Breyers GELATO Indulgences : Raspberry Cheesecake
Cheesecake gelato with luscious raspberry sauce & gourmet graham crumble
I take a few more bites to investigate and there's definitely a bit of gumminess to it. If blindfolded, I might think this was a frozen dairy dessert. Yeah, I dig straight down for several more bites and I'm not overly impressed. Cheesecake flavor is decent and not overpowering, but the texture seems wrong (though ironically this says product of Italy on the bottom).
Time for more crumbles. They are softer than you expect, and not real sugary. While they may show graham crackers on the label, that's not how it comes across... I guess there is a bit of graham flavor there, but it's more like graham cake than graham cracker (this reminds me of a bread I've had but I cant remember the name of it).
The swirl does go all the way down and has a gel-like consistency. If you grab a little too much it might over power you. It's not bad though, not too sweet, not too tart.
I think we'll call this container four servings. Basically there are two pieces/squirts in to the container, and about half a squirt should tide me over. Ok, 1/4 quarter gone, let's go recap.
Ok, this is not a bad product. I still foresee a lot of people liking it, and I think my wife will dig this particular flavor. That said, this is not a great product. When compared to Talenti or Gelato Fiasco, this is definitely a more economical, main stream gelato-like product. Just like Haagen-Daz gelato seems too much like their regular ice cream, this product reminds me too much of Breyers gummy frozen dairy desserts. They must be using some of the same tricks and the more I sit here and think about it, the more it kind of annoys me that they went that road. I just don't like gummy in my frozen treats.
Verdict? relatively cheap at $4.42, but is it really gelato?
Buy this product line Again? I'll still try the other flavors (like Triple Chocolate)
Note: Thanks to reader Eve, we now know that these Breyer's gelatos seem to bare some relationship to various Carte D'or flavors from across Europe.
