    Gelato shops

    Assuming ones were to ride around 60ish miles through OCish in search of good gelato, which shops would you recommend?

    There is one off of Michelson and Jamboree next to CPK. It's not bad.

    I can't recall the name, but there is one in the shopping center on Avocado and PCH in Newport Beach.

    If you're looking for the serious yum-yum, I highly recommend Frati Gelato in downtown Fullerton. Great variety that changes daily, made on-site and Dr. Gelato is one kick ass gelato maker.

    I believe the Velocity bike club folks start their rides right behind Frati Gelato from the parking lot of Heroe's.

    Oh yeah, and they have Mexican Coca-Cola on site in 1/2 litre glass bottles for $2 a pop. Mmmm... Coca-Cola made with sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.

    Yeah, Rite Aid has low cost ice cream. If you just want a quick ice cream and really don't care about fancy creamy stuff, this is the low cost favorite.
