Gelato Messina Is Now Dishing Up Single-Serve Cookie Pies in Stores Twice a Week
If you liked the gelato chain's large bake-at-home cookie pies, you'll love its new single-serve versions.
Gelato Messina first introduced its cookie pies to the world in 2020, and tastebuds across Australia thanked them. Then, it kept bringing the OTT dessert back when we all needed an extra dose of sweetness across the year. In fact, the dessert fiends have been serving them up for more than 12 months now.
Messina celebrated that one-year milestone back in April; however, it isn't done with cookie pies yet. The chain has proven that a few times already over the past couple of months. And, it's committing to the concept in a big way in its stores going forward. Melburnians and Brisbanites, get ready to head into the Fitzroy and South Brisbane venues, then walk out with a single-serve cookie pie.
Yes, this cookie pie really is just for one person — and not just because you're not willing to share. The smaller-sized desserts come ready to eat as well. They're also topped with a scoop of gelato, because of course they are.
Hang on, cookie pie? Yes, it's a pie, but a pie made of cookie dough. If you're new to the concept, that's all you really need to know.
To pick up one of these single-serve desserts, you'll need to head to the Fitzroy and South Brisbane stores from 6pm on Monday and Tuesday evenings. That's the only time they're available, so marking your calendars is perfectly sensible. Don't worry about pre-ordering, though, as that isn't required. Expect to pay $12 with a scoop, or $10 if somehow you don't want gelato on top.
And if you're a Sydneysider reading this, the pies were trialled at Rosebery pre-lockdown, but are on hold while the city is under stay-at-home conditions.
