Amping up the happiness levels

We only use insanely good quality ingredients. This means we can amp up the happiness levels with taste and there’s a bit of science too. All the lovely goodness from the proteins and fats which our bodies need to help balance our moods creates amino acids. One of which, tryptophan, triggers the happy hormone Serotonin which is associated with improved mood, a sense of wellbeing and happiness. So next time you’re feeling – well anything really – come join us for a Dr. Gelato – and amp up your happiness.

Seriously chilled innovations

Our experimentation lab is constantly seeking new ways to ensure that everyone can enjoy our Gelato with no compromise on quality or taste. New explosions of flavour whether you’re gluten free, dairy free, low fat or vegan are available for you – so there’s no need to miss out on the #happinessrebellion

#happinessrebellion as a way of life

Sharing happiness is our thing. So is doing things differently. And things have certainly changed recently! We’ve seen more acts of kindness than ever and we want to be able to do our bit. So at Dr. Gelato we’re supporting charities who are as committed as we are to the creation of happiness, memories and community.

We use the #happinessrebellion @drgelatouk to share all those moments and it brightens our day.

Every quarter we nominate a charity and develop with them an ice cream that sums up what they’re about. For every scoop sold they get a % of the profit. Get in touch if you’re a charity or would like to nominate one.

Become a Gelatologist – Join our Rebel Family

Our team are all part of our rebel family – they’ve joined us because they choose to be a part of the #happinessrebellion making our little bit of the world a happier place. So if you think you have the chills to be one of our Gelatologists and dispense happiness and kindness with each scoop, one person at a time then we’d love to hear from you.

Who’s behind Dr. Gelato?

We’re obsessively passionate about creating the best ice cream experience on the planet. You’ll find us in our Lab constantly experimenting and learning from some marvellous mistakes. We hope that our flavour explosions will tickle you as much as we enjoy making them. And if you’re still reading here’s a bit about how on earth we found ourselves here!

Thanks for sticking with us, Gavin and Sarah, Chief Gelatologists.

We’re just two people who love gelato. For us it’s not just a treat, it’s a way of life. We’re the family buying ice-cream on holiday at 9am and again at 9pm. All year round. Whatever the weather. When Sarah’s Mum was really tormented with dementia, ice cream brought her joy. Maybe because it was a memory from her childhood, maybe she could still feel the coldness of it even when she lost her sense of taste. We’d buy her an ice cream and as soon as she finished it, she’d ask for another, forgetting she’d just had one. Sometimes she’d have 3 or 4 ice creams in one trip.

Our ice cream odyssey

Our quest for the Holy Grail of ice cream has given us a passion for flavour. From rich, smooth pistachio gelato on a warm Pompeii evening to cinnamon nachos with ice cream topped with strawberry salsa on a Californian beach and the uber cool matcha and black sesame seed scoops on a busy New York street. We’ve tried it all.

But instead of discovering the Holy Grail, we had our own Eureka moment. Why not create the Holy Grail ourselves? And so Dr. Gelato was born.

We’re lovers of bold flavours. Who says you can’t have blue cheese, bacon or barbecue ice cream…. or all three together….are there any limits?

Our friends ask ‘why Gelato?’ Especially given our backgrounds are so diverse. Gavin’s a TV producer responsible for shows such as Big Brother, Deal or No Deal and Planet Earth Live; and Sarah’s a lawyer turned children’s author and teacher. The answer is simple. Whether we’re in the lab experimenting with crazy new flavours or in the shop seeing the delight on peoples faces when they take their first taste. We know we’re bringing people happiness and that’s a pretty amazing feeling. Compared to spending our days in endless meetings, being able to surprise and delight our customers and help them create new memories is the best job in the world.
