Bourbon Street.

March will find Chantilly White Rose Gelato, Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Gelato, and Orange Blossom Tea Sorbet .

After years of developing gelatos with intense flavors, chefs from all over the city were requesting Muse Gelato in their restaurants. Soon after, the little company produced product for a local Wholefoods Market and became only a manufacture of wholesale products. Today,  the gelato cases in Whole Foods Markets nationwide carry exquisite ingredients like real raspberries, green and jasmine tea blends, and more.

But don't feel limited by this list (even though there are hundreds of flavors here!). Muse Events & Catering can create custom flavors to suit your event. For additional information and contact, log on to museeventplanning.com

:D I am a Caterer and Baker in the Orlando FL Area and use Muse Gelato quite often in fact they have made some special flavors for events I had catered, But as experience has shown me you've got to do the basics well before trying to be creative and I must say The Vanilla Bean, Dark Chocolate Buzz and Strawberry Fields Flavors are awesome as are all the sorbets and flavors I have used in the past.. In fact I have one client that is so in love with their Cappuccino Gelato that they order it from me in 2 gallon containers... Great jobs Andi and Brandon
