READER REVIEW: Bob's Review of Graeter's Caramel Truffle Gelato

After getting to sample all the new Graeter's gelato flavors at the Arnold Classic in March, Caramel Truffle and Hazelnut really struck my taste buds as the two best. Now that they are available in grocery stores I finally have access to picking this flavor up. Upon picking up the lid you can see the smooth light brown/yellow caramel surface with large chunks of truffle pieces that are embedded into the base of the pint. The overall taste of the base is very unique and very good for a gelato. While this is on the softer side, its overall richness/creaminess shines for a caramel flavor.


The truffles are as expected; absolutely divine in taste, melt in your mouth, and are packed with a great chocolate taste. If you know Graeter's, they do not short change you when it comes to mix-ins or the size of the mix-ins. The truffles are complete truffles, not shavings or halved truffles, but nearly you are getting one or two truffles in every single spoonful you take from the pint.


Graeter's did a fantastic job on this Caramel Truffle Gelato and I feel this is the best off their Gelato line.

  1. I had a chance to try this flavor today. I think Bob has it exactly right. I'm not a big fan of gelato. I greatly prefer premium ice cream. I was very surprised at the richness of this gelato. I prefer it over Talenti's version, and even over Graeter's own salted caramel premium ice cream.
