Madisono's Teaching Local Kids the Science of Gelato

Being a science kid himself, Matt Madison is very pleased to be teaching the fun of science to some local sixth graders at Kilgour School in Cincinnati, Ohio. Together with Mary Schleuter, who developed the P.I.E. (Partnership in Innovative Education) program and the teachers at Kilgour, the children will be learning the business and science of making one of our favorite treats: gelato!

The project was featured on The List with Jennell Watson on Wednesday night.

New Madisono's Spring Flavors: Hokey Pokey

Spring will be here soon, believe it or not. And we've got some delicious seasonal flavors that will make your mouth burst with joy.

Hokey Pokey is a flavor that has a fun history. We created this flavor for the Xavier Music Series when we wanted to make the musician from New Zealand feel a little closer to home. One of the most popular ice cream flavors in New Zealand is called the Hokey Pokey. So we made some of our own honeycomb toffee and blended it into our famously delicious Madagascar Vanilla. It was a big hit, so we thought we'd add it to our regular line of flavors. Insert happy dance.

All the buzz is about Madisono's New Flavor: Espresso Bean!

We are very buzzed to tell you about one of our newest flavors of Madisono's Gelato! It started with a smooth espresso gelato and because we were so pumped up, we threw in some chocolate covered espresso beans for crunch. If you think that sounds good (and trust us, it is!) try some on a dark chocolate brownie...divine!

Alphonso Mango in Madisono's Sorbet

Why do we use Alphonso Mangoes in our Madisono's Mango Sorbet? Alphonso mangoes are imported from India and are something of a national obsession. They deliver the sweetest, richest mango flavor to our sorbet and help us deliver delicious flavor to you. Now, how about a smoothie? ;o)
