    The weather is warming up in New South Wales and summer is just around the corner. Cold foods are perfect to cool down from the heat and the ice cream from Gelato Messina lived up to its reputation as the best gelato in Australia.


    With traditional ice cream flavours like salted caramel, hazelnut, tiramisu, and sorbets for the fruit lovers, all made using fresh ingredients; there is something for everyone.

    Every week, Messina has 6 unique ice cream flavours. Some of this weeks specials included sweet cherry pie, strawberry balsamic, return of the mac, red velvet and leaf leaf bang bang. The names are almost as weird and wacky as the flavours but proved to be a treat for anyone’s tastebuds.


    Food always seems like a good idea to my friends and I, especially after a long lecture. Embracing the sunshine, we indulged a few scoops from our favourite ice cream place in Sydney, Messina.

    None of us were game enough to try the strawberry balsamic so between us, we opted for the red velvet (cream cheese gelato with red velvet cake), return of the mac (macadamia and milk chocolate gelato with 
    white chocolate and macadamia cookies), leaf leaf bang bang (mango and coconut sorbet with pandan jelly) and dulce de leche (Argentinean caramel gelato).  All choices were deliciously mouth watering and we had absolutely no regrets as we devoured the ice cream before it melted.


    There are 4 Gelato Messina stores across New South Wales inSurry Hills, Darlinghurst, The Star (Pyrmont) and Bondi.
