Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Salted Caramel Gelato

Trader Joe’s Salted Caramel Gelato

Tastes Like:  Words fail!  It’s creamy, savory, sweet.  But does it taste like salted caramel?  I would say “no.”  It’s got a sort of butterscotch-y flavor to it, and it’s delicious, don’t get me wrong.  I’m not even sure if I’d know the taste of “salted caramel,” to be honest with you.  This ice cream is GOOD, though.

Great With:  You know, I feel like the flavor alone is so strong, any toppings you’d put on this would be too much?  Even sprinkles!  Well, maybe not if they were rainbow sprinkles.

Perfect For:  Blogging time.  The robust sweetness of this ice cream is nice paired with a decaf chai tea and several unfinished drafts that need finishing touches!

Must Know:  Contains milk and soy.  No evidence of gluten or gluten ingredients.  It is not vegan.

$4.99 is a bit much for ice cream, yes.  However, a tiny carton of Ben & Jerry’s will never cost you less than $5 in the city.  It’s a great splurge every once in a while, even though it’s pricier than some of their other ice creams, it really feels like you get a lot.

  1. Must have! $4.99 fair to me. Quart is bigger than a pint after all. Plus, it sounds super delicious! I haven't been to TJ's in forever. I'll have to go next weekend, I'm headed to the 607 for this one. Man, I wish they'd get a TJ!

    • To be fair, though, $4.99 is still kind of a lot…I try to only buy ice cream at the PathMark up the street from me when it's on sale, like the giant Edy's ice creams 2 for $6 or Breyer's 2/$5. But this was worth the splurge! Their pumpkin ice cream is still the absolute best ever though!
