TROVVEN Insider Intel:

We touched based with Gelato Fiasco for the total 411. Take notes:

What's the vibe at Gelato Fiasco?

Gelato Fiasco is a made-fresh-daily gelato shop that's open year-round, with about 40 flavors of gelato available. Special and seasonal flavors change continually, so there's always something new. It's a warm place with plenty of seating, wifi, and late hours (open until 11 p.m. daily). Waffle cones are made fresh, and there's a full coffee bar with pour-over roasts and espresso, too.

What's a must-order on the menu?

It depends on whether you like smooth flavors or chunks and swirls. For smooth, look at Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Gelato or Ripe Mango Sorbetto. For chunky, check out Sunken Treasure -- that's a brown butter gelato with bourbon-butter orbs, salty pretzel booty, and a fudge swirl -- or Torched Marshmallow S'More Gelato.

Why is Gelato Fiasco the perfect pit-spot during a visit to Bowdoin?

The Brunswick location is Gelato Fiasco's original spot and Flagship Store. While the company started with just this store, today Gelato Fiasco is the nation's No. 1 independently owned gelato brand, with pints at more than 5,000 grocers across the United States. Each pint is made at the company's Flavor Foundry with great ingredients. Visiting the original Flagship Store is like visiting the mothership.
