Aqua S Is Popping Up in Brisbane and Handing Out Free Ice Creams

Read while you're hauling ass to Wintergarden.

Ice cream fans of Brisbane: whatever you're doing between 11am and 3pm today, you'd best make a visit to the Wintergarden part of your plans. For one day only, the inner-city shopping centre will play host to epic combinations of flavoured soft serve topped with everything from fairy floss to popcorn to toasted marshmallows. Yep, Aqua S popping up in the centre — and they're handing out free sweet treats to mark the occasion.

We'll let that sink in for a minute, because scoring a free ice cream as delectable as this (and as Instagrammable) isn't the kind of thing that happens every day. And if you haven't visited Aqua S in Sydney and Melbourne — and therefore don't know why you should be salivating at the thought of it, or why there's usually a line way out the door at their stores — then let us enlighten you.

Aqua S keeps things simple but scrumptious, with sea salt-flavoured, bright aqua-coloured frozen confectionery inspired by the famous ice creams of Okinawa their staple offering. They also serve up two other varieties each fortnight from a rotating range. Down south, strawberry and maple syrup are the current choices, with rose and English breakfast tea flavours available before that. And if that's not enough, why not add a few of the aforementioned toppings?

We know, we know — you're headed out the door right now to treat yo'self to this frosty goodness, and all without spending a cent for such a delicious pleasure. The pop-up is part of the Wintergarden's Shop the City event, which showcases everything on offer within the centre's walls. Here's hoping it's the first step towards Aqua S bringing their creative creations to Brissie on a more regular, or even permanent basis.

Grab a free Aqua S ice cream in the Wintergarden, Queen Street, Brisbane, between 11am to 3pm on September 1. Visit the Shop the City website for more information.
