Cheer up Charlie because the frozen version of Willy Wonka is setting up shop in North Andover this spring! Join Pazzo Gelato Café, located at 99 Turnpike Street for a whimsical week dedicated to the music makers and the dreamers of dreams! Jim Demotses, owner of Pazzo Gelato will host Willy Wonka Week from April 6th-12th 2014 in celebration of the inspiring story that helped start his business- after all invention is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation and 2% butterscotch ripple.
“When I opened Pazzo Gelato I had Willy Wonka’s magical factory in mind. The classic movie inspired the colorful and somewhat delicious walls of my shop - proof that anything is possible!”
Much like the edible wallpaper, Pazzo Gelato and the flavors they produce serve as an outlet for imagination. To most, taking a spoonful of gelato that embodies the taste of something else is part of the fun! During all of Willy Wonka Week, Jim has created exclusive flavors as an ode to the dreamers who enter his ‘factory’.
Here is a sneak peek of the Wonka-inspired flavors, only available during that week:
Snozberry Sorbet: In Italian "fruto de bosco" (fruit of the woods) strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and raspberry
Everlasting Gobstopper: Trio of guava, passion fruit and blood orange sorbets
The Classic Wonka Bar: Coffee Gelato with chunks of Dark chocolate and caramel milk chocolate and Teddy Graham cookies
Scrumdiddlyumptious: Vanilla Mint milk chocolate, toffee pieces, peanuts, cookie pieces
Augustus: Mocha Chip
The Bad Egg: Zabaione Marsala gelato
Television Chocolate: Chocolate gelato with sprinkles & cookies and cream
Oompa Loompa: Cara Cara Orange Sorbet with chocolate Straciatella
Fizzy Lifting Gelato: Peach sorbet with prosecco
The fun doesn’t stop there! While Pazzo can’t promise participants a lifetime supply of gelato- they’re offering 365 days’ worth! Each day during Willy Wonka Week one lucky child will win The Ultimate Purple Ticket awarding them one year of FREE gelato! Also, prior to the magical week, some very special people in the community will be receiving a PURPLE ticket in the mail, which invites them to create their own exclusive flavor to be showcased during Wonka Week! So rejoice at the fun and flavor that lies ahead. After all, “Don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted. He lived happily ever after”
