  1. This was very well written, I wish BU would do more articles about alumni that have become entrepreneurs. As someone who is in the middle of launching their own startup it’s inspiring to hear stories of those that actually made it.

  2. Awesome story! I lived in Buenos Aires as a kid and loved visiting the gelaterias with friends and family. No wonder I’ve always liked Talenti. Congrats, Josh.

    1. I sent my husband out to target or Walmart because that’s where I read online to find talenti gelatos
      He came home with 1 sorbet (meh) and a chocolate with cookies (delicious)only because they had not more than 2 flavours
      After reading the bio,I’ll b looking in Publix as well
      I just hope unilever will look into better distribution.
      l would love to try all
      BTW great commercials, almost every 15 minutes

  3. Nice article.I happened to taste Talenti gelato only a couple of years ago. It’s very interesting to know that a BU alum is the key person behind Talenti’s foundation and success. Also, it’s very impressive that a person’s idea to start a gelato making business has made him an entrepreneur now! We have a tried a few flavors and love the mango flavor:) if you haven’t, add it to your shopping list for the weekend now!

  4. Great article! I am certain that I have contributed at least $1M with all of the Talenti that I have purchased over the years. I am sure the next venture will be just as addictive.

  5. I LOVE TALENTI Gelato, and have two sitting in my refrigerator right now. Fun to know that a BU grad and a little piece of beautiful Argentina is behind it. Very nicely developed article. Thanks Josh for all of your hard work and the spark that inspired you to bring quality gelato to the U.S.

  6. So nice to hear that Talenti was invented by a BU alum! I love the brand and will continue to support it. Thank you Josh for the great work and thank you BU Today for this nice article.

  7. I love Talenti is my favorite, my exboyfriend introduced it to me and I have loved it since then, my favorite OMG , plus now that I found out founder is a BU alumni even more

  8. I love the article. I had the privilege of meeting and becoming friends with Josh and also working at the Talenti plant in Marietta,Ga The product is such an amazing item. Josh made sure that only the best ingredients was in each jar. My grandmother used to say when she cooked that her main ingredient was love. This is a true statement with Josh. Thank you Josh for the four great years I was able to work and learn from you.

  9. Talenti has always been a favorite of mine from my first taste! There are now so many fabulous flavors. Every flavor has a smooth “creaminess” with its own characteristics. There is a flavor in their line for every palette and every occasion. Also the containers are awesome for reusing! What’s not to love?!
