It's never too cold for ice cream, right? Thankfully, that's certainly the case in Brisbane. Here, a new gelato place can open in the middle of winter and no one bats an eyelid. Where else but Queensland indeed.
Nom Nom Natural Gelato is the family-owned store in question, bringing 18 flavours of deliciousness to Oxford Street — and that's just the beginning. Those fond of sweet, frozen dairy treats best flock to Bulimba for the latest taste sensation — and if their menu is anything to go by, it's a trip worth making.
Combining Maleny dairy milk and cream with the best ingredients, the nomworthy range includes all the usual suspects. Think Belgium chocolate with or without orange or coffee, Madagascar vanilla bean plus optional salted caramel sauce, as well as fruity servings of blueberry and strawberry.
But it's the not-so-usual flavours that should get gelato lovers excited, courtesy of a few housemade blends. First, there's the pistachio, almond and cashew concoctions made with 100 percent real nut paste. Then there's the cheesecake, apple pie and gingerbread varieties. And don't forget fresh mint with chocolate chips, green tea and fresh lemon, banana and cinnamon, and coconut with shreds, too.
Gluten-free, lactose-free and vegetarian recipes are still to come, so those with dietary requirements can soon join in the fun. And for anyone in need of a caffeine fix with their sugar hit, Nom Nom Natural Gelato also boasts a variety of Abrisca cold presses. They're garnering nom noms in more ways than one.
