Day 58 - Paciugo

Today wasn't too scary, but I set habit and fear of change aside and tried something new at a local gelato cafe called Paciugo. Pronounced, PA-CHOO-GO, meaning "messy concoction", the cafe offers pretty amazing gelato and tons of flavors. Sadly, I've been stuck on the Wedding Cake flavor and haven't allowed my taste buds to branch out. After talking to another patron in line I suggested she try the Wedding Cake, which she did, along with other free tasting samples of Extreme Chocolate and Salted Caramel.

Being a prime example of "monkey see, monkey do", I followed suit and asked for the same samples the lady ahead of me tried. As she purchased a festa pack of Wedding Cake flavored gelato I smiled that she took my advice and liked my recommendation. As I savored my free samples, I realized I couldn't decide which one flavor to get. Well, thank goodness Paciugo offers a piccolo size (small) cup that allows up to three flavors of gelato. So yep, you guessed it, I ordered, "A piccolo please with three flavors, Extreme Chocolate, Wedding Cake and Salted Caramel". It was awesome - thank goodness for change!


  1. Oh my god, that sounds so delicious. And I'm not a foodie. I don't get excited about food. THIS MADE ME WANT WANT WANT.
