Savoury food gets a lot of fanfare, but most of us crave something sweet from time to time. When you want a nice dessert, be it something to take home or a treat to eat while you’re out, Calgary has a lot of options for sweet tooths of all stripes.

Fiasco Gelato

One of the pioneers of Calgary’s craft ice cream scene, Fiasco makes rich and delicious gelatos and flavourful fruity sorbettos in fun flavours like Bourbon vanilla bean and strawberry rhubarb. Buy it by the pint from local grocery stores or by the scoop at various restaurants around the city, at the Fiasco food truck or at the company’s plant/tasting room.
