Talenti Chocolate Sorbetto #38
No surprises here.
To be honest, it reminds me of a tootsie roll, in a more, slightly watery foundation anyway. To keep it simple, this won't be winning any awards any time soon, it's too similar to other things I've tried. Ofcourse, saying it that way isn't proper. If you wan't an excellent chocolate sorbet, Gelato Fiasco offers several including a very dark chocolate one.
Basically for me there is no wow factor, I've already been spoiled. It's nice this will be widely available, and it doesn't have much competition in the sorbet space, but it's too late for me, I've had better. I'll be honest, I'm mad at myself for not trying one of the other flavors first.
If you've never had chocolate sorbetto, sure, give it a try. Junk Food Guy did and really enjoyed it. If you've had Gelato Fiasco, just skip this one for now, unless you want to save $2 a pint.
On Second Scoop: Ok, I tried a trick. Since the edges and top of my pint are textured a little different then the rest of the pint (traveling? freezer burn? who knows), I just ate the center on my second scooping, and that did help me focus on what matters. I think my problem still boils down to being spoiled by what has come before. This is just regular chocolate sorbetto and doesn't have those rich dark notes that I've had in other products, not does it have an x-factor like say peppermint. I just don't think this is my thing. The product is fine, but be prepared for it to not blow your mind, that's all.
On Final Scoop: I may have cheated and smashed some Oreo Thins in to my final serving, and I must say, it was the right choice. It's a shame they didn't take the cookie bits from their Caramel Cookie Crunch flavor and put them in here, now that would have been fun!
Buy Again? not my thing
