Italian dessert manufacturer Divino has introduced a new range of its gelato-filled fruit desserts to the US market.
The Indulgenza line is available in five flavours – Amalfi lemon, Apulian peach, black diamond plum, Ciaculli tangerine and Roman kiwi. Its launch follows the success of last year’s introduction of real fruit sorbet and gelato, packaged in the skin of the fruit from which the pulp has been scooped. It was unveiled at this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show.
All the fruit used in its desserts are sourced freshly from within a few hundred miles of the company’s factory on Italy’s Amalfi coast. The recently non-GMO verified dessert, which retails at $3.99, is naturally fat- and gluten-free.
The company claimed that the dessert was conceived by Angelo de Angelis in the 1920s for his fiancée, when he observed the diamond-like sparkle of a freshly sliced Sorrento lemon while making gelato. Its name was apparently inspired by a remark from then-first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who remarked that Angelo’s surname, which means ‘of the angels’, was “divine”.
