I had high hopes for this, really. It wasn’t cheap after all.
I accompanied my mother to Unimart for some grocery shopping last Saturday. I love going to the grocery and seriously, I can stay there all day just looking at the things I can buy and use for cooking.
I was craving some Ben and Jerry’s since I wasn’t able to get it last week from Rustan’s. So I checked the ice cream section and was disappointed to see that they didn’t carry B&J’s.
However I saw this interesting looking tub of gelato and saw they have Stracciatella. It’s my favorite gelato flavor ever. I was so sad when Sol Gelato closed down in Venice Piazza because they make the best gelato I’ve ever tested here in Manila. So I was secretly on a hunt for the next best thing. So I said, why not try this? It was 204.25 pesos for the 425ml tub.
This gelato was really a disappointment. 🙁 I’m not a gelato expert but I was expecting a creamy vanilla textured ice cream with dark chocolate chips/swirls. This isn’t creamy at all. The texture is slightly comparable to sherbet. It’s kind of icy and blah. I couldn’t even finish 3 spoonfuls of it that I placed in my bowl. 🙁
I’m not sure if I just had a bad batch or if there are better flavors that Gelato Edoardo offers. Just don’t waste your money on the Stracciatella flavor.
