South Alamode Panini & Gelato Now Offering Gelato Donuts


Yep, you read that right. *heavy breathing*

The Southtown eatery is partnering with Maybelle's (Bakery Lorraine's sister donut shop) to bring you a treat you never needed until now: gelato donuts.

Aaron Soltero, an employee at South Alamode Panini & Gelato Co., said the donuts are sugar-coated and don't have a hole, meaning less mess when you're devouring this delicacy. The dessert comes in at $6 a pop.

"It's almost like a gelato panini," he said.

If you can handle this much sweetness, you can enjoy up to one flavor of gelato, though you might get to enjoy more if things go well for the business. Soltero said the shop is experimenting for now and is only carrying a few dozen donuts on site.
