Joe Dellucci's Gelato review // Coconut and Creme CaramelSunday, June 05, 2016
I've been given an amazing opportunity to work with Sarah at Joe Delucci's Gelato to review a few samples of the new flavours they are selling in selected Tesco stores throughout the UK.
I have spotted Joe Delucci's ice cream in shops before but had never tried any. Joe Delucci's is sold at Tesco for £3.99 for the 500ml tub, which I think is an amazing price for such a big container. I have been given two of their newbies to try - Coconut Gelato and Creme Caramel.
Firstly I have to say that I love coconut, so my expectations were particularly high for this one. Luckily I wasn't disappointed - it tastes like white heaven! It's light, smooth, creamy and as weird as it sounds for an ice cream - super soft. It also contains shredded coconut, which adds extra flavour. This is what snow should taste like!
The texture of this ice cream was almost the same as the coconut one - very creamy and silky. The flavour is a little sweeter but still quite mild. Unfortunately I couldn't get to the caramel sauce straight away, as it was all at the bottom of the tub. I had to dig really hard until I reached some of it but I'll admit I am not such a big fan of the sauce. I think it tasted too artificial and ruined the whole flavour for me.
In conclusion - Joe Delucci's Gelato could easily become one of my favourite ice creams. I'm curious to try a different flavour next time but at the moment Coconut Gelato is definitely a winner for me!
