Given the extreme heat NYC has been having these last few weeks and that greeted me as I got off the plane from very lovely cool Berlin and Brussels I thought some Gelato porn was in order. This display was in the Karstadt department store in Berlin. Karstadt is kind of like Macy’s only unlike Macy’s each one has a big grocery store (and wine/beer/liquor store) in the basement.
What struck me about this particular display was the over the top presentation – of particular note is the “espresso” cup sitting in the “cappuccino” gelato…if you are going to put a coffee cup in your Cappuccino gelato shouldn’t it be a Cappuccino cup? For some reason this struck me as funny.
So is it just me or is this like the most Disney presentation of Gelato you have ever seen?And don’t get me started with the plastic clown face in the Yogurt gelato – is there some connection between clowns and frozen yogurt that I don’t know about?
