Maine inspired flavor from a Maine company - seems like the appropriate first sample
Gelato Fiasco Maine Wild Blueberry Crisp Gelato
Vanilla gelato, blueberries from Maine's coast, and original oat streusel
And now the good news: I really like this flavor... A LOT. It's a very subtle blueberry flavoring, so I thank them for that. It's just so nice to have a subtle take on blueberry, I'm so tired of that fake blueberry flavor you find in everything. Sure a decade ago that fakeness amused me, but it wore me down over time. A flavor like this reminds me of what a blueberry can really do.
My favorite part? The little crust bits that somehow add a touch of underlying flavor to every bite. It totally seals the deal for me. It's one thing to go searching for big crust bits in a flavor like this, but what I really want is to have that streusel flavor in every bite, whether or not I get a big chunk of it. I never want to forget about them. I want that constant contrast to the blueberries and I've got it here.
Speaking of blueberries, they are present, but they never wallop you with a bitter taste or any kind of jarring texture change. They're pleasant, just like the rest of this gelato. So nice. This is just such a pleasant flavor that I don't want to stop scooping. It's like a delicate blueberry muffin flavor... actually it's like i mixed a blueberry muffin with some excellent ice cream. Man this is good stuff!!
On Second (and third) Scoop: Yeah, I'm gonna miss this one. The flavor profile is really catchy. It feels familiar and comforting. This is a rare flavor indeed. Even damaged, this one is still awesome. That says a lot in my book. Stay tuned for the other flavor reviews, they're all top notch as well.
Buy Again? would if I could!
