Argentina’s Freddo Now Serving New Cream, Chocolate, Dulce de Leche & Sorbet Flavors
Since debuting in late 2014 at 610 Lincoln Road, Freddo in Miami, Argentina’s leader in premium helado, has been reuniting Freddo fanatics and creating new ones. Just in time for spring, the helado emporium will introduce eight new irresistible flavors that celebrate the season – Italian Zabaione, Italian Mascarpone, Irish Cream, Dulce de Leche Choco Chip, Brigadeiro, Chocolate Chip, Mango and Raspberry.
Available in cups or fresh cucuruchos (waffle cones), Freddo’s newest cream flavors will include an homage to Europe’s signature gelatos with gluten-free Italian Zabaione – light Italian custard with nuts and rum-infused golden raisins; Italian Mascarpone – semifreddo topped with raspberry purée; and Irish Cream – Irish Velvet Liqueur semifreddo. New chocolate flavors feature an ode to Brazilian chocolate bonbons with Brigadeiro – milk chocolate truffle helado blended with rich dulce de leche; and Chocolate Chip – semifreddo with chocolate flakes. Dulce de leche, Freddo’s signature flavor, gets an upgrade via Dulce de Leche Choco Chip – dulce de leche helado with chocolate flakes. Those craving lighter, refreshing scoops can opt to indulge in new water-based sorbet flavors of Mango and Raspberry – each made with fresh fruit.
Beginning spring 2015, helado aficionados will also be able to enjoy Freddo’s patio seating on bustling Lincoln Road – perfect for people watching and cooling off al fresco.
In keeping with the same standards and traditions since Freddo’s inception in 1969, all helados are made with the highest quality ingredients – from fresh milk, pure cane sugar, fruits and the finest natural and raw ingredients. Freddo’s helados have 0 grams trans-fat per serving (3.5 oz.), and are devoid of preservatives and added vegetable fats. Freddo helado sold in the United States is made in Argentina and shipped under strict protocols to ensure quality control.
Freddo is located at 610 Lincoln Road. Prices for cups and cones range from $4.75 to $7.50; Freddinos are $8; TriFreddos are $8.50; Smoothies are $7.50; and Sundaes are $7.

Since 1969, Freddo has served as the leader in “Helado” (premium artisanal gelato from Argentina) with more than 150 stores in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia and the United Kingdom. Freddo’s products are created from fresh high-quality raw materials delivered daily to its main factory in Buenos Aires. Each day, one of Freddo’s original employees, aptly named the ‘maestro heladero’, develops and tests each flavor and product to ensure the highest quality and consistency with each batch. From there, the products are packaged and shipped from Buenos Aires to Miami’s shores.
