What's better than indulging in a sweet treat? Indulging in one that gives back — and that's exactly what you can do with this exciting new collaboration. Social enterprise Two Good Co. is teaming up with Gelato Messina on an exclusive, Australian-inspired dessert range, the proceeds of which will be donated to aid women and children facing domestic violence and homelessness.

From Monday, October 9, the Sydney-based food brands have launched a joint chocolate bar and a festive Christmas cracker, available nationally on the Two Good website and in-store at Messina outposts.

Then, from Saturday, November 25, a limited-edition gelato flavour to pair with the chocolate bar will also be available alongside a bunch of gelato cart pop-ups across the country. This particular dessert will aim to raise awareness of a 16-day global initiative called the 16 Days of Activism Campaign, whose mission is to eliminate gender-based violence.

"For this year's festive release, we wanted to create a truly immersive experience that enhances your holiday celebrations and leaves a lasting impact — for both our customers and our community," said Rob Caslick, Founder of Two Good Co.

The epic collaboration will feature three enticing desserts, including an indulgent milk chocolate bar crafted by Messina chocolatiers — featuring dark chocolate and wattleseed brownie pieces and sea salt flakes throughout — alongside a Christmas cracker containing a voucher for a free Messina scoop and a limited edition milk chocolate gelato flavour aptly named Two Good to Miss, which also features the additions of sea salt with dark chocolate and wattleseed brownie pieces.

The Two Good Foundation will power its missions to aid those in need, with 50 percent of the chocolate bar profits being reinvested into its core programs, while each Christmas cracker purchase will provide a much-needed meal to women and children in need.

Every scoop of the 'Two Good to Miss' flavour will also contribute to the mission, as each scoop purchased will provide a free serving to women's refuge shelters.

"It's not just about serving gelato; it's about serving love, support and hope to women and children in need. For every scoop sold, it's our way of wrapping them in love and letting them know they are not alone," says Messina's Siân Bishop. "[We want] to inspire our customers to engage in small acts of kindness during a time when some people need it most."

Plus, there will be the aforementioned gelato cart pop-ups, called Scoops for Good, serving the limited-time gelato at Charter Hall office towers throughout Australia, as well as any participating Charter Hall retailers.

But be sure to get in quick — the limited edition treats are only available online, in stores and at the pop-up gelato carts while stocks last.
