Cold weather be damned, because Gelato Messina is revisiting 40 of its absolute best flavours once again, in the second annual Greatest Hits freezer takeover.
After bringing the creme de la creme to its stores last July, the dessert legends have announced round two, with preorders kicking off on Thursday, May 21. And before you even ask; yes, Super Duper Dulce de Leche is in the mix.
So what’s on the full menu? Glad you asked.
There’s everything from the crowd-fave Fairy Bread through to the more tastebud-challenging Musk (musk stick gelato) and Mr. Potato Head (peanut butter gelato with white choc-covered potato chips). Hell, if you wanna go super-indulgent maybe cop yourself a 500ml pint tub with The Hat Trick (dulce de leche gelato, swirl, and cheesecake all smushed together) or the Oreogasm (peanut better gelato with Oreo custard and smashed-up Oreo bickies.)
This year’s Greatest Hits flavours also include a couple of faves from the Messina hivemind, including a tub-version of their cult-fave Mango Pancake, and the Messina’s Momofukup from the ode the gelato lords did to NYC’s Momofuku Milk Bar back in 2015.
Check out all the flavours to choose from below, which will be packed up in individual pint-sized tubs for maximum yums and no flavour bleeding, which is always a dangerous game to play with contrasting flavours, or to keep yr vegan mates stoked.
