Follow Me Foodie’s Christmas Gelato NOW AVAILABLE! (Dec. 8 – Jan. 8 )
Dear Follow Me Foodie readers, friends, followers, tweeters, voters, sponsors and loyal supporters,
Thank you so much for your incredible support in making Follow Me Foodie’s Christmas Flavours Gelato event a sweet success! I am seriously overwhelmed with the turnout and people that bared the pouring rain just to attend this special event. People even showed up at the door! You have no idea what it means to me. Uh oh… I feel my Oscar tears coming on…
After hosting Vancouver’s 1st Cupcake Challenge and now this, I hope to prove to you foodies and Follow Me Foodie supporters that I am dedicated to bringing you the best. If you missed out on the event, here’s a quick recap of what happened.
My Follow Me Foodie Christmas flavours will be available only at Bella Gelateria until January 8… (or as long as there’s demand :)) Go get your free samples! As always feedback is always appreciated and valued.

Follow Me Foodie’s Maple Cinnamon Creme Brulee
Easily one of the favourites of the night.
Ultra creamy, rich and velvety smooth. The perfect balance of maple and cinnamon.
Follow Me Foodie’s Pistachio & Cranberry Pound Cake
Pistachio base and loaded with dried cranberries and actual pieces of moist pound cake throughout.
Some people really loved this and others would have liked more pistachio.
Follow Me Foodie’s Honey Graham Cracker
Made with all natural honey and actual pieces of graham cracker. This was one of my favourites, but food is so personal it just depends.
The graham cracker pieces just soften up in the gelato and it was almost like dipping cookies into milk.
Follow Me Foodie’s Caramelized Marshmallow
Made with real pieces of marshmallow. To be honest, it was a bit mild for me, and I have to start off with this one otherwise the marshmallow flavour was a bit faint.
@MightyVanilla suggested caramelizing the marshmallow first, which is a recipe I agree with! *Ahem* Hi James! Please? Thank you!! 🙂
Introducing the stars of the show! The one on the left is a GELATO S’MORE! What?! I know!! First EVER!
Follow Me Foodie Christmas Flavours are available until hopefully end of January 2011! DEMAND IT… or just go try it 🙂

A big thank you to James and the Bellagelateria staff, Reach Magazine, and of course Nature’s Path for sponsoring the event with generous foodie bags!
I have to agree, the Maple Cinnamon Creme Brulee was definitely my favourite of the night.
It was so great. I can’t believe the size of the freebies for this event. Great conversations, young crowd (except for James and I) and just a whole lot of fun.
Thanks for putting up this event, very tasty. Looking forward to another one soon. I sent invites to all of my friends unfortunately they couldn’t make it. Once I show them my Nature’s Organic stuff I’m sure they’ll regret missing out.
Woohooo!!! Looks like a smashing success, as expected! Wish I could’ve flown over to be there. I want to try the s’mores flavour!
@Cameron W – Great! I hope it won’t be your last time indulging in it 😉
@Ben – LOL RIIIIGHT!!! You’re SO old Ben! =p I’m so glad you had fun! Yup those bags are huge! I have to deliver as a foodie to my foodies 🙂
@May – Lol! I’m so happy you had a great time! Yes! Make them jealous! I promise to deliver the goods… I just appreciate all the support for this blog 🙂
@Mijon – I wish you were here too!!! 🙁
Thanks for the event. It was great to see you in person. And Ben is right, I didn’t expect the goodie bag to be that huge! I was happy to know that each of the granola bars is different. The gelatos were really nice too. I just wished that some of the other flavors were as unique as the Christmas flavors.
I’ll wait for your next event. Lol.. =D
@Jane – thank YOU for your awesome support!! You guys all inspire me to do what I do! I’m so pleased you had a great time and that the gelato was worth your while! I cannot wait to bring you guys more stuff! xo
Thanks for organizing the event! The Christmas card inside the big bag of goodies was a nice touch!
@David – Thanks David!! Sorry if the writing was a bit messy! I wanted to hand write each one for a personal touch. I’m really happy you noticed! Thank you for reading and overall support!
