CHARLOTTE, NC – August 18, 2017 --The lure of an “Icicle Tricycle” will be noticeable on the streets of Uptown beginning tomorrow, as Bar Cocoa and The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte introduce gelato on wheels for the remainder of the warm weather season.

Plying local streets from Trade and Tryon to BB&T Ballpark and Bank of America Stadium, the hotel’s gelato trike is reminiscent of the neighborhood ice cream trucks of our childhoods, albeit with human power and an epicurean offering of chilled gelato from the Chefs of The Ritz-Carlton.

The trike will offer sorbet push pops and pints of house gelato, priced at $2 USD and $4 USD respectively. By-the-pint selections will include Chocolate Hazelnut, Vanilla Bean, Cookies and Cream, and Pistachio and Cherry. Push pops will be offered in Raspberry, Lemon, Mango and Watermelon.

Look for the gelato trike at select times and locations throughout the week. For those who miss it, the same gelato is available at Bar Cocoa in The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte and may be enjoyed both on the Bar Cocoa sidewalk terrace and at Bar Cocoa’s indoor dining nook.
