Gelato Fiasco The Big County Brownie Gelato

[New for end of 2014] Oh, for the love of Pete, did I lose another review? I swear I had notes on this one.... where did it.... Oh, nevermind. I remember the main points, plus I still have some left.

chocolate gelato with brownie chunks and truffles 

Let's just jump right to the money shot because if you need a chocolate fix, this one will try very hard to satisfy it. In fact, I'm not sure if it tries a little too hard. It's a fine product, don't get me wrong, but it very much reminds me of their dark chocolate noir sorbetto. In my mind I expected a rich milk chocolate, not deep cocoa. I know, I know, it's nitpicking, you just need to be aware of it before diving in to this one.

Truffle Shot (I feel like I should say something clever here)

On Second Scoop: Oh for the love of all that is frozen, did I lose my second scoop notes too? Seriously? Why is nothing written here. I give up on this one, I really do.... hold on.... I still have a little left in the back of the freezer... just let me.... BAHAHAHAHA! I just dug in to a big pile of brownie pieces. I was going to mention that I didn't feel like I could tell the difference between the two (*because I eat too fast), but sure enough there's at least a half dozen half inch brownie squares at the bottom of this container, they're tasty too. It definitely changes the dynamic of this one. It's a shame the whole pint couldn't be a 50/50 ratio between gelato and brownie... and some whip cream.... and some hot fudge....

Verdict?  wish it had been milk chocolate
Buy Again?  iunno

Looks like I'm going to have to be the professional here and try the pint in my freezer to make this clearer for our readers;]
