Talenti Peanut Butter Crunch Gelato is part of the Talenti Chef’s Collection, which features chef-inspired flavors from around the world. This one is a layered dessert inspired by Chef Avishar Barua’s ‘Buckeye Bon Bons’ dessert. The layers consist of peanut butter gelato, graham cracker pieces, brown butter sugar sauce, vanilla gelato, and a layer of chocolate peanut butter cups. What a mouthful!
Based on that scrumptious-sounding description, we had to buy some Talenti Peanut Butter Crunch Gelato and see what it was all about. You will definitely want to keep reading, because we have an interesting review for you today that is complete with real photos and honest opinions of this gelato flavor!
Talenti Peanut Butter Crunch Gelato Review
For starters, the container itself looks exactly like the promotional photos and is just as tricky to get into as usual. If you have no idea what what that last part means, search ‘how to get the lid off Talenti’ on YouTube. It is worth the effort with delicious gelato waiting for you inside 😉
Here is what all the layers look like once you spoon it out into a bowl. Check out that sauce and the little chocolate peanut butter cups!
There is definitely an explosion of different flavors and textures from the first bite, including cool, creamy gelato and the slight crunch of frozen peanut butter cups. The brown butter sugar sauce adds a smooth, caramel-like flavor that one of our reviewers delared to be her favorite part of the dessert. Talenti Peanut Butter Crunch Gelato has some great elements, especially the sauce, the mini chocolate peanut butter cups, and the creamy peanut butter gelato, that were mentioned in our reviewers’ comments.
The main criticisms were the lack of noticeable graham cracker pieces. None of us could see or detect graham cracker in this, yet it is listed in the description. The added crunch would have further elevated the taste experience, so we kept looking for them.
The other thing worth mentioning is that some people commented that Talenti Peanut Butter Crunch Gelato has a coconut oil aftertaste. For one reviewer, it was faint and did not affect her enjoyment of the gelato, but another person said that it was much stronger and kept building with every bite until it was all they could taste. The rest of us did not have this issue at all, so our advice is to consider that this may not be the Talenti flavor for you if you are not a fan of coconut oil and happen to experience the aftertaste effect that two of our reviewers had.
If you love peanut butter, Talenti Peanut Butter Crunch Gelato is a must-try. Those mini chocolate peanut butter cups mixed with peanut butter flavored gelato and a caramel-like sauce create a flavor and texture experience that you will surely enjoy!
