Review: Kemp's Sea Salt Caramel Truffle Frozen Yogurt

I've touched on Kemp's frozen yogurt products at various times throughout the blog's history.  I'm usually limited by the price and the lack of selection at my local Kroger, but on a recent trip, both of those things were no longer an issue as Kroger added a new flavor option AND also put it on sale.  Combined with a one dollar off coupon via their Kroger mobile app, I was able to pick up a 1.5 quart container of this Kemp's Sea Salt Caramel Truffle Frozen Yogurt for a very respectable $2.99.  Each container has twelve half-cup sized servings and each serving comes in a fairy economical (for a dessert) 140 calories.

I'd describe this myself, but as I've written many times on this blog, I'm lazy and would much rather have Kemp's do it since their website did such a good job describing this (in my opinion).  "Caramel frozen yogurt with caramel filled chocolate truffles, sea salt, and ribbons of caramel."  So yeah, that's a pretty basic description, but it gets right to the point without me boring you with crazy details.  I will add that in my container, the ribbon of caramel was not that prevalent (it was still present) and the truffles, while also present, were not there in ample quantities.  I will also point out that while this did have a mild smell of caramel from the smooth frozen yogurt, it wasn't particularly potent.

As I took my first spoonful, I went straight for the caramel frozen yogurt and what I got was something that was smooth and semi-creamy and had a mild taste of caramel, similar to the smell.  Being that sea salt was a component of this whole package, I could tell that perhaps the sea salt was part of that caramel frozen yogurt as it had kind of a "dry" taste, which would imply that the saltiness was having its desired effect.  As for the other components of the package, the caramel swirl (what there was of it) was gooey and brought more caramel flavor, although it wasn't really sweet at all.  The only real sweetness in this came from the chocolate truffles as they brought crunch and some decadent chocolate flavor the salty caramel yogurt and swirl.

Buy It or Fly By It?  As a total package, this wasn't great, but it also wasn't bad either.  It was an enjoyable mix of sweet and salty that didn't really got to the extreme in other direction.  Being that it was enjoyable, it gets a BUY IT rating from me and I certainly am looking forward to finishing this one off to help fill my insatiable craving for sweets and dessert.
