Ever tried a boba float?
It’s just one of the options Lulu’s offers at their gelato stand!
Lulu’s Gelato is only open on the weekends, so make sure to get your fix! You can usually find their stand from 2-6pm at the Jonesville Persimmons and Fruit Tree Nursery, but this Sunday they will also be at the Food Truck Rally/Arts & Crafts Extravaganza (GNV Commons at 100 SW 1st Ave).
I finally got the chance to visit the Jonesville stand and it was easy to find with plenty of parking. The setting is beautiful as well with lots of trees and plants at Tropical Roots Plant Co. right behind the stand. There is plenty of outdoor seating as well.
With the rise of AAPI hate crimes in the U.S., I love how they are donating tips for the months of April and May to Apex for Youth, an organization in NYC that helps underserved Asian and immigrant youth.
Lulu’s offers delicious flavors of gelato and sorbets all created by Chef Johnny, boba floats, which are soda, gelato, and chewy boba, as well as beignets.
Not only is their Gelato delicious, but they also offer many flavors you would not find elsewhere like Black Sesame, Sweet Taro, Honey Lavender, and Butter Finger.
Since you can choose up to 2 flavors, I chose Black Sesame and Sweet Taro gelato, which ($4) came with crushed nuts and black sesame seeds as toppings. The Black Sesame gelato had a really robust, nutty flavor mixed with smooth milky creaminess. The sweet taro flavor was also so delicious and the flavor was strong! I am already looking forward to having these flavors again.
I also added boba as a topping for $1 and the boba was very chewy and on the firmer side, but really good.
For the Boba Float ($5) you get to choose a soda (Sprite, Root Beer, Orange Soda, Coke) and add any flavor of Gelato or Sorbet. This is such a genius idea and so refreshing on a hot day!
I chose Sprite and was recommended the Pina Colada gelato to pair with it as they were out of their Vanilla. They even gave me some extra soda left over and it was the perfect mix of bubbly carbonation and sweet cream, along with the chewy boba.
The Beignets ($3/4 pieces, $4/6 pieces), a deep fried pastry delicacy, were fried fresh and warm with a crunchy outer shell and tons of powdered sugar on top. I tried to stop myself but ended up having five pieces!
