Rose Petal Gelato Pints

Rose Petal Gelato Pints

Our newest gelato flavor to hit stores is Rose Petal.  I shouldn't say "New", because in fact, rose petal is our oldest flavor.  Back when I was merely dreaming of starting a goat milk soft serve shop, part of the whole reason was to serve a Rose Petal Goat Milk Soft Serve.  Rose water is often used in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking.  It is a scent that elevates one's state of mind, making eating a truly sensuous and mindful experience.  Part of what I wanted to do with Victory Garden was create an experience for people that was just that - nourishing, sensuous, and elevating.  A counterpart to the quick paced, zero calorie, load your cup as high as it can go soft serve that was popular back in the day.  Using floral essences was integral to the store's mission.  Rose petal was thus the first flavor that I created and tested on everyone who came into my kitchen.  Over the years, we have changed our rose petal flavor a few times, and I am really happy with where it is now.  It is one of our most popular flavors, and there is even a section of our customer base that we call "rose people".  While doing some investigating, we discovered that goats actually love roses, and eat rose bushes with gusto.  That was a fun detail, because if the goats like it, then it has got to be good.  

You can find our Rose Petal gelato at our shop on Carmine, Kalustyans, Foragers Market Chelsea, and Foodcellar Market in Long Island City.
