Layers: Vanilla Fudge Cookie
Sometimes you don’t want to have to choose between chocolate or vanilla and with this pint you don’t have to. It features both chocolate and vanilla gelato, with layers of chocolate cookie crumbs, fudge, and chocolate waffle cone bits for extra texture. It’s essentially a pre-made sundae in a jar — all it is missing is the cherry on top.
Organic Brown Butter Caramel
This genius flavor is just as advertised: buttery and sweet, but not cloying. The brown butter flavor really shines among the notes of burnt sugar, and the texture is velvety and soft — as all gelatos should be. The addition of brown butter caramel swirls is appreciated and dispersed evenly, making this a very solid caramel flavored ice cream.
Kind Frozen Plant Based Creamy Frozen Dessert
KIND is known for its nut and energy barssome of which are veganbut the company has branched out into the dessert world with a new line of vegan ice cream.

With Over 40 Flavors To Choose From There’s Something For Everyone
It seems like Talenti has every flavor of gelato under the sun. The gelato company — known for its ridiculously reusable containers — began when founder Josh Hochschuler fell in love with the creamy dessert in Buenos Aires. He loved it so much, in fact, that he completed an apprenticeship at a heladeria in the Argentinian capital before launching his company stateside.
Today, there are 45 flavors in regular rotation: Some are fruity and robust, like the Roman Raspberry sorbetto. Others take inspiration from pies — pumpkin and Key lime, to be exact. There are seasonal classics too, like almond butter and honey, peppermint bark, and caramel apple pie. Unfortunately, some flavors will be excluded from this list because they weren’t in season or I was unable to get access to them. Other flavors have been removed after being retired. Even so, there’s an abundance of gelato to choose from.
Whether you like chocolate or vanilla, peanut butter or caramel, there seems to be something for everyone. I ate through all the flavors of Talenti I could get my hands on and here is how they stack up from worst to best.
Dairy Free Sorbetto Cold Brew Coffee
If youve ever cracked into a can of Japanese coffee, then know that this gelato tastes just like that — meaning it is strong in its coffee flavor, lightly sweet, yet smooth and milky . It basically tastes like frozen cold brew, and that is a very good thing — especially if you are embracing a plant-based diet.

Layers: Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake
Talenti has nailed cheesecake ice cream. It is typically a flavor that is hard to make because it is is so often overly sugary without the tang that makes cheesecake… cheesecake. But here, the cream cheese flavor is very present the cherries add a nice, tart contrast and the graham crackers and cookie pieces gave a welcome crunch. If you love a classic New York cheesecake with cherry topping, give this flavor a go.
Layers: Peanut Butter Vanilla Fudge
This is for all the peanut butter enthusiasts out there. Layers of peanut butter and vanilla gelato are divided by hot fudge sauce, miniature peanut butter cups , and peanut butter cookies. I really appreciate the addition of vanilla ice cream it prevents the entire affair from being too peanut butter-y. Truly, this was a win.

Talenti Core Gelato
Dairy Free Sorbetto Pb Fudge
I truly cant believe this is dairy-free and vegan. This gelato is so decadent, with a perfectly creamy consistency. The fudge ripple is thick and generous, a perfect pairing alongside the thick peanut butter flavor. If youre a fan of peanut butter cups then you have to try this flavor — regardless of if youre vegan or not.

Layers: Salted Caramel Truffle
Among the sea of caramel flavored gelatos — and really all the gelato flavors Talenti has — this one reigned supreme. It has two layers of rich, salty-and-sweet caramel gelato, made better with the addition of chocolate cookies, dulce de leche, and a floor of chocolate caramel truffles that I would truly devour on their own. I refuse to ever share this flavor. Go get your own.

Layers: Black Raspberry Vanilla Parfait
There are two flavors of gelato in this container — vanilla and black raspberry — and though this flavor is called black raspberry vanilla parfait, there is also a layer of blueberry sauce that adds a fruity kick. And since it has parfait in the name, that means you can eat it for breakfast, right?

Layers: Mint Fudge Cookie
If I were the type of person to stockpile thin mint cookies in the freezer and ration them out throughout the year, I could see why this flavor would be appealing. The fudge is a really nice addition — creamy, sweet, indulgent — while the cookie layers adds some welcome crunch. Again, mint isnt really my jam, so I wasnt crazy about this, but if you love mint, youll probably go nuts over this. And Id be happy for you.

Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip
Berries, cream, and chocolate are a sundae combo made in heaven, and this gelato is no exception. Its refreshing, fruity, and tart from the raspberries but is balanced out nicely by the bittersweet chocolate chips. If youre looking for an ice cream that satisfies your cravings for both fruit and chocolate, this is it.
Layers: Dark Chocolate Cherry
My editor and I unanimously decided to call this flavor the grandma flavor because it definitely tastes like something a grandma would like — like a pint of boozy cherry cordial. Thats because this flavor is laced with vermouth and then layered with fudge, a cherry sauce, and chocolate truffles. Unfortunately, the cherry and chocolate don’t quite worth together this time and it actually tastes too boozy for my liking.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
This was totally fine, but the fudge felt thin and the pebbles of cookie dough barely registered. Also, of all the flavors on this list, this received the lowest rating on Talentis website, with a paltry 2.7 out of 5, with lots of complaints about how little cookie dough is included. Take note, Talenti overlords. The people demand more cookie dough!
