I am a big fan of Talenti Gelato. I was first introduced to the brand a few years ago and I have been in love ever since.
Two of my favorite flavors are Sea Salt Caramel and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. Of course I am always open to enjoying other flavors, but those two are my personal favorites. I just wish our local grocery store would carry those flavors more often.
Have you seen Talenti’s Gelato Pops? I haven’t tried them yet but I am always very tempted to purchase a package every time I see them in the store. They look so good!
Gelato Pops are available in several yummy flavors including Caribbean Coconut, Mediterranean Mint and Banana Swirl.
Talenti Gelato has introduced new flavors to their ever growing product line. The new flavors are;
- Raspberries & Cream
- Fudge Brownie
- Caramel Apple Pie
Talenti was kind enough to send me the three new flavors and several other Talenti Gelato flavors. Mmmm!!!!! I could not wait to dig into each of them.
First and foremost I must say that I LOVE Talenti for a variety of reasons. One of them are the great containers the Gelato comes in. They are made of plastic with a twist top. They are excellent for repurposing. I’ve used the containers to hold Q-tips, make up, jewelry, craft supplies and left over foods.
I would love to turn one into a piggy bank but I can’t figure out how to cut a slit in the top.
I could not wait to try the new flavors, especially the Raspberries & Cream. I honestly thought Fudge Brownie would be the first flavor I tried, but the moment I saw the red Raspberry speckles in the creamy white vanilla ice cream I knew I had to try it first.
The thing about Talenti Gelatos is that the Gelato tastes EXACTLY like name of of the Gelato. For example, the Raspberry & Cream has bits of Raspberries (what taste like fresh Raspberries that were frozen and mixed in the Gelato) embedded in a sweet and creamy vanilla Gelato.
Since fruits and veggies are plentiful during the summer months the Raspberry & Cream is a great summer time treat.
I tried the Caramel Apple Pie next. I was “iffy” on that flavor but once I tried it I loved it. It tastes like apple pie ala mode! You can even taste a bit of cinnamon in the Gelato.
If you were to put freshly made apply pie, topped it with vanilla Gelato and a drizzle of caramel sauce then mixed it in a blender and froze it you’d have Caramel Apple Pie Gelato. That is what it tastes like.
If you like fudge you’ll be head over heels in love with Fudge Brownie. It’s chocolate heaven!
My kids “attacked” my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. So it’s long gone. However my Sea Salt Caramel still has some left. If you like caramel (real caramel) then you MUST try Sea Salt Caramel. It takes like a real, soft caramel that melts in your mouth. It’s hard to believe it’s Gelato.
I tried Lisbon Lemon for the first time. Wow! That is good. It’s more like a Sorbet then a Gelato. It tastes like the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon (but not as tart) and frozen into a tasty dessert.
The Alphonso Mango took a bit to grow on me. I’m not a big mango fan. The first few times I tried it I didn’t like it (again, I don’t really like Mango) but it did grow on me after a while.
There are no suprirses when it comes to Talenti Gelato. What ever the name of the Gelato is you can expect it to taste exactly like it. It’s amazing! I don’t know how they do it.
I hope they continue to come up with new and exciting flavors. Currently they have about two dozen flavors.
