Made with milk, and containing a fraction of the butterfat content of ice cream, gelato offers advantages health-wise, but that's not really why people eat it, said Theresa Anderson, who owns Swan Chocolates in Merrimack with her husband Michael.

"Some of our customers are people who experienced gelato in Europe and couldn't wait to have it again," said Anderson. "But the rest are people who have heard about it and are curious to see what all the talk is about. They love it."
"It's a business that will never fail," he said. "People may not have the money to go out to dinner, but they'll always have the money to go out for gelato."
“It's fascinating to see how the flavors play off of each other,” Theresa Anderson said. “It's really fun to experiment.”firstname.lastname@example.org
