Forte {High Protein} Gelato GIVEAWAY

by Hillary on February 11, 2014

Move over Tuesday Tidbits, we’ve got some gelato in the house. Well, technically, half of the sample I was sent has already been devoured, but that’s beyond the point. I had to sample all of the flavors before I could write an honest review post anyway.

You all know ice cream is my weakness, right? This kale, kombucha, and chia seed-loving girl can admittingly polish off a pint of Ben & Jerry’s with ease. I don’t only crave creamy, cold ice cream in the hot summer months either; hello holiday Peppermint Bark!

The folks at Forte Gelato caught word of my obsession with creamy frozen desserts (and my knack for nutrition); they offered to send me a taste of their high-protein, low-fat gelato — say whhaaat!?

As I said above, I’ve nearly plowed through half of the dozen samples sent to me last Wednesday… do the math ;)

I found in coincidental that their four flavors are my favorite flavors: espresso, chocolate, ginger, and vanilla. I am a simple girl when it comes to my gelato/ice cream. I swear they made this product just for me.

I was definitely interested in the stellar nutritional profile — 15 grams of protein in 4 ounces is rather impressive! And while I was a tad apprehensive that the agave would add an obnoxious amount of sweetness, it surprisingly doesn’t do so. I guess this has to do with the simple, not-too-sweet flavor choices like espresso and ginger.

While nutrition stats have their importance, I was most curious in the ingredient lists. That is where I always look first when scoping out a new product.

“Quality ingredients like rBST-free skim milk and cream, rBST-free milk proteins, organic agave nectar and cage-free egg yolks make each perfectly portioned treat as wholesome as it is decadent.” (source)

My square Italian gelato spoons give Forte Gelato a stamp lick of approval.

Homemade ice cream is my favorite because it can be customized and is oh so creamy and dreamy.

Wow, this gelato sounds AMAZING! I need to try this ASAP and would love to win :)

I love ice cream and fro yo. My favorite flavor is probably chocolate mint chip or chocolate peanut butter, and lately I’ve been digging Stonyfield Farms mint chocolate. So yummy!

Ben and Jerry’s Cinnamon Bun ice cream is ah-may-zing
But I am always up for vanilla or coffee flavored ice cream

I bought one of these today. I have to say it was good and didn’t leave me feeling like I ate a whole cake, but my biggest issue was that the one I bought didn’t have a seal of any kind. And I dont like things that come without a seal. Call me paranoid, but I couldn’t help but wonder if it was already opened. True that some things don’t have seals, but I will not be buying this again for fear I would get another unsealed container. I let it slide because going back to the store would be a hassle and I didn’t want to waste the money by throwing it away.

Hi Cyndi – None of my samples had seals, but I think it would be smart of the company to add one. Great suggestion!
