Take home the cake this Chrissie with La Macelleria’s festive giveaway

As if enjoying an authentic gelato on a hot day isn’t sweet enough...

Since landing in Teneriffe back in 2014 all the way from the home of gelato, in Bologna, La Macelleria has sprinkled its silky gelato and sorbet around Brisbane, now with locations in West End, on Bowen Hills’ King Street, and in Coorparoo Square.

To celebrate the end of a wild year and share some buon Natale energy, the team at La Macelleria is offering a fabulous festive prize to one lucky licker: a gelato-filled panettone (that’s Italian Christmas cake for those who haven’t been lucky enough to try), dressed up in its Christmas best!

For your chance to win the panettone, all you have to do is head in, grab a scoop of gelato or sorbet (cup or cone?), make sure you’re following La Macelleria’s Insta and share a snap with the hashtag #lovelamacelleria—be sure to check your spelling on that one!

With the winner selected on Monday, December 14, you have plenty of warm weather ahead to give you an excuse to swing by for a scoop (or two)… Don’t fancy your chances or photography skills? La Macelleria’s gelato panettones (which feed around 10) can be ordered, and come in at $70.

Head here to learn more about their festive treats and custom gelato creations so you can skip the Christmas pud’ and serve up a cool dessert everyone will actually love!


Keeping The G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally collaborate with local businesses we love, like this one. To see how we can help you out and to learn more about our food-crazy audience, head here.
