I scream, you scream, we've all been screaming for ice cream — and, this February, our prayers are being answered once again. Victoria's annual Ice Cream Festival is back, taking place at three of the state's chocolateries and ice creameries: in the Yarra Valley, along the Great Ocean Road and on the Mornington Peninsula.

You may want to prepare the smelling salts, because each venue will be trotting out 12 new flavours a day between Wednesday, February 9–Sunday, February 20 — for 12 days. That's 144 unique flavours all up, including scoops like Aperol spritz, blueberry boba bubble tea, cinnamon scroll and French toast, plus black garlic and chocolate, dill pickle and salted brown butter pecan.

For $24, you can book into a tasting session that covers 12 of the day's flavours at once — or you can just rampage around the place like a deranged, hungry Pac-Man and try to taste 'em all from $5.20 a scoop.

What's more, each of the venues — in Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery in Yarra Glen, Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery in Bellbrae and Mornington Peninsula Chocolaterie and Ice creamery in Flinders — has lovely grounds for you to lay around in and enjoy. The view may well be lost on you as you slide into a sugar-induced happiness coma, but that's okay. They aren't inventing all those flavours for you to not try them.
