TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: New Talenti Gelato Flavors

Among the happiest days of THE NIBBLE’s year are when the samples of Talenti Gelato & Sorbetto’s new flavors arrive. This privately owned business produces a superior artisan ice cream at a better price than the big “superpremium” brands like Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s.

Discriminating consumers know it. As proof, since 2007, Talenti’s revenue has exploded from $1 million to $49.3 million in 2012, the last year for which we could obtain figures.

Three new flavors have recently joined the line:

Caramel Apple Pie is more cinnamon apple pie with a subtle hint of caramel in the swirl, which is just fine with us. With plentiful pieces of Red Delicious apples and flaky pie crust, it is like apple pie in pint. Instead of baking a pie for a gathering, bring a few pints of it!

Fudge Brownie is an extra-dark chocolate with a welcome bittersweet edge and chewy chunks of brownie. If there could be an improvement on the original Talenti Double Dark Chocolate gelato, this is it.

Raspberry Vanilla is like a dish of fresh raspberries and cream that has been frozen. The sweet cream gelato with pieces of fresh berries has a tart raspberry and balsamic ripple for a sophisticated twist.


Talenti gelato also has 30% less fat than regular ice cream—though you’d never know it. It’s a better-for-you option that’s as rich and creamy as you want it to be.

The milk used is rBST free. Vegans and those avoiding lactose can enjoy four delicious sorbets.


Like all Talenti flavors, these new flavors are made using the finest natural ingredients that are carefully sourced from around the world: chocolate from Belgium, caramel from Argentina and mangoes from India, to name a few. Premium fresh fruit and spices are used.

The line, which includes sorbetto and ice pops, is certified kosher (dairy) by OU. The products are available at major retailers nationwide, at a suggested retail price of $4.99-$5.99

Those who judge an ice cream line by its vanilla are encouraged to try the ethereal Tahitian Vanilla Bean. Chocolate lovers can dish up Double Dark Chocolate and Belgian Milk Chocolate (try a combination of both!).

Our personal favorites: Banana Chocolate Swirl and Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip.

Check out all 25 Talenti flavors.

And please, Talenti: We’d love for you to make peach gelato. Maybe for next summer?

Also in stores nationwide are Talenti’s Gelato Pops, in 8 delicious flavors dipped in Belgian chocolate. We’re especially addicted to Banana Swirl and Caribbean Coconut.

Chomping at the bit? Here’s a store locator.

Coda: Talenti’s unique see-through containers can be popped into the dishwasher and reused for food storage. Or, make everyone a piggy bank to collect loose that pesky loose change.

    Talenti is the best gelato I have had in the US. My two favorites are hazelnut and black cherry. Would you consider making peach and black walnut? How about lemon gelato?

    There is no labeling on their packaging or on their website that says they use RBST-free dairy. Where did you get that information?

    The information came from the company; you can find it on the website. We don’t recall ever seeing “rBST-free” on an ingredients label, as it’s not part of federal ingredients labeling (i.e., no regulation requires a company to state if their milk is or is not rBST-free). Instead, it would be used as a marketing device on the package, along with fat free, gluten free, etc., by companies choosing to promote the benefit.
