Gelato Fiasco Darkest Chocolate Peppermint Sorbetto
dark chocolate sorbetto with a "hint" or peppermint
Now let's stop for a second right there before we dig in. A "hint" of peppermint? Really? That threw me totally off guard here. I mean, GF is always thinking outside the pint, but I wasn't expecting such a mild tweak to the dark chocolate noir sorbetto that they already offer.
One final comment. I don't know if it's my imagination or the little sugar puddles, but this one seems a little smoother (wetter) than the straight chocolate sorbetto. The puddles seem to be counteracting the dry bitterness of the cocoa a bit... and for me, that's a cool thing. This is still a slow scooper, you still want to savor each small bite, but I had more encouragement to keep going forward.
On Second Scoop: Well, this was unexpected. Opening the pint has let the peppermint breathe and it's much more noticeable now. It's not a peppermint kick mind you, but there's no denying it's existence. The third scooping may have even been more balanced. I've never noticed this in a mint flavor before, but there's a first time for everything!
Verdict? Intense chocolate with a peppermint vibe
