Frozen elegance

Notice any additional little freezer cases appearing in grocery stores over the past few months? Curious eyes that peer into the frosty, white boxes may find an earth-toned rainbow of frozen sorbetto and gelato pops in simple cellophane wrappers called Bar Gelato by Naia from a gelateria in the Bay Area. Of 25 flavors, nine of them are sorbettos, so they're dairy- and egg-free, such as the elegant kiwi and the Masumoto Farm peach bars. The ingredients are sourced from nearby farms and companies—including the Masumoto Family Farm near Fresno and the Guittard Chocolate Company in the Bay Area, the latter of which makes for a stellar vegan dark-chocolate pop. Find these treats at Whole Foods Markets, Courtyard Market at Sacramento State University (6000 J Street) and other locations listed at
