Nutcracker Ice Cream Giveaway
Gelato joint Piccolina has created three new flavours inspired by the Australian Ballet's latest production of 'The Nutcracker' — and you can try them for free.
The Australian Ballet is bringing its production of The Nutcracker to town this month, but it's not the only one getting into the spirit of the tale's famed fictional Land of Sweets. Much-loved gelato joint Piccolina has pulled inspiration from the classic story to whip up three limited-edition flavours, available all through The Nutcracker's local run. And you'll be able to try them for free.
On offer at Piccolina's Collingwood store from September 17–28, you'll find the Sugar Plum Fairy, featuring rich crema gelato with plum and raspberry coulis and a silver leaf crown; a spiced apple and gingerbread fusion dubbed Clara and the Nutcracker; and The Land of Sweets, blending white chocolate gelato with strawberry boba, torched meringue and white chocolate-covered freeze-dried strawberries.
What's more, you can try them out on the house on Friday, September 13, ahead of the show's launch. The Collingwood store will be dishing up free scoops of all three flavours for one hour, from 6.30–7.30pm.
If you can't get to Collingwood, the Land of Sweets will also be available as a choc top, which you can grab from the Arts Centre Melbourne's State Theatre while the production's on.
