Liveblogging: this is where I type between bites
My brain was in serious need of something to cool it down. I wasn't really sure what to get and then there it was, just waiting to tease me with it's one dollar off sale price. Talenti's Double Dark Chocolate Gelato. Freezing cold dark chocolateness sitting there in it's see thru container.
Are those dark chocolate chips I see?
Off goes the plastic seal and then off goes the lid.
Mmmmmmmmmm, dark chocolate. It is a little dry, but not stunningly dry. Maybe the very dense nature of the gelato is offsetting the dryness. I'd say it has struck a nice balance between the dry and the creamy.
The dark chocolate chips are small, but they are abundant so I'm getting some in every scoop. They are so small they are more like little flavor bursts more than a full dark chocolate onslaught. I'm definitely enjoying the crunch they are adding.
Hmmm, I'm detecting something strange. I can't quiet place it. Not that I have any experience, but I want to say it's almost an alcoholic quality. I know this taste but can't elaborate.
Have I mentioned the chips everywhere? They are right on the money here, very nice.
Ok, ingredient check time: Hmmm, everything looks normal ...wait, here it is, Vermouth! Ha! I knew it was an alcohol flavor. I may not drink, but that doesn't mean I can't pick up on these things. I wonder why they do that?
"Semisweet Callebaut Chocolate morsels imported from Belgian are immersed in dark chocolate gelato together with a splash of vermouth, which gives new tempting definition to smooth and rich"
This is definitely well made but it's time to put it in the freezer....
Hmmm, the flavor is lingering a bit. It's a mild cocoa-ish flavor
I like it for being different and I appreciate the level of quality in their products. I don't foresee buying this again unless I was pairing it with some like really fancy dessert.
