Now I was a bit worried that this flavor had been discontinued and I got an expired pint (it has happened before) but much to my surprise, this one doesn’t expire until the end of this year. I was able to find another website that carries this flavor so maybe it’s just in limited supply. We learned from Perry’s that making a white chocolate flavor can get very pricy so that could be the reason it’s so hard to find. Whatever the case may be, I feel like I possess the Big Foot of frozen desserts.
Finding information on this flavor is pretty hard but I was able to find a description of this gelato. It is “White chocolate gelato with ripples of fresh crushed raspberries and a hint of cinnamon.” White chocolate and raspberries is a classic combination but the addition of cinnamon has me a little confused. I can’t say I’ve ever had cinnamon combined with either of those two ingredients by themselves, let alone with them combined. I’m all for more cinnamon in frozen desserts though. I’m anxious to see how this will all work together.
Untwisting the lid just further amplified that visual.
Digging in, I almost forgot how smooth Talenti is. Hmm, this flavor is very interesting to say the least. The cinnamon is the dominant flavor from the start. The slowly transitions into the buttery white chocolate flavor but then out of nowhere it switches back to the cinnamon. It’s as if the two flavors are competing against one another and the cinnamon ends up winning. Now this isn’t a “spicy” cinnamon as much as it is on the sweet side. The combination of the sweet cinnamon and the buttery white chocolate is delicious, almost even addictive.
Verdict? Cinnamon and white chocolate is a surprisingly good combo but the raspberry swirls just don’t fit in.
Buy Again? If I could find it, I would consider picking it up again
