Experiences buying Capogiro online?

Hey all, I'm considering ordering Capogiro online and was wondering if it differs much from how it tastes in their stores (I guess more in terms of texture than taste, really)? I've never been to Capogiro but have heard so many great things that I'm considering buying it over their website to try it out.

    It's nearly as good, the only problem is that for it to have the right texture, it needs to be defrosted a bit before you eat it, and once you've done that, you really can't re-freeze it without killing the texture. So just portion out however much you want, let it warm up a bit, and enjoy. But don't take the whole pint out of the freezer unless you mean to finish it.

      I know that when you take pints home to freeze (if you don't eat them on the way), they tend to get much harder than what is served in the store. The flavor is the same of course but the textures a bit different as you suspected. It's much better than nothing but not quite like getting it at the store.
