Gelato on wheels now available in Toronto

Posted by Laura Adams / June 20, 2013

Be good gelatoBe Good Gelato is the latest addition to Toronto's competitive market for frozen summer treats. Unlike other gelaterias, however, Be Good is entirely mobile, selling its gelato sandwiches and scoops around town from a hybrid freezer/bicycle contraption. Customers can place orders for delivery anywhere in the area bounded by Bloor, Front, Pape and Bathurst. You can also follow Be Good on Twitter to learn where to find the nifty gelato bike next.

After a quick check on Twitter one afternoon, I easily located Be Good at Yonge-Dundas Square, and enjoyed a delicious (and hefty) sandwich made with smooth vanilla gelato and chewy Sweet Flour chocolate chip cookies ($5). The artisanal gelato is handmade from scratch, and comes in flavours like vanilla, chocolate, cherry, mocha, and seasonal fruits. You can also buy a cup of gelato from the bike for $4. For deliveries, the minimum order is $30. The owners say they are open to making custom flavours (like beer gelato, perhaps?) and catering events.

Toronto has plenty of fine gelato shops, but I'd recommend checking out Be Good Gelato if you're in the mood for embarking on a little gelato treasure hunt around the city. Or, if you're feeling a little lazy and want your dessert to come to you.

What a great idea! I also had a delicious ice pop from Philips Ice Pops at the Dundas West Street Festival. I love that we have selection for frozen treats. Both of these companies are great additions to Toronto's food landscape!

@dickeedee... You are right but where did they all go? It's very uncommon to see them on the street anymore.

Looks delicious! What about citrus/coconut combination? Can't wait to try any of your treats!

Do you sell weed out of your freezer? Everyone kknows to ask the adult dickie dee man that.

Are you subject to the same vending restrictions/food handling restrictions as other mobile businesses? I think that's what dried up this market so I'm curious how you've managed.

I love the ice-cream sandwiches -- simply delicious! Can't wait to have another.

I had Be Good wild blueberry and peach gelato at the Brickworks Blueberry festival today and it was TO DIE FOR. I'll have to keep an eye for it on Twitter next time we're downtown.

I had your Blueberry and Lemongrass gelato last Sunday, August 25 at Evergreen Brickworks. OMG, it's so GOOD. I told my friends about it. Where can I buy them?

I had the Italian Cherry Ice Cream + Double Choc Chip Cookie ice-cream sandwich today at the SickKids Farmer's Market (every Tuesday till 3pm).

BEST Ice-cream sandwich I've ever had. Amazing. Huge portion size for $5. You'll be seeing more of me! :)
