MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Without a doubt, what makes the holidays special is the taste of tradition. This holiday season, Talenti® Gelato & Sorbetto captures the holiday spirit in a pint with a hint of tradition in its newest holiday flavor, Peppermint Bark gelato.

Available nationally for a limited time only, Peppermint Bark combines deliciously crunchy morsels of semisweet Belgian Callebaut chocolate with a rich, creamy peppermint gelato for the ultimate seasonal treat.

Back by popular demand and for a limited time only, Talenti is also re-introducing its festive Old World Eggnog, a sumptuous gelato made with fresh egg yolks, pure vanilla extract, fragrant nutmeg and no alcohol for a family-friendly treat. 

"This season, we wanted to create a memorable gelato that would instantly evoke holiday cheer with just one bite," said Josh Hochschuler, founder of Talenti Gelato & Sorbetto. "Our new Peppermint Bark does the trick with its winning blend of classic peppermint and decadent chocolate. And as with all Talenti flavors, it's crafted with great care, using the best ingredients we can find. We hope our fans will enjoy it as much as we do."

And be sure to save lots of room for dessert, because there's much more that Talenti can bring to the holiday table. Are you a fan of candied apples? Try topping off your apple pie or crumble with lush Sea Salt Caramel. Add another level of decadence to timeless classics by topping your favorite pumpkin pie with a scoop of Tahitian Vanilla Bean, or marrying pecan pie and Double Dark Chocolate for an extra rich sweet treat. Who says you have to choose just one perfect pairing? This is the season of indulgence and the possibilities are endless.

With about 30% less fat than regular ice cream, Talenti is one delicious treat that won't challenge your New Year's resolution. And, of course, Talenti upholds its commitment to using only the finest ingredients – that means fresh milk free of growth hormones, extra fine pure cane sugar, real vanilla beans, premium chocolate and much more.

Consumers will find Peppermint Bark and Old World Eggnog, along with other Talenti gelato and sorbetto flavors, in major food retailers nationwide from November 11 through December 31, at a suggested retail price of $4.99-$5.99.
