Hedera was another perfect gelato stop.
Hopefully you are not surprised to know gelato in Italy is a serious thing, right? 😜
The store is super cute, with a vintage look that invites you in straight away.
In addition to the great variety of gelato flavours, you can also find granitas there (just in case you want something different)!
As we were quite full after our delicious lunch at Da Romolo, this time we decided to share a small cup.
Just to refresh ourselves a bit before exploring more of Rome in the afternoon!
Our choice was: Chuo (70% dark chocolate) and Hedera Top (their secret flavour).
It’s hard to find exact words to describe both flavours, but let me give it a try:
The dark chocolate one was super rich and extremely chocolatey, as a good quality chocolate gelato should be.
It may be too bitter in case you are not a dark chocolate fan, otherwise go for it, you will love!
For the top secret flavour … OMG! What was that? I can’t describe but I believe there is a bit of pistachio and spices in it. I asked the owner what was in that flavour and he said it is “top secret” and he couldn’t reveal. 😜
The only thing he could tell me was if there was any nuts, in case I was allergic, and indeed there was, so by the flavour I suppose it was pistachio.
In case you are around the Vatican this is a perfect place to have a stop and enjoy a delicious Italian gelato.
I loved their gelato and service was super friendly.
In case you manage to get out of them what the Top Secret flavour is made of, please tell me!
This was one of my favourite flavours in Rome, and I’m dying to know more about it. 😅
