Messina Is Bringing Back 40 of Its Greatest Gelato Hits in Take-Home Tubs
Fingers crossed that Jon Snow, Robert Brownie Jnr and Fairy Bread all make a comeback.
In the almost two decades that Gelato Messina has been in business, over 4000 special flavours have made their way through its gelato cabinets around the country. Yes, that's a lot of frosty and creamy scoops. To celebrate some of these oldies but goodies, the chain brings a selection of these flavours back every now and then — and, sometimes, it busts out its entire top 40 greatest hits.
That's happening again between Monday, July 26–Sunday, August 1, which is when lucky Sydneysiders, Melburnians and Brisbanites will be able to treat themselves to an entire freezer-full of limited-edition gelato flavours. While, in the past, the greatest hits specials have been a buy-in-shop-only deal, the chain went with preordered tubs in 2020 — so no one had to worry about long queues and empty cabinets — and it's doing the same thing again this year.
Gelato fiends can preorder 500-millilitre tubs of the 40 flavours from Monday, July 26. You'll then need to pick them up from Sydney's Rosebery, Tramsheds, Bondi, Darlinghurst, Parramatta and Brighton Le Sands stores; Melbourne's Fitzroy an East Brunswick stores; and Brisbane's South Brisbane store between Friday, July 30–Sunday, August 1.
Individual tubs can be filled with just one flavour and will set you back $16, or you can get three for $45, six for $85, nine for $125 or — if you have the freezer space — 20 for $260.
Wondering which flavours will be available? This time around, Messina hasn't announced which faves are making a comeback just yet. But, you can likely expect the beloved Jon Snow (white chocolate gelato with dark chocolate mud cake and almond praline), Fairy Bread (toast and butter gelato with 100s & 1000s), Mango Pancake (mango gelato with vanilla cream and pancake crunch), Old Gregg (Baileys and butterscotch sauce) and Robert Brownie Jnr (milk chocolate gelato, chocolate brownie and chocolate fudge sauce) to return in tub form — and hopefully everything from super duper dulce de leche and pavlova to finger bun and Oreogasm, too, if the flavours available in previous years are any guide.
Gelato Messina's Greatest Hits will be available to preorder on Monday, July 26 with pick up between Friday, July 30–Sunday, August 1 from Sydney's Rosebery, Tramsheds, Bondi, Darlinghurst, Parramatta and Brighton Le Sands stores; Melbourne's Fitzroy an East Brunswick stores; and Brisbane's South Brisbane store.
