Talenti introduces new gelato flavor, eco-friendly lids
DALLAS — Talenti has expanded its lineup of gelato flavors and has updated its product packaging with recyclable screw–on lids for all flavors.
Talenti said that its gelato lineup now includes sea salt caramel, which features Argentine caramel (dulce de leche) exclusively made for the brand; Fleur De Sel, prized sea salt from France; and tiny chocolate-covered sea salt caramel truffles mixed in with every spoonful.
In addition to launching a new flavor, Talenti also has updated the packaging of its products by implementing eco-friendly, recyclable high-density polyethylene (#2 HDPE) lids for all its flavors. The screw-on lids were created for Talenti’s matching polyethylene terephthalate (PET) clear containers.
Consumers can find the sea salt caramel flavor and other Talenti products at major retailers nationwide, including H-E-B, Kroger and Whole Foods, at a suggested retail price range from $4.99 to $5.99.
