Ask a Brisbanite about their favourite ice cream, and they'll likely tell you about a treat that's only available for a brief period every year. That'd be the iconic strawberry sundaes served at the Ekka — or reason enough to brave the flu-riddled crowds if rides and showbags aren't quite your thing.

Lick! Ice Cream clearly feel the same end-of-August sundae-less pain as the bulk of the city's population, and while they can't offer up the Ekka exclusive all year round, they can provide the next best thing. Enter an idea as brilliant as it is tasty. After 11 years in operation, the dessert company is opening a flagship store in Graceville and making strawberry ice cream a permanent feature of their menu.

Come early November, everyone can head to Honour Avenue for Lick!'s cream of the ice cream crop — and for a two-for-one bonus on opening weekend, too. Other things will be on offer, of course, in a rotating range that will span 18 flavours and also includes sorbet, in case anyone gets sick of all things strawberry. The chances of that are slim, though.

For those tempted to try something other than their strawberry flavour, macadamia praline, Oreo cookie and rum and raisin certainly whet the appetite, as do the likes of the less commonly seen salted peanut and Redskin. And then there's a concoction that sounds so delicious that we can't quite think of a name for it. What do you call a housemade doughnut/waffle hybrid?

Find Lick! Ice Cream on Honour Avenue, Graceville from November 4, and enjoy the 2-for-1 deal from November 7. For more information, check out their website and Facebook page.
