ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J.– Talenti® Gelato & Sorbetto – the best-selling gelato brand in the United States* – is unveiling four new flavor varieties for 2017, underscoring the brand’s commitment to constantly update its portfolio with handcrafted new flavors:
- Cinnamon Peach Biscuit Gelato includes cinnamon sugar gelato blended with a peach butter swirl and crunchy biscuit pieces. Real cinnamon sticks are steeped in milk and cream to help create this flavor.
- Peanut Butter Fudge Sorbetto leads with indulgent, smooth peanut butter sorbetto featuring decadent fudge swirls. This new flavor includes 30 percent real peanut butter and is made without milk.
- Vanilla Chai Gelato brews chai spices and black tea leaves into creamy vanilla gelato. Talenti tried more than 25 variations of chai before landing on this unique combination.
- Vanilla Blueberry Crumble Gelato features the Talenti classic vanilla with thick blueberry sauce made from real blueberries and crunchy brown sugar oat clusters blended into creamy gelato. The blueberries in this flavor are sustainably sourced in the U.S.
Talenti is committed to using only the best ingredients when creating its sorbetto and gelato flavors. Real milk and fine, pure cane sugar are blended with ingredients sourced from around the globe. Talenti also relies on artisanal cooking methods designed to create robust flavor profiles. The final product goes into the signature Talenti jar – which is a clear, recyclable, resealable and BPA-free container.
“With every new innovation, our unique process and world-class ingredients are of the utmost importance,” said Josh Hochschuler, founder of Talenti. “These qualities make Talenti truly stand out amongst a sea of choices in the frozen aisle. From brewing the chai spices with black tea leaves for our Vanilla Chai Gelato, to sustainably sourcing our blueberries in the Vanilla Blueberry Crumble Gelato – we are excited for consumers to experience these fabulous new flavors.”
The four new flavors are available in grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99-$5.99 per pint. With these new additions, consumers now have 40 total gelato and sorbetto flavors to select from in the Talenti flavor portfolio.
