They release up to six new flavors annually
Talenti already has 40 flavors of gelato and sorbetto in their dessert arsenal. However, every year they work to release as many as six new flavors into their repertoire. Those 40 options were first formed around classics -- for example, Argentina’s dulce de leche inspired the Sea Salt Caramel Gelato and Caramel Cookie Crunch Gelato. Classic Italian flavors, like pistachio and hazelnut, were also incorporated. And, of course, the American standbys, like butter pecan.
The research and development team still considers these same factors when narrowing down new flavor options -- plus, of course, market trends. The team focuses on making the best flavors, then narrows them to 25 (!) options. After lots of taste tasting, they choose three to six flavors to bring to market. This year, they’ve unveiled three new gelatos and a sorbetto: Cinnamon Peach Biscuit, Vanilla Chai, Vanilla Blueberry Crumble and a dairy-free Peanut Butter Fudge Sorbetto.
