Capogiro in NY

I had some of the best gelato of my life in Philly at Capogiro. Now that it's warming up, I have an unbelievable hankering for more Capogiro despite its devastating prices. Can anyone verify if the prepackaged capogiro sold at Whole Foods, Garden of Eden, Balducci's, etc. measures up to the stuff served at their cafes in Philly or specifically, what flavors hold up well under transport?

And if not, what is the best way to get to Bernard's in Long Island where they apparently have the only cafe outside of philly? I need some help folks, I am thinking of moving for this gelato!

Otherwise, I need some gelato that's just as good, made from locally grown ingredients as a replacement...Ciao Bella just doesn't cut it. Not as flavorful or intense.

Flavors like carambola con limone verde, madagascar bourbon vanilla, ginger sesame, pomegranate...oh, it hurts!!! Their madagascar bourbon vanilla is the first and only vanilla I've tasted that has real soul and depth, levels of flavor. Someone help me with my fix!!!
