Why is pistachio such a popular gelato flavor?

Do you know?

Don't get me wrong, I love pistachio in all of its iterations, including ice cream (and sorbet if I could ever make it with pistachio).

But it seems like pistachio is a much more popular flavor in gelato form than in ice cream form. True, or am I imagining things?

Again, I'm not knocking pistachio gelato, but just curious why it seems to be more favored as a gelato than as an ice cream.

(As an aside, I used to adore the Thrifty's Pistachio Nut Ice Cream. When it was 10ยข a scoop, it was always Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, and Pistachio Nut, in that order, for me.)
