Today, I get to bring to you another first impression of the Talenti Gelato & Sorbetto; specifically their Vanilla Bean! Initially, I had wanted to try the Tahitian Vanilla Bean but by the time I got back to the store, they only had the regular Vanilla Bean. Since I do not have a car and only Frys ( also known as Krogers) had the flavor for 3.49, I took the rail ( public transportation) to the store and then scurried my patootie home ( well, as fast as the rail could) in 100 + degree weather so that the whole thing did not become mush. Good News: it was softer but not milk so all is well. So, let’s get into this impression, shall we ?
What’s The Deal: The first thing I noticed was just how creamy & smooth this gelato ( as all gelato) was. Now before we get into taste, I just have to say now that I am the Vanilla Princess -ahem-…in other words I love Vanilla Ice Cream. I love it here, I love it there, I love it anywhere but nowhere *ha*. Okay okay, but really if I go to Dairy Queen, I have to get Vanilla. If I go to Baskins & Robbins, I get Cookies & Cream but the base is Vanilla, of course. If I go to Graeters Ice Cream, then I also get the Cookies & Cream. Even going to the store, make it a French Vanilla, a Homemade Vanilla, a Vanilla Bean…I am a happy individual. So, when I tried Talenti’s gelato, I also had some Blue Bunny Vanilla Bean in my freezer that I had collected on a previous grocery shopping excursion.
Simply said, Talenti’s Vanilla Bean is quite a subtle treat; the taste of the vanilla base that is the ice cream with the beans is nice and simple. It’s a simple Vanilla Bean. I wouldn’t go to say that the gelato is exploding with exceptional flavor when looked at on a comparatively scale with all of the other makers of the Vanilla Bean flavor but the texture is exceptional.
Would I get it again ? Personally, I would not buy it again but only because Talenti has so many other unique flavors such as the Caramel Cookie Crunch & The Key Lime Pie that I would love to try next.
Until next time,
