“I first found Shy Guy because I was looking for real, locally made, small batch ice cream in the Burlington area. I tried one of the very first pints of gelato that Shy Guy ever sold, and I was instantly blown away.
The flavor of their gelato is amazingly fresh and pure. I did not realize how artificial most other ice cream tasted until I started to get gelato from Shy Guy. Several flavors I had never liked much before have become my favorites (especially the mint and hazelnut).
They make traditionally bold flavors subtle and mild flavors rich in a way that makes me think, “why doesn’t everyone make it this way?”. After watching the gelato being made, I realized it was because Shy Guy puts in the care and effort to buy fresh, local ingredients and prepare everything by hand. The results are spectacular.
They have no fear of experimenting with new ideas and suggestions. They seem to approach every new flavor with confidence that if it is made well, any food can become a tasty sorbet or gelato. Thus far they have succeeded every time. ”
