Ice cream.  Who doesn’t like it?  Ice cream has long been one of my favorite dessert items.  About 2 years ago, after continuously eyeing this product in the grocery store I finally decided to try it.  Hello, Talenti Gelato.  Gelato and ice cream are very similar as gelato is italian style ice cream.  The key difference between the two is the method of creation and not to mention the rich, potent flavors often found in Gelato.

Product
“Better ingredients make happy spoons.”

The ingredients in this product are very simple. Unlike many other frozen treats on the market, there are no artificial ingredients–no high fructose corn syrup. It is high in fat and cholesterol because it uses real ingredients!

Flavor
As the name suggests, this product tastes like coffee. The coffee flavor is strong enough to really taste it without it being overpowering. There is also no bitter aftertaste from the coffee. The chocolate chips add another dimension to the flavor and is a great complement.

Texture
This product has a very smooth, velvety texture. The chocolate chips are not too big or too small. Compared to ice cream it is significantly less crystalline and melts much faster once out of the freezer.

As previously mentioned, this product is made with good, simple ingredients. The biggest concerns with this product is the production method of the ingredients. This product is not non-GMO certified. The key ingredients of concern are the milk, sugar, cream, soybean oil, and soy lecithin. All of these ingredients can be made from genetically modified ingredients. Alternatively, none of the ingredients appear to be artificial in origin. This product would get 1 Globe if it was non-GMO certified!

This product is one quart, though their grocery store options are typically a pint.  The pint sizes are typically $5.99 while the quart is about $7.99 – $8.99 depending where you purchase it from.  I see this product either on sale, or with a coupon regularly, so don’t let price be a deterrent!  Given the quality of this product, I find you don’t eat as large a portion as you would with most other ice creams.  A small amount will satisfy your sweet tooth.
