For my fellow Seattle area Talenti-holics: Lower Queen Anne had the usual basic flavors plus Sea Salt Caramel, Southern Butter Pecan, Caramel Cookie Crunch, Black Raspberry, Pistachio, Mint and Coconut - a much better selection than Safeway but not quite as good as Whole Food$.
I'm still trying to find Argentine Caramel, Simply Strawberry and German Chocolate Cake. Metropolitan Market had Black Cherry once but has been out since. They make up for it by carrying Steve's and Jeni's.
And I'm sitting here drooling over the east coast stuff we don't have. New Orleans? nooooo, none, zip, nada... That, alone is enough, really. But you can also add:
2nd street Creamery SoCo High Road Front Porch Phin & Phebe's Gifford's Salt and Straw is in Oregon but never makes it up here. Very little Blue Bell The nearby QFC has a small selection of Graeter's... But no Elena's Blueberry Pie (yet) Metropolitan Market carries some Jeni's (I've yet to make plunge) and some Steve's.
The grass is always greener on the other coast. ? But it gives me a good reason to look forward to visiting family out that way.
I really want to find Argentine Caramel and Simply Strawberry (especially the former). They are my Talenti Unicorns.
I've found only 2 of the 4 new flavors so far. Luckily they were the lovely Alphonso Mango and the gooey, rich, luscious Southern Butter Pecan (which has been available here for quite a while - thankfully).
There is a very regional component here. Even within a particular brand and distributor. QFC is cheaper, but the best selection is at Whole Foods (only a 7 minute walk away). I need to ask them why they don't carry the other 2 new flavors, (plus Black Cherry and Coffee Chocolate Chip) and see if they can remedy the situation. I'm also surprised they don't carry brands like Steve's, Jeni's, etc.
It's not like they're in the sticks somewhere. Just a block away construction has begun on Amazon's spiffy new 3 block campus with three 37 story towers and a 3 sphere biodome. I can see the first new crane from my window.
There is also a new twin-towered 41 story luxury condo building going up just a block from me that's up to the 5th story now. I think the ground floor retail level is ripe for a new ice creamery ...though rumors abound about the possibility of a new QFC or Trader Joe's going in. Now a QFC a block away with $2.79 sales would be mighty fine indeed.
