Talenti Salted Peanut Caramel Gelato #33

[New for early 2015] If you go to the same grocery store on different days of the week, eventually you learn when they restock their freezer aisle, and I know very well that my work Stop & Shop restocks on Wednesdays. Now, considering that I saw a bunch of new stuff when I grabbed my lunch on Tuesday, is there any chance I'll find a few more new things today? Why, yes, I found this and I found....

Talenti Salted Peanut Caramel Gelato #33
salted peanut gelato with dry-roasted peanuts and a salted caramel swirl

first bite: mmmm, peanut brittle

second bite: whoa, yeah, this is kind of awesome.

The ingredients scared me a little but this one is just epic from the first bite. I'm not sure this one even needs a review. It's exactly what you want. Plenty of flavor. Great texture. Just a bit of salt to tie it all together without being overwhelming.

Holy cow I just found a giant peanut.

My word this is good. I think this is now my favorite Talenti flavor. I think this may be my new favorite peanut flavor actually. I'm just going to sit here and eat the entire pint if that's ok with you. It's just so good. No, it's perfect. I wouldn't change anything. The way the caramel sweetness comes across the peanut backdrop is just amazing. Exquisite. Excellent. My word I'm such a bad reviewer.

Must save some for tomorrow.

Buy This. Now. (You can thank me later)

On Second Scoop: I like this one so much that I didn't have the heart to finish the second half of the pint today. It's too good. It seemed wrong to inhale it. It's going to be hard to top this one.

Verdict?  AWESOME
Buy Again?  As often as possible

Is this a peanut butter flavor?

"peanut" flavor to be precise, but like I mentioned, it reminds me of peanut brittle with all the caramel floating around

I don't know...I'm just so over Salted Caramel. It's everywhere now, and so overdone.

@TTB: make an exception for this one. I agree with the SC hype, but here, it's just part of a much larger show.

This tastes EXACTLY like the inside of a Snickers. I love it. It's so simple, yet enjoyable.

@Zin: hahahahahaha, I was going to say they need to throw this in one of their gelato pops, it will taste just like a candy bar!

This is yummy. Dubba hit the nail on the head - peanut brittle.

I finally tried this flavor. I have to agree with Zin. My first thought was it tasted like a snickers ice cream bar. Made me wish I had some chocolate magic shell to go with it.

1/2 cup gives you 30% of your daily sat fat allowance! Who can eat just 1/2 cup? Talenti is like a drug dealer!

Dubba Scoops said...

@Jimbo: smaller spoon :)

also, talenti is easier on you then a super premium ice cream.

Took me til now to try, and I'm sorry I waited for as long as I did. It is now my 4th favorite Talenti, but given that the other three are seasonal or no longer available (Egg Nog, Peppermint Bark, Hazelnut) it's my favorite year-round Talenti. However, my thought process didn't go to Snickers or Brittle, but to DQ's Peanut Buster Parfait, and more specifically, the Buster Bars. Mixing this with some of that thick DQ like Hot Fudge would be insane.
