A Sweet Treat That’s a “Sexual Experience”

Cross-posted from the blog Every Food Fits.

People can’t get enough of the pineapple/basil sorbet? I thought that Cristian Velasco, co-owner of Boccato Gelato in Clarendon, was pulling my leg.  “It’s insanely good! It explodes with a pineapple flavor.”

Sitting on a bench outside of 2719 Wilson Blvd., traffic flying by, Velasco animatedly rattled off other flavor combinations. “Elvis Pelvis gelato is made with peanut butter and bananas.

For the health benefits associated with antioxidants, Velasco is using more fruits like pomegranate and will soon introduce acai berry.
