Gelatissimo Launches New 95% Sugar Free Flavours
Wednesday 9 October
You heard us. 95% sugar free with all the taste, chunks and decadence of the real deal. Just in time for the warmer weather, Gelatissimo has launched two new guilt-free flavours that satisfy both the sweet tooth and the waistband. 95% Sugar Free Caramel Latte and Peppermint Crunch were unveiled in stores on Friday containing no artificial sweeteners and less than 160 calories per scoop.
Still with the same silky texture and sweetness as you’d find with traditional gelato recipes, Gelatissimo’s product innovation team have done extensive testing and research to replace 95% of the sugar with a blend of natural and nutritive sweeteners including stevia while still maintaining the exceptional taste and quality of other Gelatissimo flavours.
Now for the fun part - the flavours. 95% Sugar Free Caramel Latte contains 153 calories per scoop and is a rich and creamy gelato made using a blend of finely ground coffee beans balanced with the distinct flavours of creamy butter and sweet caramel. Sugar free shortbread (the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee, or in this case, a cup of gelato) is then crumbled and folded throughout, all topped off with crispy pieces of sugar free honeycomb brittle. The only thing missing is the foam.
95% Sugar Free Peppermint Crunch is exactly as it sounds - minty and crunchy. With each scoop containing just 159 calories, this creamy gelato is infused with a natural, pure peppermint oil to give it a sweet mint flavour with a refreshing aftertaste. The snow-white gelato is then sprinkled with naturally green sugar free peppermint chips and chunks of sugar free chocolate. Made with cocoa sourced from the Ivory Coast in West Africa, the chocolate has been tempered to ensure it has that satisfying ‘snap’ with each bite.
“Life tastes better with gelato so it’s important to us to make sure there are options for absolutely everyone,” says CEO Filipe Barbosa. “We create vegan flavours, non-dairy flavours and gluten friendly flavours so these low sugar options mean that there’s also something for those who are watching their sugar intake or just looking for a good excuse to eat more gelato. They’re still rich in flavour and just as creamy, so they certainly won’t feel like you’re missing out.”
But wait, there’s more. A third mystery flavour will be launching on Friday 1 November and may be the most indulgent of them all - think cocoa, peanut butter, biscuit crumb and more, all with just 150 calories.
These decadent new flavours join the already existing classic low sugar range including the popular 96% Sugar Free Chocolate. These flavours will be available across all 47 Australian stores for a limited time only.
