Whole Foods Caramel & Sea Salt Italian Gelato
Okay, that exclamation point was a little bit unnecessary. Basically everyone has a gelato line including most grocery stores so it was only a matter of time before Whole Foods got in on the action. I want to say they released the line either late last year or early this year but that's all semantics at this point. Seeing as sea salt caramel is the trendiest of all gelato flavors, I guess that's where I have to start with this one.
Honestly, I have low expectations going into this one. Let's be honest, "gelato" that comes from these kinds of packages aren't all that promising. Thankfully this isn't Breyer's or your typical store brand so maybe Whole Foods won't mess it up... too badly.
The sauce is where the majority of the saltiness comes from with the base being a bit more buttery. The sauce doesn't add much in the way of texture either which is a shame. Thankfully, this isn't some airy product like other brands. It's denser than typical ice cream but I'm not going to call it gelato. It's right in the middle of a mainstream brand and something like Haagen-Dazs. It's a nice texture and definitely reminds me of a good ice cream. Gelato however, it is not.
At like $6 a container, I can't see me grabbing this one again. I'm not really likely to try any of the other flavors to be honest. The hazelnut did have my eye but I feel like that'll leave me disappointed. I think I'll just stick with the half gallons to review from now on.
Verdict? Nothing new
Buy Again? Nope
