8 New Talenti Flavors for 2015!

You read that headline right, there are seven new flavors coming to the Talenti line up this year. That's just crazy (in a good way ofcourse). See, it all started with a twitter tip from John.

Talenti flavor #35 : Oatmeal Raisin Cookie gelato

After John sent us a photo of his discovery, I did a little digging. Seeing as he found flavor #35, I had hoped to figure out flavors 31-34, but instead, yeah, I found flavors 31 through 37.

  #31 Raspberry Cheesecake Gelato - test marketed at the end of last year (Nick's review)
  #32 Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Gelato - ha, called it! Nick's review here
  #33 Salted Peanut Caramel Gelato - it's epic! my review here
  #34 Coffee Toffee Gelato - Nick's review here
  #35 Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Gelato - my review here
  #36 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Gelato - Nick called it! my review here
  #37 Tiramisu Gelato - no mix-ins unfortunately my review here

Now it's just my opinion, but this list tells me that Talenti is very serious about stealing market share from everyone. So many companies want a piece of the gelato pie nowadays, but instead of playing it safe, Talenti comes out swinging with a wide range of flavors including taking a shot right back at classic ice cream with a cookie dough flavor. As long as they maintain quality, this should be an awesome year for them.

Big thanks to John for the info. Keep those tips and pictures coming everyone!

And this makes 8: Alana sent in pictures of the new Target exclusive that Nick and I have heard about but have yet to find. Coconut Chocolate Chip doesn't have a number and I assume it's their usual coconut flavor but with their fantastic chocolate flakes mixed in. I guess hazelnut is out of job! Thanks again for the pictures!

My pleasure, glad I could contribute something to the junk food world for a change. Having said that ... Woohoo! My goodness... Never expected all of this. And there doesn't appear to be a single dud in the group. Going back & forth between which I'd love to get my hands on first. Can't wait for the reviews to start trickling in. Awesome work!

@ John R,

Thank you (and Dubba) for sharing this. I am so happy to see the Oatmeal Raisen one! Have desperately missed Oatmeal Chunk by B&J's so this will be a good replacement.

More and more I am moving away from B&J's and choosing Talenti.

These look awesome!! Especially can't wait to try oatmeal cookie and raspberry cheesecake!

I really want to try that Oatmeal Rasin one. That just sounds good.

I found the Salted Caramel Peanut, Tiramisu, & Hazelnut Chocolate Chip at Giant.

They had a spot for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough but were either out or didn't get any in at that time.

When you can't find a flavor, call the nearest store/market near you and see if they can order it. That usually works.

Tried the oatmeal raisin. Very bold flavor. But I wish the cookies were larger. It was just oats in a puddle of rumlike gelato with raisins.
Chocolate chip cookie dough was awful. Tastes like artificial cookie dough flavor. And no mix ins.

I was also disappointed with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. It tasted like a generic Cookie Dough that you could get for much cheaper.

My favorite so far is The Salted Caramel Peanut & Tiramisu.

Hi again. I'm the one who disliked chocolate chip cookie dough and was not too impressed with oatmeal raisin cookie.
Just tried salted peanut caramel. I love it.

Tried Southern Butter Pecan found at Walmart. .fabulous. .best ever. Have gone back 4 times in one month can't get enough.

Salted Peanut Caramel is great!! My personal FAVORITE is Hazelnut which is currently an exclusive at Target. Hoping it goes everywhere since I've seen Hazelnut Chocolate Chip but can't eat chocolate. Gotta keep the original!!

Charlotte said...

Hazelnut has been replaced by Coconut Chocolate Chip as the new Target exclusive.

Dubba Scoops said...

Sorry, I should have updated the post when TIB showed the new exclusive, I will fix!

Thanks for the shout out! I tried the Coconut Chocolate Chip last night and I have to say I am a bit disappointed. This one had high potential because 1) Caribbean Coconut is in my top five Talenti flavors, 2) I love the texture of the chocolate flakes in flavors like Black Raspberry and Banana Chocolate Swirl, and 3) I love me a Coco-Choco combo like a Mounds bar. But this one isn't going to be one of my favorites. The base tastes like it might be less sweet than the Caribbean Coconut and the chocolate flakes surprisingly didn't add as much joy as I expected (maybe because the texture of the Caribbean Coconut is already so great). But everyone should try for themselves. I will say that the super-sweet Target Hazelnut was also in my top five Talenti flavors and so I had high hopes for the Hazelnut Chocolate Chip and didn't like that as much either, even though I know it got rave reviews from Nick...

Could you please make a salted Caramel walnut hard shell chocolate covered pint size??
Pretty please. I know that will kick it also. Love breaking through the hard chocolate because I know what's behind it will be good.

Cassandra Parks Stewart said...
