It’s December and Gelateria Uli is feeling festive! To make the holiday season even brighter, they’ve just introduced six new flavors to the case at their West Third Street store. Come by and try them all! Here’s what Uli herself has to say about the new flavors:

Latke & Apples Gelato: To celebrate Hanukkah this year, we’re excited to debut this brand new flavor! Reminiscent of your favorite latkes, sour cream, and apple sauce, this gelato is one-of-a-kind and sure to wow everyone in the family.

Halva Gelato: We’ve also brought back this annual favorite just in time for Hanukkah! Sweet, layered, and colored a festive shade of blue, this gelato is made from the most delicious sesame paste reminiscent of this favorite treat all over Eastern Europe and Middle East.

White Chocolate Peppermint Gelato: A holiday favorite, we promise you’ve never had White Chocolate Peppermint ice cream this good. Made from the most decadent white chocolate you’ve ever had, this flavor tastes like Christmas!

Mulled Apple Sorbet: Vegan-made with Granny Smith apples and our very own mixture of spices, this sorbet makes you feel cozy inside. It pairs beautifully with chocolate sorbet (if you’re vegan) or sea salt caramel (if you’re not). Perfect for sitting by the fireplace!

Zabaglione: What is Zabaglione you ask? Why, it’s Italian eggnog, of course, and just as rich and delicious as it sounds. Made with milk, cream, sugar, egg yolks, Marsala wine, and all-natural stabilizers, you won’t want to miss out on this flavor during the holiday season.

Hazelnut: Sure, Nutella’s great, but who needs it when you have fresh Hazelnut gelato? Creamy, nutty, and smooth, this gelato makes a heavenly affogato when doused with a shot of espresso. Perfect for keeping you warm as the temperature drops!
