December 11, 2013 // Franchising.com // DALLAS, Texas – If Old Saint Nick is a little late getting to your stocking this year, he has a great excuse: Paciugo Gelato Caffè® is tempting him with a wintery candy land featuring festive, seasonal beverages.
Paciugo®, best known for its authentic Italian gelato, is introducing for a limited time (through January 5) holiday-inspired treasures impossible to find anywhere else: Peppermint Chocolate Chip Gelato, Candy Cane Hot Chocolate and a Peppermint Chocolate Chip Gelatte®.
The secret to Paciugo’s Gelatte and their Hot Chocolate is in their gelato, which is handcrafted using wholesome ingredients of the highest quality from around the world. Both warm beverages are steamed with the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Gelato to create their out- of- this-world flavor. The gelato-infused drinks give latte and hot chocolate lovers more flavorful choices, as they offer distinctly unique improvements to the traditional favorites with a secret weapon only Paciugo can create.
"The best flavors in the world are always in season at Paciugo," said Diego Comparin, Paciugo, VP of Research and Development. "We’ve created seasonal masterpieces which are visually appealing and extremely craveable. And, of course, you’ll only find them at Paciugo."
The Candy Cane Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Chocolate Chip Gelatte start at $2.99 for 12 oz. and $3.99 for $16 oz. Price and participation may vary.
Paciugo gelato is made with whole milk versus cream, resulting in a flavorful frozen treasure with up to 70% less fat and fewer calories than ice cream. Paciugo also offers water-based, fat-free sorbets, soy-based gelato and No Sugar Added versions of gelato, which are smoother in texture than ice cream and are prepared in small batches for optimum taste.
Paciugo Gelato Caffè was founded in 2000 when Ugo, Cristiana and Vincent Ginatta, inspired by their passion of bringing Italian gelato to America, moved to Dallas, Texas and opened their first gelateria. Since then, the company has grown to 44 locations in 16 states. Paciugo offers more than 30 flavors daily of gelato that are handcrafted every morning at each neighborhood location. To complement their unique gelato, Paciugo offers gelato-inspired shakes, smoothies, espresso-based drinks, iced coffees, Gelattes® and artisanal favorites like affogato, hot chocolates, Arabica coffee and Italian roast coffee.
