Gelato Fiasco Red Flannel Whoopie Pie Gelato
cream cheese gelato checkered with red velvet cake and "buttons" of chocolate chips
Even the chocolate chips are well thought out. Rather than huge chunks jarring me from my textural playground, they use these tiny "buttons" that add just bumps of texture change, nothing drastic. Just nice little bits of chocolate keeping things interesting but never distracting.
You know, it's funnny how often I wind up talking about flavor last. Well, I like it, it's different. It's cheesy, but not in any kind of offensive way. It's not fake or artificial or overbearing. It's there, but it came to play along, not dominate. Mix in the flavor from the never ending cake bits and you've got a nice overall flavor. Familiar yet different. A frozen treat that's definitely not your typical gelato. Well played Gelato Fiasco, well played indeed.
On Second Scoop: Technically the second scoop was about 90 minutes after the first scoop. However, right now it's two days later and I realized this stuff might make for a nice breakfast. Oh how I wish I could figure out what this reminds me of. I love that it's flavorful but not overbearing. I love the chips. I love the gritty cake texture. Ahh, I'm scooping faster and faster again! I got it, I think one this reminds me a bit of Talenti's chocolate chip stracciatella, except this one is way more fun.
Buy Again? YES!
