Mio Gelati Grand Launch at the Vertis North - my first Gelato Experience

When Italian-inspired ice creams became a big hit in the country, I was not among those who got hooked. I was never a fan of gelato. Inside my mind, they also taste like the usual ice creams in the market today but they are too pricey to give me cavities.

Until one day, I received an invite to join the launch of an ice cream store at the Vertis North - Mio Gelati. I am from the south, that was too far and I have to travel for about 2 to 3 hrs due to traffic to reach the place. But then I decided to accept it because I guess that was the time to start learning more about gelati.


The store was located in a corner of the mall, it was small but it looks pretty in pink, maybe because the owner, named Celina Nolasco, is a beautiful young lady. Knowing that the brains of this ice cream bar and dessert store is a Filipina, it made me be more excited as I advocate helping local businesses and SME's.

It was a fun afternoon of trivia, games, prizes, and surprises together with the bloggers and guests. There was a buffet table with enough of good food for everyone and there was this centerpiece along the aisle full of nuts, fruits, cheeses, crackers and other unique pica pica that really tastes good.


I was surprised to see that the store is offering 24 flavors of great-tasting gelati. Some flavors are the usual flavors we have always loved such as the salted caramel, coffee crumble and other chocolate-flavored ice creams. There were also uniquely flavored ones such as the chili and the alcoholic ice creams. Aside from ice creams, they also have hot and cold beverages such as Cafe' Americano, Cafe Latte and Cappuccino. They also have new creations of milkshakes such as Fruitopia and Unicornbow and their one-of-a-kind Smoresicles.



 1. Fruitopia

- Cereal based milkshake goodness topped with fruit loops for an out of this world breakfast-inspired drink.

2. Salted Caramallows
- Biscoff cookies and torched marshmallows give this salted caramel shake a unique twist. All brown. All good.

3. Hazelatto

- Dig into this goldmine of a hazelnut drink with gold sprinkles and a huge Ferrero chocolate on top! A real gem awaits.

4. Unicornbow
- Of rainbows and unicorns. A dash of color here and there. And a whole lot of happy sprinkles make this bubblegum x strawberry drink a favorite of many!

5. Fudgelatto
- Dark and delicious. A double dose of real premium chocolatey goodness guaranteed to satisfy one's cravings.


6.  Smoresicles
-Yummy and quite handy! Dark chocolate gelato based covered generously with torched marshmallows for that sumptuous quick fix on stick.


Mio Gelati is now on the 6th year and going stronger. The venture which started as a food truck has branches in Greenhills and in Vertis North. They are expanding soon in the south so watch out for updates via https://www.facebook.com/miogelati/.
