Why is Gelato so expensive / overpriced outside continental Europe?

echoclerk | Nov 28, 2012 05:26 AM

It may just be Italy and Germany but its shocking how much more expensive it is in the UK.

Italy and Germany you will often pay less than €1 euro per scoop of good gelato whereas in the
UK its more like £1.80 - £2 or more for the equivalent. Which is more than twice the price.

Is it simply that Italians and Germans are bigger Gelato eaters and hence there is a more Competitive Market for gelato there?

Is there some mysterious gelato cartel in the UK artificially pushing up prices?
The OEGC ?
