There's nothing fishy about this.

I know you’ve heard of strange foods throughout your life, and you’ve probably even tasted them, you daredevil. You’ve seen people talking about the doughnut burger, avocado toast, and worst of all, candy corn. Blech.

But despite trying the best desserts around, we doubt you've heard of this newest dessert: gelato... shaped like sushi.

That’s right, gelato shaped like sushi! Not sushi with gelato in it, just sculptures of California rolls and dragon rolls made with chocolate and gelato.

Who thought of this totally random concept? The dessert store Gelarto did. The founder of Gelarto, Luca Grassi, has been specializing in gourmet gelato since 1986, making him a master of the art of Italian Ice.

Luca Grassi is an actual artist when it comes to Italian Ice. He has been awarded titles such as "Maestri" (Master) and "Oltre i Maestri del Gusto" (Beyond the Masters of Taste) for his gelato artworks and for his business ideals. He has been hard at work for 30 years with his craft.

If you had to trust anyone to make your gelato, then it should definitely be Luca Grassi, the master Gelato-maker. Your gelato will be delicious, gluten-free and fat-free!

This sushi-shaped gelato is a little bit healthier than your regular ice cream choice, so you won’t feel too bad about breaking your diet. Treating yourself to some ice cream has never felt so adventurous.

The gelato has multiple flavors to make each different roll a journey on your taste buds. Not only do you have to trick your mind into believing the Italian ice treat is not really sushi, but you also have to realize that it will be utterly delicious.

There are a variety of flavors to choose from: mint chocolate chip, cherries and cream, salted caramel, and more, all covering all your bases for your dessert tastes. To help bring together the real experience of eating sushi, you can also use chopsticks. (Hopefully, you know how to use them.)

You can easily fool your friends on Instagram or Twitter with these realistic non-sushi treats. The creator makes the gelato sushi look just like regular sushi by using multiple colors in his creations.

If you happen to scroll by it on your Instagram feed, you would probably be baffled at how anyone could call these raw fish-lookalikes Italian ice. You’ll probably even get a lot of likes from bamboozling your followers into thinking you’re eating salted caramel-flavored sushi.

If you ever decide to take a trip to New York, don’t forget about Gelarto. Try the perfectly crafted sushi-shaped gelato and bask in the many flavors you get to choose. If you don’t believe me, go check it out for yourself. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
