Kemps Frozen Yogurt Shop Vanilla Salted Caramel

[New for 2015] With four new Kemps Froyo Shop flavors available, we've already covered C&C and PB Cup, so let's dig in to the "trendy" one.

I take a bite and realize that I can sum this flavor up in two words. Ready?

"Too Salty"

I wonder if they over salt it to distract from any misgivings you might have towards frozen yogurt.

Unfortunately, it's unpleasant when consumed directly. Granted, I can be overly sensitive to the salty nature of things, but yeah, this is nothing I would recommend unless you really dig the salt in SALTy caramel.

Thankfully my first scooping went in to this breakfast sundae, but I'll do another plain scooping later.

Weird, it looks like the caramel is injected (rather than swirled like Breyers)

On Second Scoop: This pint does have some positive qualities. It's a fairly clean/clear flavor for a froyo, but again, it's that salted caramel that is distracting me from the usual froyo funk. In fact, there's almost a... hard to describe... salty.... grit? no, not grit, but there is "uniqueness" of how the salt and the froyo texture come together. I personally can't handle it, I long ago broke my ability to process a salty flavor like this. It's a long story that involves soft pretzels, but I know lots of you love the salty aspect so I don't want to put this one down too much. Just don't go in expecting salty and sweet, it's more like SALTY and sweet.

Verdict?  Too salty
Buy Again?  not for me

Why the curls are clustered close to each other? Should they be spread out? They should reduce the salt I agree.

Just looking at the sodium content per serving, I can tell that this is a salty one.

@Alek: in a perfect world, yeah, they would be more spread out

@Stride: the texture exacerbates the salty nature, bleck (I can't believe I spelled that right on the first try)

I really wanted to try this one but all the salted caramel flavors are always too salty for me. I keep hoping to find one that isn't unpleasant but not having much luck. Just not my flavor I guess!
