I’ve tried Sweet Magnolia’s gelato in the past and really liked it. When I worked for Whole Foods, they would give away free small cups of any flavor brought on Vendor Sundays. So when we started carrying it where I work now, the Basil Sorbet caught my eye.
I love basil. I’m Italian, I’m required to. I grow it, and I put it in almost everything. So the thought of a basil-based sweet is fascinating.
Like I said, my workplace started carrying Sweet Magnolia a few weeks ago, and I’ve seen a wide variety of flavors flow in, but none as intriguing as this pastel green invention.
The basil leaf is a cute touch.
Up front, it’s pretty sweet, and you definitely get the basil, but it really pulls through with the aftertaste. It leaves behind a nice, refreshing flavor.
Since Sweet Magnolia flavors tend to come and go (they have tons!), grab a pint if you can still get your hands on it! It’s a great treat!
