MINNEAPOLIS, March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Talenti® Gelato & Sorbetto — the best-selling gelato in the United States* — is unveiling six new flavors for 2016. Beginning this month, the new varieties will appear in grocery store freezers and include delicious, hand-crafted flavors just in time for the warmer spring and summer months:

  • Chocolate Sorbetto: No milk? No problem. A sophisticated cocoa sorbetto that delivers a smooth, simple and rich chocolate taste.

  • Key Lime Pie Gelato: Refreshing key lime gelato with a textured graham swirl and graham cracker pieces.
  • Peanut Butter Pretzel Gelato: Peanut butter gelato with a peanut butter ripple and chocolatey peanutty crunchy pretzel balls.
  • Vanilla Caramel Swirl Gelato: Classic vanilla bean gelato with a generous swirl of decadent Talenti dulce de leche.
  • Wild Blackberry Gelato: An elegant blackberry gelato with a smooth blackberry swirl.
Talenti® Gelato & Sorbetto unveils six new flavors for 2016 including Chocolate Sorbetto, Coconut Almond Chocolate Gelato, Key Lime Pie Gelato, Peanut Butter Pretzel Gelato, Vanilla Caramel Swirl Gelato and Wild Blackberry Gelato.

"We're always finding ways to innovate our flavor lineup, and we're really proud of these inventive twists and fresh flavor combinations," said Josh Hochschuler, founder of Talenti. "This year's flavors are made with real ingredients you can see — like coconut shreds, layers of graham crackers and ribbons of peanut butter — and we're excited for our fans to discover these latest creations."

Talenti is committed to using only the good stuff when creating their multitude of sorbetto and gelato flavors. Farm-fresh milk and fine, pure cane sugar are blended with ingredients sourced from around the globe, and locally, whenever possible. With this, the company uses artisanal cooking methods designed to create robust flavor profiles and experiences. The end result is scooped into the signature Talenti clear, recyclable, resealable and BPA-free containers. Sorbetto options are also part of the ever-evolving product line.

The newest flavors will debut at this year's Natural Products Expo West show in Anaheim, Calif. Consumers can find the new Talenti flavors at major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99-$5.99.
