Behold! The new Talenti Argentine Caramel gelato
So what's the difference you ask? Well, technically speaking, sugar and cream switch places at #3 and #4 on the ingredient list, the sea salt is out, we've substituted soybean oil for coconut oil, and we've got vanilla instead of cocoa and brown rice syrup. Actually, it sounds like a lot of changes when I say it that way.
The flavor combo definitely plays out sweeter here. It's trying to be a delightful and somewhat buttery treat. This is a distinctly different product which is kind of intriguing. I guess I'm just surprised (impressed!) that Talenti took the time to create two separate caramel flavors when most companies can barely be bothered to make one.
Now some will miss the truffles... ok, alot of you will probably miss the truffles, but it's not like Talenti jam packs in truffles anyway. I do wish there was something else going on here though. Can you imagine if they used their tiny chocolate flakes in here? heavenly! maybe? I don't know, it's hard to be sure without trying, but your mind can't help but wonder about the possibilities because this just isn't a flavor you plow through. It's just not hooking me in. It's giving me a distinct taste, but I can have several bites and go "yeah, I'm good".
Verdict? Well done, but needs a friend
