PAZZO ONE SHOT Joker

DIY or DIE Review
Joker is supposed to taste like a Cannoli. Upon mixing it, it smells absolutely delicious. Not only do you get the aroma of a flaky, powdered sugared, cannoli shell, but also a touch of the cream in the nose as well. Unfortunately, after mixing it, the flavour isn’t as accurate. The flavour is more in line with CAP Glazed Doughnut, or TFA Frosted Donut. There’s a bit of that “playdough” aroma that sometimes can leave people running for the hills. I don’t really get that with FA Joker too much, and in fact, I think the flavour is great. It’s layered and balanced well, you can taste the flaky buttery shell, and also a bit of the powdered sugar, but the cream is lacking. As for accuracy, it misses the mark. As for taste, I enjoy it.
Gave this 3 stars, sits kind of between 3 & 4 to me. After a month steep I get more of a custard taste and a very very faint bakery side of things. My inlaws are italian and we have eaten many of the real thing, this isnt it. Not complete in my opinion as a one shot as its too lopsided towards the custard.
It does though pair well enough with other flavours to be of use. I mixed this with some raspberry and its not bad at all. I actually prefer this as just a custard to use in mixes rather than Flavour Arts actual custard. So yeah 3.5.
