Gelato is the Italian equivalent of ice cream. Dense and creamy, gelato offers many flavors.

ThisWeek staffers answer the question: Is blackberry gelato the next big thing?

Dennis Laycock: I hope so. Blackberry is the king of fruity flavors.

Lisa Proctor: The recipes I found for it were posted in 2012, so I'm going with no.

Nate Ellis: Sounds pretty good. If it beats out Pokémon Go we can all do stories about it.

Andrew King: I think that would require gelato to overtake traditional ice cream in popularity.

Scott Hummel: If blackberry gelato isn't the next big thing, I don't know what is.

Neil Thompson: I doubt it. Hasn't blackberry gelato been around for a while?

Abby Armbruster: Pretty much any type of gelato will always be delicious, so I don't think blackberry gelato is an exception.

Sarah Sole: I'd eat it.

Lee Cochran: Next big thing might be a bit of a stretch, but it is good.
