Turkey Hill Sea Salt Caramel Gelato
caramel gelato with caramel truffles
Nothing really peaking through yet...
Ofcourse I snagged a truffle after taking this picture.
Let's start with the disclaimer that I haven't messed with Turkey Hill's gelato since March. That said, it's been a long year and I'm wondering if I will appreciate it more now even though I'm kind of meh on many caramel flavors. Wow, sorry to start this off on the meh note. My bad. Let's dig in.
I'll be honest, I still have trouble telling this from their all natural ice cream. I mean, my brain is registering some kind of difference, it's a bit denser/heavier, but it's not night and day. It's maybe 4pm vs 6pm.
Caramel flavor is decent. Not too buttery, not too sweet, and not too burnt. The salt level? Yeah, it's noticeable and not something I could write off. At least the overall flavor isn't flat or super mild, because that would just be super annoying.
Ok, that's it for the first scooping. We've got a good amount of flavor, a fair amount of truffles, and the texture is decent (though I fear Shaws may have let my quart get a little too warm at some point).
On Second Scoop: Oh geez, I can't get a bite without a truffle in it and that my friends is a definite #FunFactor. I mean I am mostly done my serving and I've still got like six truffles in my bowl. At the moment I'm not sure where I'd rank it among other contenders, but it's doing it's job and I can't knock that. Well done Turkey Hill.
Verdict? not bad at all
Buy Again? if the urge struck
