Good news, East End ice cream lovers!

Starting next Tuesday, July 1, Chocolates by Kelly’s Church Hill location will be serving Gelati Celesti ice cream. You read right: Church Hill’s premiere chocolatier will be offering some of Henrico County’s favorite ice cream next week. Kelly will also be extending her shop hours to 9:00 PM.

Chocolates by Kelly will be offering several flavors, including Almond Amaretto, Mint Chip, Chocolate Decadence, Vanilla, Blanchard’s Coffee Dark as Dark, Oreo, as well as others.

In a message to East End Daily, Kelly expressed her excitement about offering the much-loved ice cream to the Church Hill community:

Talk about heavenly! Gelati Celesti is truly the best ice cream I’ve ever had. The vanilla is far from ordinary, as you can smell the real Madagascar vanilla before it even touches your lips. The Chocolate Decadence has to be more chocolatey than seems physically possible (you KNOW I like that), and I simply can’t wait to have the Blanchard’s Coffee Dark as Dark!

If you haven’t been lucky enough to hear about Gelati Celesti or to sample any of their delicious flavors, here’s a bit about what they do from their own website:

Gelati Celesti uses the best ingredients from all over the world: cocoa from France, pecans from Georgia, and cream from the best dairy farms in mid-Atlantic region. Our Italian equipment minimizes the air whipped into our product, making it uniquely flavorful, thick and creamy, and flat out special. We are honored and humbled to have been named Best Ice Cream by area publications 12 times.

Chocolates by Kelly is located at 600 North 29th Street, open 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM starting Tuesday.
