Take a trip across the world without leaving Carlsbad Village. GelatoLove will transport your taste buds to a bustling Florentine cafe with one bite of their authentic gelato. It really is that authentic.

GelatoLove makes their homemade gelato daily with fresh ingredients. Their artisan gelato makers have dedicated their lives to producing only the purest, most captivating flavors. Gelato creation is an art that requires a delicate balance of talent and science. GelatoLove is the first company in the world that uses a revolutionary low-calorie sugar, found in fruits like kiwis, raisins and figs. The name of this revolutionary low-calorie sugar is Allulose and it’s a completely natural product. Allulose is scientifically proven to improve sugar metabolism in your body.

Paola Richard was born and raised in Rome, Italy. She is GelatoLove’s President and CEO and has worn many professional hats in her lifetime, including wildlife journalist, information officer and campaign coordinator for national and international organizations, including the UN, and now gelato store owner.

GelatoLove combines Paola’s passion for the environment, people, and the delicious food traditions of her native Italy. She has shown her dedication to the environment by becoming the first Green Certified Business in Carlsbad Village. Becoming a Certified Green Business means implementing practices and forming policies that reduce energy and water consumption, preventing pollution, diverting waste from landfills and assisting staff in creating a cleaner healthier environment for their employees.
