If you’ve taken a trip to the ice cream aisle in your local grocery store, chances are you’ve seen some Talenti Gelato flavors lurking there, and we can bet that there were a lot of them too.
Despite its placement in grocery stores and supermarkets, gelato isn’t actually ice cream. It’s actually an Italian variety that’s far more delicious.
It’s with a lot more milk than regular ice cream, to give it that unmistakable smoothness that we all know and love.
Talenti Gelato is one of the biggest producers of this dessert, and it’s not hard to see why, as they also happen to be the best.
It can, however, be hard to know where to begin in terms of choosing the right flavor of Talenti Gelato, after all there are so many.
Thankfully, we’ve compiled a list of some of the very best flavors the company has produced, so you don’t have to work it out for yourself.
Simply keep reading to find yourself on the path to tasting some delicious gelato.
1. Pumpkin Pie
Let’s start off with a seasonal favorite produced by Talenti Gelato.
We’re honestly so in love with this flavor of gelato, it perfectly encapsulates every single thing that we love about the season.
After all, what screams fall more than pumpkin pie, pumpkin latte, pumpkin everything!
This one has all of the classic spices we know and love, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. It tastes super rich and sweet too, like brown sugar.
The best thing about this one however, is that it actually contains little pieces of pumpkin pie crust inside.
Honestly, what could be more amazing than that? This gives it such an amazing texture, but the only issue is that you’ll want to eat it all year round.
2. Mediterranean Mint
We all know that mint can be quite a divisive flavor of gelato, some people love it, and some people hate it.
We think, however, that this mint based gelato produced by Talenti is enough to change the minds of even the most avid mint naysayers.
This one is absolutely perfect for those warm summer months, when the weather’s hot and you need something cool and refreshing to help you out.
It’s great for relaxing by the poolside during the hottest seasons in the month.
If you’re a fan of chocolate chips, the ones in this gelato are simply delicious. Dark, flaky, and ubiquitous, you won’t be able to get enough.
3. Roman Raspberry
Let’s move on to discuss another super flavorsome and refreshing gelato flavor produced by the company.
Their roman raspberry has everything that you could possibly want from this sweet little fruit.
It’s the perfect combination of sweet and tart.
This one reminds us of some of our favorite popsicle flavors when we were growing up, transporting us back to our childhoods with one little taste.
If you’re into raspberries, then we can guarantee you’ll love this one, as it tastes exactly like blended raspberries. Incredibly fresh and tasty.
This is also the gelato flavor produced by the company that has the lowest amount of fat, so if you’re watching your waistline, we recommend that you pick this one up.
4. Caribbean Coconut
Why not move on to look at another super tasty gelato flavor that’s perfect for summer.
Take one bite of this one, and you’ll be transported to a far away land in the Caribbean, without a single care in the world.
But seriously, this flavored gelato is simply to die for.
It uses a combination of mild vanilla, sweet sugar, lots of cream, and coconut to give it a deliciously simple flavor that can’t be beat.
If you want to stick to something fairly plain, but classic, we recommend that you go for this one. It’s sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.
5. Southern Butter Pecan
Calling lovers of all things sweet and delicious, we’ve got the perfect Talenti Gelato flavor for you!
This is probably one of the richest gelato flavors produced by the company, and features the same flavors in our favorite ice cream.
It’s super rich and creamy, so definitely isn’t for the faint of heart. But if you’re into moreish desserts, we recommend that you try this one.
You can really taste the candied pecans in the mix too, which give it a subtle, nutty flavor that we adore.
The best thing about this gelato is that it has a dulce le leche swirl going through the middle, which makes it even more satisfying to eat.
We promise that if you opt for this flavor, you won’t be disappointed.
6. Pacific Coast Pistachio
Pistachio is another one of those flavors that we adore. It’s an absolute classic that has stood the test of time.
If you’ve never tried pistachio flavored gelato before, just ice cream, then we urge you to go ahead and grab yourself this Talenti Gelato flavor.
It’s even creamier than your regular old ice cream.
It’s got a super mild and sweet flavor which isn’t too overpowering, and the little chunks of pistachio nuts that you’ll find scattered around inside really help to bring out the flavors.
It’s also not that bad for you as far as gelato goes, as the pistachio nuts in the ice cream provide you with a decent amount of your protein requirements for the day.
7. Bourbon Fudge Brownie
We’re honestly surprised that we’ve managed to get so far through the list without mentioning a chocolate based flavor produced by the company.
For many of us, chocolate ice cream is a favorite, and we can guarantee that chocolate gelato will be no exception.
If you’re super into chocolate fudge brownies, then this gelato variety perfectly encapsulates everything that we love about the dessert.
It has lots of Belgian chocolate packed inside, so you can guarantee that it’s of the highest quality too.
One of the very best things about this flavor of gelato, is that it’s mixed in with Bourbon whiskey, which isn’t as overpowering as you might first think.
If you’re a lover of super rich and decadent chocolate, then we urge you to pick up this flavor of gelato. We promise that you won’t be sorry.
One extra tip, this flavor actually goes really well with churros, so pick some fresh ones up to go with your gelato.
8. Madagascan Vanilla Bean
We all know that vanilla is the most popular flavor of ice cream and probably gelato on the market, and many people feel bored by it.
But in actual fact, the reason why vanilla is the most popular flavor is because it simply can’t be beat.
Not only this, good vanilla flavored ice cream and gelato can be incredibly difficult to get right. Many of the ones we find in the grocery store can prove to be flavorless.
This gelato produced by Talenti really gets it right though.
The creaminess of this gelato is not to be contended with, and it packs in plenty of cream, sugar and milk to give it that signature texture.
It also uses Madagascan vanilla beans that are of the highest quality, so you know you’re not eating anything synthetic.
We recommend picking a tub of this flavor up, as it works so well with a variety of different desserts.
9. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Cookie dough ice cream is another one of those classics that we all know and love.
In fact, we’ve never come across somebody who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
If you want an even smoothie and creamier version of your favorite ice cream flavor, then you definitely need to try this gelato.
With a super rich yet creamy base, this gelato has plenty of really soft cookie dough chunks packed inside.
There’s really nothing worse than picking up a cookie dough ice cream only to find that it contains a few little morsels of actual dough, but we promise you that this gelato delivers.
If this wasn’t enough, it’s also loaded with a super smooth caramel swirl that runs through the gelato.
You’ll be digging your way through trying to get a taste of it in every bite.

That’s right, this is an original flavor combination invented by the brand, and we’re in love.
Essentially, this gelato contains some of their luxury vanilla ice cream on the top portion of the tub, then some incredibly crumbly pieces of cookie, some pink frosting, and lots of those little sprinkles that we all know and love.
Question is, will you eat this layer by layer, or will you simply mash it all together into a deciduous concoction?
It doesn’t have to be your birthday to enjoy this confetti cookie gelato, indulge yourself all year round.

It’s then layered with some super tasty chocolate flakes.

It contains a lot more elements than you might think too.
Starting off with some premium mint gelato, it moves on to include some super crunchy cookie pieces, lots and lots of fudge sauce, and even more cookie pieces.
Because the fudge sauce is lower down in the bottom portion of the gelato, you’ll really have to dig your spoon in there.
