Turkey Hill Caramel Cookie Gelato Swirls
vanilla gelato with chocolate cookie pieces and a caramel swirl
I scrape the lid and yeah, I'm excited.
That looks encouraging right?
Yup, it's that salty TH caramel we have before. For those unfamiliar, it ends on a fairly salty note. I wonder if the plentiful, liquidy, salty swirl has kind of messed with the gelato texture more than the other gelato swirls. I guess we'll just have to try them to find out.
You guys know that I've loved Turkey Hill since I was little right? Ok, good, because my honest first impression is not that positive. The consistency is just all wrong here. I'm sure the swirl is partially to blame, but it's come together all weird. it's not like horrible or awful. Maybe it's just something that will take a few bowls to get use to. It's almost... Ahhh, I don't want to say watery.
The flavor really kicks in once you mix everything together. Before mixing, it's more caramel than C&C, though there's enough swirl so that you get some in every bite. It's just that the caramel won't truly sing (permeate) until you swirl it all together.
Ok, I'm going to sleep on this one for now. It's not bad but the texture surprised me and in their defense I am totally debating having another scoop or two, but I'll think I'll go do a few chores first.
On Second Scoop: Oops, meant to write this while I was actually downing a another bowl, but my daughter finished this one off for me since she knew I wasn't in love with it. Yes, it has it's moments. I tried it on a waffle, and again by itself, and it's not terrible mind you. I just didn't fall in love with it... because I guess I don't trust it. It doesn't look quite right and it doesn't feel quite right. Nothing about it strikes me as gelato. I least it's a variation of cookies & cream I guess.
Verdict? not sure
Buy Again? will try the other swirls first
