Gelato Fiasco Strawberry Balsamic Sorbetto
& Gelato Fiasco Dark Chocolate Noir Sorbetto
Yes, somehow I got up the nerve to treat a frozen treat with vinegar in it! It's a brave new day people, but vinegar is cool right? Hehehe. Actually, I really wanted something light and fruity and this was my best option, so I went for it. I think I can! I think I can!
Ok, on the one hand, this SBS is really good. On the other hand, I can't get over the smell! I don't get vinegar on a salad, let alone in my ice cream. I mean, technically speaking I understand that the vinegar accentuates the strawberry flavor (which really pops here), but on a personal level, I don't get wanting to smell vinegar while I enjoy something so sweet and tasty. I've sampled this a few times and while I dig the popping strawberry sorbetto, I'm not sure how many tries it's going to take to get over the smell.
On Second Scoop: This one is gone now and the gentle yet ever present aroma aside, there is part of me that will miss the crispness of this particular strawberry treat. It's such a vibrant flavor that's hard to resist, even for me. Thanks for the learning lesson guys!
Another day, I've got a cold, and I need a chocolate fix. I'm not even sure how to photograph it because it's so dark, my usual (pitiful) bag of tricks just isn't going to cut it... hopefully you still get the idea though. It's dark, it's dense, and it smells wonderful.
Wow, this stuff is so dark and rich, color me very impressed. The first comparison that pops into my mind is that it reminds me of brownie batter. It's dark, rich, and as you may have guessed, a little goes a real long way. Use a small spoon on the this one my friends.
Ok, I tried to photograph my finished bowl because the melted remains look like hot fudge sauce, actually, you could say this tastes like frozen hot fudge sauce as well.
On Second Scoop: I'm such an idiot for not trying chocolate sorbetto sooner. This is just such a neat trick, like cold spoonable fudge or something. Again, so dark, so rich, so so so much fun to slow scoop. It's low fat so you can have a bunch, but take this one slow, real slow, and really enjoy every bite, the way fancy chocolate stuff is meant to be devoured. I never have a ton of it because a bunch of some bites is enough to get my chocolate fix and get me going again. Awesome job, I'll never hesitate on a chocolate sorbetto again!
Verdict? Both are excellent
Buy Again? Yup!
