Paciugo Offers Sneak Peak Of New Flavor With Free Scoop

Dallas based Paciugo recently announced that it will release four new flavors during the next month.  Of course, tasting the new flavors is much more fun than hearing about them!

The first new flavor, Chocolate Chipotle Butter Pecan, will be “unveiled” this Friday, April 30.  The remaining three flavors will be released to the public one per week over the next 30 days.

Fortunately, our friends at Paciugo Gelato & Caffè in Hermosa Beach are so excited about the first new flavor, they are offering a sneak peak for Facebook fans on the day before the unveiling.

On Thursday, April 29 between 6pm to 10pm, Facebook fans of the Hermosa Beach Paciugo — and readers of South Bay Foodies! — are invited to get a FREE SCOOP of Chocolate Chipotle Buttered Pecan before it is available to the general public.

If you need help deciding whether or not to try some of their very tasty gelato, consider these descriptions of the new flavors:

– Chocolate Chipotle Butter Pecan – offers a deliciously smooth and intense flavor that is smoky, creamy and crunchy, buttery and spicy. Made with extra brute chocolate from Belgium, a smoke-dried jalapeño pepper combines with a light spread of pecans that are buttered and toasted until crisp to perfect the flavor concoction.

– Roasted Banana Cashew Heath Crunch – an Italian twist on an ice cream classic! The ripe bananas are first roasted with brown sugar to create a silky smooth texture and intense flavor as it blends with gelato to create the right degree of extravagant sweetness. Buttery cashew pieces are lightly toasted to add a salty taste while chewy chunks of Heath bar create a combination guaranteed to make you want more.

– Durian – known in Southeast Asia as the “King of Fruits,” Durian pulp has the consistency of an avocado which creates gelato with a buttery, custard like texture. With a beautiful, golden yellow color and an equally unique smell, it’s no wonder toasted coconut was chosen as a complement to Durian Gelato. The crunchiness of the toasted coconut and the sweet aroma contrast pleasantly with the silky texture.

– Organic Maple and Caramelized Bacon – an interpretation of the Maple Bacon Crunch ice cream that took home the “Best in Class” award, chosen for its bold flavor and dark color. The maple syrup creates a heightened natural contrast of sweet and salty, smooth and crunchy when paired with caramelized bacon. Overall, a delicious treat.

YES!  Its no surprise that they would save for last what may potentially be the best flavor out of the four: maple and bacon! I’ll be looking forward to trying that one out.

  1. Hey Michael,

    Did you try the new flavor? How was it? I totally agree about the maple and bacon, that might beat out “wedding cake” as my favorite!

  2. Of course i tried the new flavor! IT was very good; intense chocolate, slightly nutty, and with a subtle heat. The heat is a slow, creeping one so to get it takes two tastes. The first taste is more chocolaty and nutty and the second one is spicy. Of course with the silky texture of gelato, it makes for a fun, creamy treat.

    Stay tuned for updates on the other flavors. LOL!

  3. Looks like I’ll be making a stop later this week. I’m eager to try out that Roasted Banana Cashew Crunch. Wedding Cake is my current favorite. Let’s see after this week!

  4. OMG!!!! You have to be kidding! This is what makes driving to Hermosa worth it.
