Maine Wild Blueberry Returns to The Gelato Fiasco

Maine Wild Blueberry Sorbetto returns to The Gelato Fiasco today. We’re making the first batches of the season this morning at The Gelato Fiasco Flagship Store, and it should be available by lunchtime.

This sorbetto is incredibly fresh:

  • It is made from 100 pounds of blueberries delivered yesterday by Blueberry Lynn, the founder of Blue Sky Produce. She represents families who own blueberry fields and helps to make sure that we can get all the field-fresh blueberries that we need.
  • This particular batch of blueberries was picked by Danner and Dewey Curtis, who own the 25-acre Dan-a-Dew Wild Blueberry Farm in Blue Hill. When harvest season rolls around, their family, friends, and neighbors pitch in to help get their pesticide-free berries from bushes to boxes.
  • We’ll continue to receive 200-pound deliveries of blueberries each Tuesday and Friday for the rest of the season. These batches will include berries from family blueberry fields in Jonesport, Addision, Steuben, Waltham, and Calais.
  • This flavor is very popular, so it can sell out quickly. (Fair warning!) Beginning on Tuesday, we’ll also start delivering Maine Wild Blueberry Sorbetto to virtually all independent grocery stores, restaurants, and scoop shops found on our list of partner locations. If you don’t see it, ask your store manager for it!
  • When blueberry season in Maine ends and we run out of fresh blueberries, the flavor will go into hibernation until the 2012 blueberry season begins.

We’re open until 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. Hope to see you soon!
