deliziefollie

deliziefollie (2) Man, Saturday was hot and humid! perfect weather for gelato.

Satoshi and I checked out the newly opened Deliziefollie in NU Chayamachi Plus before his German class.

Apparently, this is a French company and the name supposedly means "crazy delights". They have 2 shops in Paris and 10 in Japan...

They have 4 serving styles: medio (3 flavors), grande (4 flavors) in cups. And the same on cones.

We both chose the medio in a cup...550 yen (about US$5.50) each.

Satoshi chose Cubano (rum & dark chocolate), Nocciola (made from Piedmont hazelnuts) and Arancia Rossa (blood orange).

deliziefollie (3) I chose Fruitti Rossi (raspberry, cassis & strawberry), Pistacchio di Bronte (made from Bronte pistachios) and Stracciatella (milk gelato with chocolate chips)....650 yen (about US$6.50)

Mine was a 100 yen more because pistachio is a premium flavor...ahem!

deliziefollie Oh My! if you are going to eat gelato make sure you eat gelato here.

All the flavors are spot on. The fruit ones were really refreshing and the cream type ones were creamy and flavorful, not artificial tasting.

Though the one with rum was a bit overpowering with the alcohol and Satoshi was warned when he ordered.

Definitely going back here.

So funny...2 shops in Paris and 10 in Japan...and they weren't out of any flavor. Makes me go grrrr that our fave brewpub/pizza joint was already out of Hitachino Nest beer as a new list item (have you tried it?), because to find japanese anything here is like gold to me. I so wanted to try the IPA!

K and S said...

definitely J-A!

I guess it is like seeing a lot of frozen yogurt places in the States, Christy.

Thanks Nami :)

No, I haven't tried that beer Rowena, but am waiting to see it in stores around my area because shipping is so high, hope you get to try the IPA :)

Take care everyone.

Considering how popular this blog is, you really should consider asking these businesses if they will give you a discount or freebie in return for a review.

Oh, and could you put the comments into the page instead of a popup? Please?

K and S said...
