Talenti Obsession

Hello all,

Recently I have been seeing Talenti’s Gelato everywhere……so I read the ingredients. I was so happy that it contained ingredients that I can identify. I really TRY to stay away from foods with chemical addditives. Now back to this GELATOOOOOO…..can you hear me singing in true happiness. I must say I am truly obsessed and need a restraining order when it comes to Talenti’s Gelato…lol. They have such an amazing variety, how is a woman to decide which to try first……This was a true dilemma. Finally, after much contemplating and shivering a decision was reached………… and the winner was…….Southern Pecan since it’s one of my favorite flavors…..and for the kids I thought I would surprise them with Caramel Cookie Crunch.

All I have to say is that these were Very Good Choices.

My first spoonful of the Southern Butter Pecan…….transported me back to my childhood. This reminded me of what Butter Pecan Ice Cream used to taste like. I love this Gelato flavor it’s perfection.

Caramel Cookie Crunch- this is excellent and is now highly requested in this household. I get text messages reminding me to put it on the grocery list. Followed by text messages reminding me not to forget it while I am grocery shopping….lol.

So now we’re officially addicted so the only solution was to broaden our horizon and try more flavors.

So here’s what happened/what we have tried so far…..

Double Dark Chocolate: This was pretty good….not a must have.

Coffee Chocolate Chip: Love it!!!

Carribean Coconut: Amazing you’re transported to the Carribean.

Chocolate Chip : Very Good.

Banana Chocolate Swirl: So good the perfect banana and chocolate blend.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup: This was good but would love more of that traditional peanut butter cup taste.

Alphonso Mango: Disappointing

Carmel Apple Pie: This is AMAZING. It taste like your eating apple pie with a scoop of Vanilla Ice cream on top.

Fudge Brownie: Very decedent….A chocoholic’s dream come true.

Belgium Milk Chocolate: Simply divine

I will update my list as we try new flavors. One thing I love about this Gelato is that 2 tablespoons really satisfies your sweet craving. It’s such a well made product with identifiable ingredients. That’s my take on it. If you have given Talenti a try what did you think of it and will a restraining order be needed to resist, it’s goodness….lol????

Until Next Time,

Neapolitan Cookies & Ice Cream Super Quick & Easy Sweet Treat

This is a great dessert option when you just don’t have time to bake or simply are just not in the baking mood.  This sweet treat is perfect for the kids to make themselves.  All you need are store bought cookies of your choice.  Soft or cookies with a crunch will work perfectly.  For this treat I went with Whole Foods Fresh Baked Cookies.  They now sell a variety pack of 20 which contains 5 of each of the following sugar, oatmeal, chocolate with chocolate chips and chocolate chip for $9.99.  That is a great deal for Whole Foods.

To assemble I cut a sugar cookie and chocolate with chocolate chips in half and put a tablespoon of strawberry ice cream in between( you could of course opt for Frozen Yogurt as well) and came up with this delicious treat………………

For a busy mom this is perfect.  It’s quick and the kids love it.  That is what I call a win-win.

Enjoy & Until Next Time,

Sewloveable
