Looking Glass and Sugar & Snow Collaborate in the name of Great Gelato

sugar and snow

Two Asheville Area businesses, Looking Glass Creamery and Sugar & Snow Gelato are teaming up in the name of delicious gelato. Sugar & Snow Gelato is a local company that has always made their popular line of gelato from scratch.

When it came time to find another dairy provider to keep up with demand, she saw an opportunity to bring her sourcing even closer to home.
