Just when you thought you’ve had it all and what could possibly be THAT different with yet another ice cream. Welp, Gelato Messina sure showed me!
The run down: This company awesomely Australian and they couldn’t be more nice and down to earth. Declan one of the owners personally presented to us fellow food bloggers and writers (shout out to Amber and her guy Bronson at cheerupwithfood.com!). His marketing team was also awesome. Ok, ok, back to the food. Because food has gotten so commercialized, it’s really nice to see the company brings back the passion and the love for quality food, and you could really tell that love is put into everything. Ingredients are all made in house (except for two type of biscuits). They’ve got an army of staff back there. Flavors and textures are incredible! Tiramisu has all the textures of creamy, cakey lady fingers, and hint of alcoholiness (yes, I made up “alcoholiness”). How are the fruit sorbets so creamy? The salty sweet combination of salted coconut and mango blew my mind. Pistachio gelato? I can taste real pistachios! It is true that it is “So Wrong Its Right” with cream cheese, caramel gelato smashed with white chocolate potato chips and smothered in duck fat caramel. So many delicious flavors, but if I had to choose one, the winner of the day is salted caramel with white chocolate. I guess my tastes are changing – salty sweet is gaining favor in my world.
Gelato Messina is not only offering an amazingly unique spread of gelato flavors, but also on top of that, they offer beautifully constructed gelato cakes and coffee.
Conclusion: This is the place to be if you want unique, complex flavors made with the most fresh and natural ingredients with fantastic texture. I know it’s the place for me because it’s almost in my backyard!
