$5 for $10 worth of fantastic fudge and real Italian gelato at Stefano's Gelato!

The great thing about Deals That Matter is that they give 15% of the proceeds to Operation Family Fund. To learn more about them, go here.

Gelato in Riverton? You bet! Stephano's has done their homework and truly does produce gelato that will transport you to the Piazza San Marco. The lemon is tart with just the right amount of sweetness.

Do try the ACE (ah che). It's a wonderful combination of lemon, orange and carrots of all things but it works so perfectly well. It really is delicious. Stephano's makes fresh all the flavors you hope to find at a good gelateria, they also make so fun ones unique to them, like Birthday Cake. They even make a 'guiltless' chocolate that's made from non-fat milk. Still wonderful but w/far fewer calories.

Now here's another unique thing about Stephano's, fresh, homemade, imported fudge! Imported from Idaho, so it is still fresh. Why Idaho? Because Stephano wanted to serve the very best fudge he could find and he found it in Idaho with Twila's Homemade Fudge. Try it and you will thank him for the effort as it's well worth it.
