First of all I got 3 scoops in the sundae:
- Brown Butter Almond Brittle (Amazing, probably my #2 next to Dark Chocolate)
- Buckeye State (#4 IMO)
- Salted Caramel (#5 IMO)
- Chocolate Blackout (Shaved Chocolate Pieces)
- Salty Caramel (Crushed up Graham Cracker Pieces)
Overall, the basic Jeni's flavors are superior as you would expect, and as I have went into detail on, but overall the Gravel does not add as much as you would expect. It honestly was worse than Cold Stone's mix-ins. The Chocolate Blackout was ok, but it's nothing like their dark chocolate ice cream, very mediocre in flavoring/taste, and the Salty Caramel was not much better. It really did not feel like a crushed up Graham Cracker. It just had a basic bland taste to it kind of similar to a stale cracker that had little chunks and little debris along the outside of the ice cream.
If i were to go back to Jeni's next time for a trio it would be without the gravel because it was not worth the time or extra money for it to be had. It honestly did nothing for the mix-in nor did it enhance it and I think it just made the final product worse. So take caution when you are going to add gravel. If i were to add gravel, I would stick to a caramel or fudge sauce with the Donut Gravel (which I didn't try). These are things i will consider for the future and give a review on when i do give it a whirl. Until next time!
