FORT MYERS, Fl. - A new Southwest Florida business is helping you satisfy your sweet tooth while taking a trip to Italy.  Sweet Ginger's Gelato is serving up authentic Italian gelato.

The owner, Ginger Sweet, travelled overseas to learn how the treat is made and brought those tools back to the states.  With the help of her master chef, the business makes well known and custom flavors from chocolate, to safron to lemon basil.

"Research it, go to school out there, hire a chef and actually learn how to make real Italian gelato because I really think it's completely different than what we have here in the United States and I think it's important to educate your customers about what they're eating," Sweet says.

Sweet Ginger's makes their gelato fresh every day, and most of their ingredients come straight from Italy.
