ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — Talenti ― the best-selling gelato in America ― today released three 15th Anniversary Limited-Edition Pints featuring artwork inspired by the brand’s heritage. The hand-drawn illustrations depict the craftsmanship that goes into each flavor ― from the quality ingredients sourced from around the world, to the slow-cooked process that makes the brand “Clearly Talenti.” The Limited-Edition Pint artwork can be found on three popular Talenti flavors, each featuring individual designs:
- The Talenti Alphonso Mango Sorbetto pint artwork features regional motifs inspired by the lotus flowers from the Maharashtra region of India, where Talenti sources its Alphonso mangos.
- The Talenti Double Dark Chocolate Gelato pint artwork features chunks of rich dark chocolate sourced from Belgium which Talenti uses to create a decadent base and then blends with semi-sweet chocolate chips and a hint of vermouth.
- The Talenti Madagascan Vanilla Bean Gelato pint artwork features blooming orchids from the vanilla bean plant of Madagascar. Talenti slow cooks its vanilla beans in cream, sugar and milk – adding a dash of lemon to enhance the floral vanilla notes.
In 2003, Talenti began as a small gelateria in Dallas. The founder, Josh Hochschuler, learned the art of gelato making while living in Argentina and working as an apprentice under a gelato maker. During this time, he learned the craft of making old-world style gelato ― the slow process of cooking batches of ingredients together to infuse maximum flavor. Hochschuler packaged his gelato in the clear pints that today have become synonymous with the Talenti brand and collected by many throughout the country.
“We source quality ingredients from wherever they’re best ― including creamy mangos from the Maharashtra region of India, rich chocolate from Belgium and fragrant vanilla beans from Madagascar– to create the most authentic flavors,” said Russel Lilly, Director of Packaged Ice Cream. “From day one, Talenti has used old-world style methods for its gelato and sorbettos for an unmistakable taste. We’re excited to celebrate our 15th Anniversary with these Limited-Edition Pints, and hope that fans will enjoy collecting them.”
The Limited-Edition Pints are available now, while supplies last. For more information, please visit https://www.talentigelato.com/our-craft and to download images please click here.
