READER REVIEW: Matthew's Review of Talenti's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Gelato


I woke up feeling like I got hit by a truck. I knew I had a lot of room in my macro intake for the day for a pint of gelato to cheer me up. On my way to work, I decided to stop by my local Kroger to see what I could find in the ice cream aisle. Note to self: don't go looking for ice cream first thing in the morning. The place was cleaned out from the night before. The only pints I had not tried, that I had any interest in, were Talenti Caribbean Coconut and Talenti Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I picked up the latter, as I only recently got into coconut flavor, and wanted to stick with something familiar.


The front of the clear pint showcases a nice chocolatey swirl, which gets my hopes up. Surely there has to be a decent amount of mix-ins in this pint.


I crack the top and spy swirl. No sign of refreeze, great! I dip in and taste the base. To be honest, it's not striking me as anything impressive. I continue my digging and finally come across a cookie dough piece. Here we go. The cookie dough piece is great. Nothing groundbreaking. But definitely on par with other cookie dough mix ins I've had in other premium pints. I work my way through the rest of the pint, and I was unfortunate in my search for mix ins. Definitely was unlucky in the amount of cookie dough pieces.


Overall, this pint was underwhelming. Meh base, not enough swirl, and while the cookie dough pieces were tasty, there weren't enough to keep me interested.
