Caffe Panna’s Description: Salted milk chocolate ice cream, caramel & marshmallow swirls, Oreo brittle, Reese’s cups. All the pieces you all the time ask for. You win.
Milk Chocolate Ice Cream: There wasn’t a lot ice cream on this pint. The overwhelming majority of the pint was nothing however mix-ins. As a result of there wasn’t sufficient ice cream base to isolate on a spoon, I didn’t actually style the bottom by itself, so I can’t give an opinion about it.
Marshmallow Swirl: Good marshmallow fluff—candy, gooey, robust marshmallow taste. However means an excessive amount of of it. The identical drawback as Caffe Panna’s Graham Central Dedication. About one third of this pint is both marshmallow fluff or caramel swirl.
Caramel Swirl: Candy, thick, flavorful caramel, however a light taste, although, by no means darkish or burnt. Large caramel swimming pools on the underside of the pint. I can’t consider I’m saying it however an excessive amount of caramel.
Oreo Brittle: This tastes like crumbled Oreo cookies. I’m undecided what they imply after they name it “brittle.” Maybe it was soaked in butter and sugar and heated after which crumbled once more? I don’t know. I’d be very to learn a recipe guide from Caffe Panna. There are a number of large Oreo clumps within the backside of the pint, every nicely over an inch in diameter—a enjoyable method to finish a pint. Plus, many thinner Oreo swirls all through. Some swirls are crunchy, however different thinner swirls are softer, extra infused with the ice cream. The Oreo brittle is addictive stuff and there’s a beneficiant quantity of it.
Reese’s Cups: These are pretty large Reese’s chunks and loads of them are well-distributed all through.
General: Caffe Panna’s You Win has all of the mix-ins of an incredible pint—marshmallow fluff, caramel, Oreo crumbles, and chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups. However the deadly flaw here’s a lack of ice cream base. There isn’t sufficient milk chocolate ice cream to stability out the beneficiant quantity of mix-ins. What I acquired is only a pint of pint of sweet and cookies mainly—and it’s terribly candy as a result of I’m consuming Oreos and Reese’s drenched in marshmallow fluff and caramel.
Extra ice cream is required to distinction and stability out the mix-ins. This can be a fairly primary and apparent manufacturing defect. Significantly, once I purchase a pint of ice cream, I count on there to be some ice cream within the pint, not 90% mix-ins and 10% ice cream. Cafe Panna lately reopened after a hiatus and acknowledged manufacturing points in an Instagram Submit. They promised to handle the mix-in to base ratio in future pints. It’s good that they admitted the issue and intend to resolve it, however at $18 a pint from Goldbelly, I really feel fairly upset.
The Graham Central Dedication pint I acquired in the identical field had the same drawback—all mix-ins, little or no base. Two faulty pints from a field of six just isn’t nice. I could ask for a partial refund from Goldbelly for the faulty pints. Hopefully Cafe Panna will resolve this subject within the close to future, as a result of, sure, this might have been an impressive pint. The standard is there, however the ratio of mix-ins to base is means off. 5/10.
