Okay, regular readers of ThingsThatWeDo.com know that our family has certain taste preferences and lemon happens to be one of them. Lemon chicken, lemonade, lemon and honey tea are all yummy. Is it any wonder then that I spotted this tub of Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato during a recent grocery trip? I’d never seen it before an wanted to know more before I bought it. I picked up said tub of Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato and then promptly put it back down.
Want to know why?
Product Review: What ingredients are in the Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato?
Here are the ingredients that went into making Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato: water, sugar, glucose syrup solids, natural flavour, citric acid, carob bean gum, modified cellulose, guar gum.
Have you figured out why I put down the container of Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato yet?
For starters, I’m supposed to be looking at a tub of lemon gelato, right? So…WHERE IS THE WORD LEMON ON THE INGREDIENT LIST?
Oh wait, it’s NOT THERE.
Thus, essentially, the folks who made the Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato are asking me to shove my face into a lemon gelato that has absolutely no real lemon in it and they have the nerve to tag it as ‘luxurious lemoncello’?
Riiiiiiiiiiight. So, let me see. Next time I go to a restaurant to order a burger and they tell me it’s a beef burger on the menu but dyed sawdust shows up on my plate in between two burger buns, I should be okay with that, right?
I understand I’m looking at a frozen treat and that there are plenty of other frozen treats out there with worse lists. However, that doesn’t mean it’s okay for everyone else to sit by and do a subpar job and expect consumers to not notice that something is still amiss.
*deep breath, ending rant*
Okay, I feel better (I think).
Product Review: How does Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato taste?
I have no idea what Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato tastes like and I’m okay with that. Don’t get me wrong, it probably tastes really delicious or maybe it doesn’t because I’ll be able to taste its artificiality. Who knows?
I’m not willing to spend the money to find out.
Back on August 9, 2012, I did a review on the PC Blue Menu Key Lime Sherbet. Now, lime and lemon are pretty similar. Back then, I was willing to buy the PC Blue Menu Key Lime Sherbet for a taste test. Why? I won’t list all the reasons (you can read my review by clicking the link below) but one of the main reasons I was willing to try it is because the word lime at least appeared on the ingredient list which is more than what I can say for the Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato.
Our family is picky but we do have our fair share of treats but we do have a bare minimum threshold we have to uphold and sadly, the Dorgel Luxurious Lemoncello Gelato just doesn’t cut it. Sorry!
