It's not the best news for our bikini bodies, but it's fabulous news for date nights (or break-up binges), girls' nights in or anytime you crave the kind of sweet fix only a scoop of salted caramel cheesecake gelato with Oreo crumb will satisfy: Messina now delivers to your door.
Provided you live within range of their Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Bondi or The Star stores in Sydney and Fitzroy, Richmond or Windsor stores in Melbourne, you can expect ice-cold gelato to arrive in just 10 minutes or so - and that's definitely a lot less time than it takes to reach the end of the gelataria's notorious queues. "We wanted to be able to pack to order," Sian Bishop, Messina content and brand manager, told Good Food. "When people are ordering Messina, we want them to be able to choose their favourite flavours and choose the specials that are in that week."
Most of Messina's cakes will also be on the home delivery menu. Order yours (and see if your suburb makes the cut) at suppertime.com.au.
