I pull off the lid and this gelato smells perfect. Oh I do love the smell of peanut butter in chocolate. It's just one of those wonderful smells that I can't get enough of. I know, I'm an addict.
Not the best shot, but check out the cute little peanut butter cups.
There doesn't seem to be a ton of them, but they are around.
To my surprise, there's actually a soft gooey filling inside.
Do I have you drooling yet? Is the kid in you just dying to run out to the store and pick up seven pints of this stuff? Well... hold your horses there my friend. We've got a possible problem. There is something weird going on here, it's like an unnatural smoothness or something. Now there is coconut oil in here for some reason, but I'm not positive that is what is causing the issue since I don't taste coconut (I don't think anyway). At first I was thinking maybe they mix peanuts and coconut oil. The weirdness is so hard to describe. It's definitely in the base. You know how I complained that the sea salt caramel flavor is almost too dry? Well, this one is almost too wet. I started wondering if maybe they put peanut oil in the base gelato to spice things up and then somehow that messes with the texture.
Well, I've gotten 1/3 down into this pint even though something ain't right, plus I still want to keep going. I keep waiting for the weirdness to go away. Ok, I'm full enough for now, I'm thinking this will be better on the second scoop. Sometimes things are just so different that you can't settle in at first. Stay tuned for the second scoop tomorrow.
On Second Scoop: I'm back, and as expected, the second scoop went better. I had a bit of an epiphany this morning. I don't remember where or when, but I think I've had some all natural or fresh pressed peanut butter at some point and that's how this gelato tastes. I think they infuse the gelato with peanut oil and that's how they make it so soft and flavorful, and I mean really soft. Fresh out of the freezer and this one scoops like a cold 3 Musketeers bar. You take that factor and combine it with a peanut butter swirl that is probably the most plentiful peanut butter swirl I have ever seen. This one is different, but oh it's done amazingly well. So much peanut butter, so soft, so tempting to eat the whole thing.
The Final Scoop: I never did figure out what the underlying taste is, but that didn't stop me from polishing off this well made treat. Make sure to check back and let us know what you think of it.
Verdict? possibly the fanciest chocolate and peanut butter flavor you will ever find in a store
