Messina is bringing back its greatest scoops for one week only!

Over 4000 specials, cut down to the best 40.

Gelato Messina has been around for over 18 years, and in that time has scooped up over 4000 different specials. From humble beginnings in Sydney’s Darlinghurst to a brand that is much-loved across the country (we’re so lucky to be based right near Fish Lane’s mega gelatorium), Messina has served some pretty epic flavours over the years.

After getting a run last year in Melbourne and Sydney stores, Brissy is now getting a taste of the Greatest Hits action—and we speak for all Brisbanites when we say this has made our winter dreams come true. Available for pre-order from Thursday, May 21 and pick-up from June 5-11, Messina’s Greatest Hits will see the top 40 specials served in pre-packed 500ml take-home tubs.

Now, we know you’re wondering which 40 flavours made the cut. You can check out the full menu via Messina’s Instagram, but, for the record, we’ll be digging into the crowd favourites Fairy Bread and Mr. Potato Head (peanut butter gelato with white choc-covered potato chips).

Learning from last year’s gelato-hungry hoards of punters buying EVERYTHING in the cabinets, Messina has specially designed their Greatest Hits event to be COVID-friendly, with a larger volume of product, single-flavour take home tubs, and staggered pick-up times over the week.

You can pre-order your packs from Thursday via Messina’s website. If you’ve managed to save money during lockdown, why not order 20 tubs for $260—just use the promo code ‘BALLER’ at the checkout. You’re bloody welcome.
