Gelato Messina Is Dropping Its Own Mint Slice Biscuits for Father's Day (or Your Own Snacks)

These minty treats aren't stuffed with gelato, sadly, but your dad will still want to devour a 12-pack.

Food is usually the gift you give when you can't think of anything else. Come on, you know it's true. That said, anyone getting their dad Gelato Messina's latest special Father's Day creation can't be accused of that. Actually, anyone who buys it for their dad instead of just nabbing it for themselves deserves to be the family favourite.

As it did last year — and for the past few years for Mother's Day, too — chocolates are on the brand's Father's Day menu in 2022. Chocolate biscuits, to be exact. Are mint slice biscuits a staple of your parents' pantry? Do they make you feel nostalgic for that exact reason? Well, now you can get your daad the Messina version.

The gelato chain does love taking other beloved desserts and giving them its own spin; see also: honey joys, Bounty and Chokito bars, Iced VoVos, Viennetta and Golden Gaytimes, just to name a few.

Messina's minty biscuits, as these bikkies are called, come in 12 packs, and feature chocolate sablé biscuits with a soft mint centre that are then covered in 65-percent single-origin Messina dark chocolate.

They're being made at the brand's Rosebery headquarters, and you can only pick them up online, for $25 a box plus shipping, from  9am, Monday, August 22. Then, they'll be sent by Monday, August 29. If you really are ordering them for your dad and yours come early, try not to eat them, obviously.

Gelato Messina's minty biscuits will be available to order from 9am, Monday, August 22.
