Ciao Bella Gelato and Sorbet

I've been trying to cut back on sweets over the past few years, so I don't frequent the "frozen desserts" aisle often.

But tonight at Whole Foods, I snuck a peek and noticed the Ciao Bella line of gelato and sorbets. I'd had Ciao Bella at their cafe in New York several years ago, but completely forgot how wonderful it is.
I purchased the Blood Orange Sorbet and the Coconut Sorbet. Oh my goodness. Pure guilt-free sorbet heaven.

The Blood Orange Sorbet (only 98 calories per serving!) has the freshest, most orange-y sweetness, without too much added sugar. The orange really shines through... it's a taste explosion!

The Coconut Sorbet was light but rich. A full, very natural coconut flavor, almost like tasting fresh coconut shavings, but cold and a little icy.

I love Ciao Bella! Thinking about ordering their "Award Winners" pack online, which includes flavors you can't find in stores such as: Valrhona Chocolate Gelato, Tatitian Vanilla Gelato, and Fresh Mint Gelato.

Apparently they have a Lychee Gelato, but I don't think it's sold in stores. Anyone know where I can find it?
