Antonio Federici Pistachio Gelato (Sainsbury’s)
When I wrote about the Panna Cotta variety of this ice cream I may have been a little lacklustre, but I was left a comment suggesting I give the brand another chance and try the Pistachio variety.
Well if somebody recommends I try something it feels only right that I should give it a go.
Also the Pistachio variety sounded lovely, as regular readers will know I am a big fan of nuts.
As I found the previous tub difficult to serve, I took this one out of the freezer a little while before serving, and this helped it to spoon out of the tub with no trouble at all. The texture of the ice cream is a little thicker than regular ice cream, but I liked it and it made it feel quite luxurious. The ice cream is really lovely, a sweet nutty taste in a lovely creamy base. The nut taste is well defined, and can easily be recognised as Pistachio. I was very impressed by the product, and very glad I gave the brand a second chance. I do hope this flavour isn’t a ‘Limited Edition’ like the packaging suggests.
