Talenti Raspberries & Cream Gelato
Pieces of fresh raspberries and a tart, balsamic ripple in sweet cream gelato
Such a busy pint!
If you hate cream cheese, obviously you'll want to avoid this one. Me? Well, while my wife and daughter love bagels and cream cheese, but warm cream cheese has never been my thing. Instead, I like it cold! I usually sneak some cold Philly cream cheese on some Ritz crackers if I get a chance. So, turn that pleasant cold cream cheese flavor I like in to a nice, mild cream cheese flavored gelato, and you've got a winner. I think this might be the flavor that finally makes my wife a Talenti die hard fan like me.
The more I eat, the more I want. I wasn't sure how I much I wanted to eat at first, but it's got me hooked after a few bites. The flavor balance between the raspberries and cream is really working well. Oh my word do I want to eat this entire pint.... The start of the week is always tough and I just want to spend the next 15-20 minutes making this new gelato disappear. I'm using every bit of self control to not inhale the rest of this. Nice job talenti, the world of cream cheese lovers is yours for the taking with this one.
On Second Scoop: [note: I wrote this before getting the official flavor description] Hahaha, I was going to say that I got a hint of balsamic vinegar... and sure enough, it's in the ingredient list! I'm getting pretty good at this ice cream review thing. I know this will never be part of my go-to flavor pack, but there's no denying the quality or originality of this flavor. I love that talenti is putting themselves out there like this. Fancy, not but too crazy. Something new and unique but not scary. Wait, one more point. As colorful as all these photos have been, I could actually use a bit more raspberry flavor. It's a mild cream cheese flavor with an even milder raspberry flavor to go with it. However, it's still really cool and I am truly impressed with how that cream cheese flavor comes across. I hope they experiment more with it in the future.
Verdict? Frozen Cream Cheese excellence
Buy Again? yes! (gotta bring some home for Mrs. Dubba!)
