Messina's Next Mouth-Watering Creation Is a Gelato Version of Italy's Cremino Dessert
It's inspired by the chocolate from Piedmont in the country's north, and features salted caramel gelato, gianduia fudge, fresh meringue and amaretti biscuits.
Spending more time at home is much easier to stomach with a hefty rage of desserts on hand, or at least that seems to be Gelato Messina's pandemic motto. Over the past few months, the gelato fiends have served up plenty of tasty specials, including cookie pies in choc chip, red velvet, choc-hazelnut, and peanut butter and jelly varieties; 40 of its best flavours; and full tubs of both Iced VoVo gelato and Messina's own take on the classic Viennetta ice cream cake. This past week, it even whipped up a batch of sticky lamington-scroll hybrids.
Next up (because this is a weekly occurrence, so it seems): Messina's version of Italy's famed cremino dessert. It's recreated with gelato, naturally. And it's another of Messina's limited releases, with tubs of the eye-catching creation available at all its stores for a very short period.
Wondering what exactly Messina's cremino entails? It combines salted caramel gelato, gianduia fudge, fresh meringue and amaretti biscuits, when adds a layer of freshly piped and torched meringue on top. And if you haven't come across the cremino before, it's a chocolate from Piedmont in the country's north, it dates back to the 19th century and it's made up of three layers, with gianduia chocolate featuring heavily.
The latest release in Messina's new 'Hot Tub' series, the cremino gelato can only be ordered online on Monday, August 24, with a one-litre tub setting you back $30. You can then go into your chosen Messina store to pick up your tub between Friday, August 28–Sunday, August 30.
