Growing up allergic to milk, I have never been accustomed to having a choice in ice-cream flavor when going out. If there is any sorbet I can eat, there are two flavors max to choose between. So was I surprised when I walked into Frost, Tucson's newest hip gelato shop (okay, Tucson’s only hip gelato shop) to find an entire case devoted to Italian sorbet. The thing about Italian sorbet is that the favors are so real! It’s almost like that scene from the original "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory" where they are talking about the lickable wall paper “and the snozberries taste like snozberries!” For indeed the banana taste like banana, the green apple tastes like the freshest, crispest Granny Smith apples, and the mango tastes like an honest mango. In fact, the only sorbet I wouldn’t recommend would be the wine-flavored one; it was just a tad bit too pungent. Though I have never tasted the gelato, I have heard rave reviews about it.
And aside from the killer sorbet, Frost is a great place because it’s a Tucson kind of place. You are allowed to sample as many flavors as you wish, no matter how long the line is. The service is friendly. And of course, it was started by a couple of U of A grads. So if you’re ever in Tucson, stop by this place; it’s worth the trip!
