Paciugo Gelato is meeting the need for pumpkin flavored yumminess that drives cravings this time of the year with their offering of a Spiced Pumpkin gelato thru November 27th. Since Dallas based Paciugo has locations across the United States, chances are you are within driving distance of this amazingly flavored treat. The spiciness comes from copious yet restrained amounts of clove in their mixture which builds as you devour it, I ordered mine doubled with their Dark Chocolate Fondente and all I can say is its well worth the caloric investment. Although gelato has roughly 70% less fat than premium ice cream without any loss of flavor or satisfying creaminess. So indulge if you can. Did I mention they can turn any of their gelato flavors into lattes? They don’t use syrups either. Sooo good.
Trader Joe’s does it again. Quickly rising to the top of retail establishments offering pumpkin flavored delights, their Super Premium Pumpkin Ice Cream is a home run. In fact, you should stop reading this post and go out and buy some, no kidding. I found this ice cream to be richly flavored, abundantly spiced and smoother than any pie filling or cream cheese version of any traditional pumpkin desert that I’ve ever had. If I have a criticism, I miss a little crunch to play off the creaminess. Some nice additions would be crumbled graham crackers, or chopped walnuts. True decadence can be found with chocolate syrup. Gotta go, mine’s melting…
Always love it when for no obvious reason beyond a love of the holiday, advertisers spend effort to showcase Halloween. Check this out on the Ben & Jerry’s website. You can click through to the haunted mansion in the background as well. Love the Flavor Graveyard!
