In a new trend, artisan gelato shops continue to open in Tuscany and Florence, making the area the seventh highest region for ice-cream production. As a result, gelato consumption among Florentines has also risen to about 12 kilograms per year. Cream, chocolate and fiordilatte are the favourite flavours.
