Paciugo Announces Veterans Day Promotion

Paciugo announced it will thank veterans and troops on Veterans Day with a free Gelatte.

The Dallas-based specialty brand known for its Italian gelato is giving away a 12 oz. beverage of their newest creation, the Gelatte, to service men and women on their day of celebration. The Gelatte is a hot latte steamed with gelato, resulting in a more flavorful version of the traditional latte.

“We want to do our part in thanking all veterans and troops on their special day with something different, something they can only get at Paciugo,” says John Kelly, Paciugo’s director of marketing.

The secret to the Gelatte is in the gelato, which is handcrafted using high quality ingredients sourced from around the world.  Paciugo (pronounced “pah-CHOO-go,” which means “messy concoction”) recently introduced two new flavors, Apple Caramel and Spiced Pumpkin Gelattes, warming up the menu through November 27.

With nearly 400 recipes in its portfolio, 44 Paciugo Gelato Caffè locations in 16 states each serve an assortment of 32 to 40 flavors, made fresh daily at all gelato caffès. This means their Gelatte can be served as any number of flavors, which allows all current and former military men and women to craft a free Gelatte of their choice.
