The Story of Bittersweet Chocolate

For the real scoop on Three Twins' flavors, we went straight to the source: Founding Twin Neal Gottlieb. Here’s what he says about our traditional flavor with a twist, Bittersweet Chocolate.

Bittersweet Chocolate is our standard chocolate ice cream, but there's really nothing standard about it. An abundance of organic cocoa makes it darker than most chocolate ice creams, and it also adds an incredibly rich flavor and texture.

The milk, cream, sugar and eggs that we use to make our clean, simple base form a blank palette on which to build this enticing flavor. We then add more organic cocoa than is standard. And, the twist: At a point where others consider their chocolate ice cream finished, we add the same organic vanilla extract that helps make so many of our other flavors so darn good. In fact, we actually add as much vanilla to our Bittersweet Chocolate as we put in our Madagascar Vanilla. We think that you are worth it – you really do deserve this phenomenally delicious creation.

Bitter in name only, this flavor is a joy to know.

Fun fact: My original chocolate ice cream at my first scoop shop was called Mmmmm Chocolate. Or maybe it was Mmmm Chocolate. I can't really remember. But, what I do remember is that it wasn't nearly as dark as my Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream and it wasn't nearly as phenomenal. So I stopped making it and focused on this version, instead.
