Messina's Greatest Hits
Jon Snow, Robert Brownie Jnr and Fairy Bread are all making a comeback.
In the 17 years that Gelato Messina has been in business, over 4000 special flavours have made their way through its 20 gelato cabinets around the country. To celebrate some of these oldies but goodies, Messina is dedicating an entire weekend to its top 40 greatest hits.
From July 27–28, lucky Sydneysiders will be able to treat themselves to an entire cabinet worth of limited-edition gelato flavours. The deal will only be available at the Rosebery store, where none of the classic flavours will be available. Instead, expect specials like the Just Like a Milkshake and Have a Gay Old Time.
You'll definitely get to taste the Jon Snow (white chocolate gelato with dark chocolate mud cake and almond praline), the Fairy Bread (toast and butter gelato with 100s & 1000s) and the Robert Brownie Jnr (milk chocolate gelato, chocolate brownie and chocolate fudge sauce). Also making the cut is red velvet cheesecake number and peanut butter gelato with chocolate brownie and dulce de leche.
Messina took suggestions for the whole 40-flavour lineup, which means that some of your own favourites might've made the list. Here's the full rundown — happy eating:
Just Like A Milkshake
Lady Of Winterfell
The Boss's Wife
Drop It Like White Choc
Sticky First Date
Robert Brownie Jr.
Have A Gay Old Time
Breakfast In Canberra
A Salt On The Senses
Chocolate Hazelnut Tiramisu
Gelato Messina's Greatest Hits will be available from July 27–28 at Sydney's Rosebery (58 Mentmore Avenue) store. Only the top 40 specials will be available from 11am until sold out — no classic flavours and no Deliveroo.
