A step above the norm

3 Posted on 05 / 23 / 2014

Grom is not merely another gelateria with a few vegan sorbets: They are making commendable efforts for ecological sustainability, growing their own organic fruits for use in their sorbets, using FSC-certified paper and compostable utensils.

As another reviewer has noted, the dark chocolate is *not* vegetarian (contains eggs). As of May 2014, none of Grom's gelatos are vegan (though most of the sorbets are). For ingredient list, see http://www.grom.it/ita/intolleranze.php (but keep in mind it might not be completely up to date).

Indeed, it is unfortunate that so few vegan items are available, because they know how to do them well. On my visit, there were only three, and of these only one (limone) was labeled organic.

I hope Grom will continue to move toward a more vegan-friendly and eco-friendly model.

Pros: organic and eco-friendly
Cons: limited vegan options

A waste of time

Although there was only one review on this site I had sen so many rave reviews on other holiday sites that we decided to try it. After queueing for about half an hour I found only one vegan sorbet, tired and surly staff and silly prices.


Cons: No vegan choice, Surly staff, Silly prices

Only the usual vegan fruit sorbet options

Although Grom does offer a very delicious very dark chocolate (I mean seriously dark) sorbet, for vegans you only have that one and 3 fruit sorbet varieties to choose from, so it's not much better than any other gelateria. It is nice that it's organic, but I didn't find the labeling to be super clear (flavors listed only in Italian and what looked like Japanese).

In summary, if you love dark chocolate, go for that flavor. Otherwise it's just okay.

It's sort of down an alley right off one of the main plazas in Florence.

Pros: Amazing dark chocolate flavor
Cons: Limited flavor options

    Information upon the dark chocolate sorbet at Grom is incorrect, infact this flavor is not vegan because it contains eggs. You can find a clear scheme of the main ingredients of all their products at www.grom.it/ita/intolleranze.php
