Ice cream trapped inside a glass box, I hope someone lets it out soon.
While on the Gold Coast I got to eat loads of Ice cream, which can never be a bad thing....right?. Considering it was fairly warm and I was walking around alot, I thought it only fair to increase my ice cream intake, and thankfully I was spoilt for choice. It seemed like every corner on every street was occupied by an ice cream place, a bit like MacDonalds....but without the burgers and scary clown.
We had walked past Gelatissimo a couple of times, and the crowds assembled in front of the ice cream freezer meant that I had to have my first ice cream here. I went for a combination of pistachio (one of the best ice cream flavours ever invented) and chocolate.
I wanted to eat it so badly, that I rushed the shot and only took a very blurry photo
The ice cream here was scary good. There were whole pistachio's, which were nicely toasted and crunchy, the amount of times that I've had soggy dodgy nuts in ice cream is enough to turn anyone off the icy creamy dessert. The chocolate flavour was rich without being bitter and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't often choose chocolate because it can so easily be stuffed up. I'm glad to say that after a quick check of the Gelatissimo website I've discovered that there is a store right here in Melbourne! Yay! Lygon Street needed just ONE more ice cream parlour.....now it's complete. So now I can have crunchy pistachio ice cream any time of the year, all I need to do is keep my physical activity levels up.....what are the chances of that?
