Austin's Teo Espresso and Gelato won third place in this weekend's Gelato World Tour competition, which means they will move on to the finals in Rimini, Italy this September to compete for the title of best in the world. Their winning flavor was "Nuts," a peanut butter and chocolate hazelnut combination. Owner Matthew Lee previously told Eater he's spent weeks preparing for the competition.
Sponsored by Carpigiani Gelato University, the Gelato World Tour's Austin stop brought together sixteen of North America's best gelato artisans, and the winners were selected by a combination of judges' and people's voting. Vancouver's Bella Gelateria took first place overall, and Versace Gelateria of Florida came in second place.
