Tamye L. - Isle of Palms, SC
Arrived on time and still completely frozen. It was very nicely packaged. I can buy this gelato at my local market but, not the seasonal flavors. It was worth the extra cost to order the King Leo Peppermint Gelato on Goldbelly. It is outstanding! I just ordered some of the other seasonal flavors and can't wait to try them.
