Gelato vs. Soft Serve Ice Cream

I have a soft spot (no pun intended) for soft, creamy desserts. Summertime weather just screams soft serve ice cream in a cone with rainbow sprinkles, and when I tried gelato for the first time, I fell in love with that too. So I want to know...

Wow! I was surprised at the results. I always thought gelato was way more decadent and fattening, which is why I am fixated on the relatively healthy, mostly-fruit sorbet at Whole Foods (pear! yay!).

I tried Gelato in Italy and didn't like it - I felt like I was swallowing sugar. Everyone else loved it. Maybe I just tried it in a bad spot? I think you mentioned once that some things that are "lowfat" make up for it by adding more sugar. That would seem the case here. . . .

Somehow it told me I was incorrect even though I chose correctly, so the poll might be skewed. If you live in Houston, Dolce and Freddo is the BEST for gelato.

I wish I could get gelato here. The last time I had it was seven years ago when I was in the south of France. Mmm...lavendar and rose flavored gelato, sounds gross, but it was awesome.

I also wonder if the flavors make any difference at all. Like a chocolate gelato vs. a vanilla soft serve.

I got it right too! But the difference still surprises me. I never would have thought that soft serve would be up that high.

Really it depends on where you buying either. For example, most soft serve in fast food joints (like McDonalds) is low fat. The strawberry sundae at McDonald's only has 6g of fat as well. And if you've had that sundae - it's more than 1/2 cup and still only has 260 calories - a great choice if you need a quick fix.
