Gelato Fiasco Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Gelato
roasted almonds and chocolate chips in almond butter gelato
Wow, so textured. The almond bits are just obliterated and literally everywhere. The chocolate is no slouch either. This one is almond flavor first with a chocolate note to round things out. Interesting. Let's take a few more bites.
Man this stuff is fun to look at on my spoon. Tiny chocolate specs and you can see bits of both the lighter inside and darker outside of the almond. What? I could just stare at this all day and not even eat it... ok, I would eat it eventually, but I'm just happy staring at it.
Ok, I should be reviewing more, sorry. This one isn't salty or sweet, it's just almond with a nice note of chocolate (neither too dark nor too milky). It's being what it set out to be. It's not really my thing, but the execution is just delightful. It's got their excellent gelato texture and quality, it's just choke full of stuff, it's gorgeous, and if you love almonds you will absolutely adore this.
And now it's time to debate if I want another serving. Well done GF.
On Second Scoop: Alrighty, another third of the pint has been consumed for my afternoon snacking pleasure. This really is a well crafted, unique product, it's just that almond isn't my thing. The chocolate flavoring is a backup, not a main player, so this one is almond first in texture and flavoring. It's pedal to the metal almond through and through. It's not.... wait, I have another way to put it. What if this had a strong milk chocolate flavor mixed in to the base, it would totally taste like a candy bar. You could really jack up the toffee aspects and turn it in to a Heath flavor.... but this is Gelato Fiasco, they've probably already down that in their scoop shops :)
Final thoughts: ok, I just stole one more scooping for some better photos and I hope it's clear that this is an excellent product. I adore products with a rich texture and this has that in spades. I just don't love-love it because I don't love-love almonds. I hope that makes sense!
Verdict? Best strong almond flavor available
Buy Again? if it was my thing (but it's not)
