Enjoy a Talenti Moment

Have you ever heard of this stuff, Talenti? My sister, Jamie, the Queen of Sweets that Taste Great, posted a photo on her Facebook awhile back. And it intrigued me. Then, I saw that it was on sale at my local Henry’s for a reasonable price, and I wondered.

Then, Talenti sent us a few flavors to try. And oh my.

At first I was skeptical that a pint would do much for our family of 8. But what we’ve found after tasting Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Double Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt Caramel, and Raspberry sorbets and gelatos, is that a little bit’ll do ya. The ingredients are all known substances, the flavors rich, and the quality high. I’m impressed to say the least.

I even went out and bought more at Henry’s before the sale ended!

Since I’m trying to limit the portions of the foods I’m eating, I really appreciate the rich flavors of this product. I can have a scoop (or two), not feel like I’m overdoing, but still have a delicious experience. It’s that moment where I’m rewarding healthy eating throughout the day with a little sweet treat after dinner. And it’s a sweet treat that I don’t feel guilty about.

  1. My favorite moment would be out on the screened porch after a marathon sprinkler session with the family!

  2. After dinner, on the porch!

  3. Keisha C. says:

    At the end of a long day, when everything is done, and I can relax!

  4. After the kiddos are in bed, hubs and I watch cable TV shows on DVD (free from the library!) and indulge in some frozen goodness. We love Talenti–chocolate for hubs, caramel-y goodness for me.

  5. After dinner when my son has gone to bed – time to relax!

  6. At the end of a failed naptime, when Mommy needs a little sugar buzz to get to dinner (and shakes are half-price at Steak’n’Shake). :) Just had some salted caramel gelato at a farmers’ market this week . . . YUM!

    • After supper is over, the toddler is asleep, mommy has had a shower and hubby is available for cuddling and TV time.

  7. Really – I love it anytime, but there is something about 3 pm on a summer afternoon, that calls for ice-cream.

  8. Hilary Richards says:

    When the kids are in bed and I can relax and enjoy a treat just for me!

  9. Actually, in the car! Sometimes it’s nice to have a frozen treat (think: shakes or malts) and go for a nice drive as a family. With a bunch of little ones, this is sometimes a welcomed peace. Often the youngest ones fall asleep, and my husband and I can talk while we enjoy our frozen treats and explore new areas of our town. :)

  10. On the front porch :)

  11. After the kids go to bed………such a nice way to relax!

  12. My favorite moment would be curled up on the couch after the babe has gone to bed, watching a good movie or reading a good book. Great way to unwind (which I tell myself is healthier for me to do than it would be to skip my frozen delectable right before bed…cuz every mom needs an unwind moment…especially one that is delectable…naturally).

  13. after the kids are tucked into bed!

  14. After the kids are in bed while watching a fun movie. :)

  15. We like to indulge on Sundays at our house. Sunday afternoon when it’s hot outside and we’re enjoying the day off from “normal” life is the perfect moment here. Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. Alizabeth says:

    Ya know those days when kids are fighting, the house looks as if it exploded, Mt. Laundry is sky high, the to-do is endless…perfect time to toss a blanket on the floor (after you shove the toys to the side) gather your kiddos around you (all 6!) and share some cold sweet delicious-ness! Forgetting everything for just a moment in time…

  17. Annicedda says:

    I love frozen treats all year long but especially in the summer on a hot night after dinner.

  28. As a special treat, our family loves to make an ice cream run to the grocery store after dinner and let our 4-year-old pick out whatever flavor she wants. So many options! And so much joy and wonderment in her little eyes! (And much more economical than a trip to an ice cream store!)

  29. My favorite time to eat a cool treat is in the evening right after my kiddos are in bed.

  117. After the kids are in bed and my hubby & I are having quiet time on the couch!

  118. Ooooh- Talenti! It NEVER goes on sale here, so we save it for special occasions. But regular ice cream? There’s never a bad time for that! (Except maybe breakfast, but don’t think I haven’t been tempted)

  128. Oooh, I love to eat frozen desserts in the heat of summer…after the pool!

  129. Frozen treats really *are* a treat for me… so I enjoy them on especially hot days, or on days when I really NEED a pick-me-up.

  130. When my kids are asleep. That way, I don’t have to share.

  131. Ice Cream is for any moment. I eat it all year round and Talenti has become my favorite over Ben & Jerry’s. I have tried a few of the flavors and my all time favorite has got to be the Caramel Sea Salt and a close runner up is Coconut although, I can’t find it here in my grocery stores.

  132. I just tried the Roman Raspberry and I LOVE it! I like to eat it when my kids are in bed so I don’t have to share!!!!

  135. After the kiddos are in bed and I have 5 minutes for me!

  136. After dinner — for sure! Or in the afternoon — after a particular stressful homeschooling day! Or with my sister — who introduced this amazing product to me!

  137. Sunday, early evening as the weekend winds down…..a little treat for the 2 of us.

  138. It might sound strange, but having grown up in a cold climate, the winter is my favorite time to eat ice cream! There is something comforting about being bundled up in a sweater or warm coat all snug and cozy eating ice cream… especially when it is accompanied by a cup of coffee. But I will NEVER turn down a frozen treat!

  139. When my hubby gets home from work and its just the two of us. Usually around midnight. But really I will eat icecream just about anytime!

  140. After a long day at work and getting the baby to sleep and finally relaxing!

  141. I LOVE THIS STUFF! Not only is it good, it’s gluten-free! We love ice cream all the time. Especially when the kids are napping ;)
