No worries, there are blueberries!

Did you know that...

- We are currently at the peak of blueberry harvest season.

- These little berries are loaded with antioxidants that are believed to help prevent detrimental health conditions such as cancer and heart disease.

- They can be used to make natural blue dye for clothes and other textiles.

- For a limited time you can enjoy blueberry gelato and sorbetto at your local Capogiro!

Make sure you get it while it's still in season and be sure to check in for other seasonal flavor announcements!

Wedding Season!!

If you have lots of friends and family in their twenty-somethings, then you've probably gotten a few wedding invites so far this summer. Sometimes choosing a wedding gift can be difficult if the couple doesn't have a very extensive registry. What you can do is order our gelato online at capogirogelato.com and get 6 pints mailed to the newlyweds at their place of residence! You may also pick up some pints at any of our four locations across Philadelphia to bring to the rehearsal dinner or reception. Try marrying gelato with some wedding cake this season! 

We also have beautiful gelato cakes made to order from our 20th Street location.  Try to contact them at least a week in advance so they can be sure to have your chosen flavor ingredients on hand. 

Feel free to email us at info@capogirogelato.com for more information on 6 pint online orders, catering orders, and our beautiful gelato cakes!

Warning! Philadelphia Heat Approaching!

We're been very lucky so far with some mild 70-80 degree days. Unfortunately summer is now upon us and with July comes some uncomfortable heat and humidity
. Here's some advice for keeping cool this season:

1. Dress smart! Don't do yourself the injustice of overdressing. Find the middle ground where you don't have to sacrifice comfort for style. Go to a second hand store and find some nice threads that look great and feel great in humid Philadelphia weather.

2. Hydrate! You lose a lot more water when it's hot out so you need to compensate by drinking more water. Feelin hot? Grab a drink! And not an alcoholic one. Those will further dehydrate you.

3. AC! But not too much air conditioning. Even the lightest heat wave will feel like a scorcher if you don't let your body adjust to the season. I reserve my AC consumption for sleep time.
4. Enjoy some cold treats to beat the heat! Stop by one of our four locations to enjoy some delicious cold gelato. You won't regret it!

Make sure that you know your body's limit in the hot city sun. Overexposure and overexertion can lead to serious health problems. Enjoy the beautiful weather but always make sure that safety is your first priority.
