Our Greatest Gelato Hits

Gelato is a bit like music really…

For some people, their choice of flavour might depend on their mood at the time. Maybe you need something deep and comforting? Or perhaps you are feeling light and boisterous?

On the other hand, some people know exactly what they like and they don’t want to try anything else.

Either way, that’s fine with us. We’re not here to judge. In fact, all of our flavours are a bit special to us because they all have a reason as to why we make them.

That’s why we thought we’d share a bit about some of our most popular flavours (gelato hits!) at the moment…

Caramilk

Caramilk is super popular right now but like many chart-toppers, we don’t know how long it will be around for or if it will ever make a comeback after its time is done.

What we do know is that presently we have to engage some ‘Covert Caramilk Agents’ around town to let us know when they see new stock come into the shops. It can be that hard to get.

Roasted Macadamia and Salted Caramel Liqueur

This one is just SOOO rich and creamy and is a massive hit with the grown-ups. At its heart is a combination of two iconic local products – macadamias from Macadamias Australia and liqueur from Bundaberg Rum.

This flavour was originally crafted especially for Winterfeast a few years ago but from time to time we like to bring it back. When we do, it sure sells out fast.

Vegan Options

Our vegan gelatos are growing in demand as more and more people make the choice to adopt a plant-based lifestyle. Our vegan gelatos are soy-based and the delightful flavours include Chai, Vanilla Bean and Strawberry.

All of our sorbets are also suitable for vegans.

What’s Your Favourite Gelato?

Do you have a favourite you stick with all the time or do you like to mix things up? Or perhaps you have an idea for a flavour we don’t have yet? Please feel welcome to let us know.

Meet our Gelato Mestro’s

I love checking out the cabinet at the end of gelato making days.

It always looks so fresh and fun, it’s a joy to behold.  My other favourite thing to do is taste the new flavours straight from the batch processor, the product is just so creamy.  A few weeks back I took some time to watch all the processes again …………….. ok, and maybe to sample some of the product as well.  After all, someone has to do quality control!  It may as well be me :-)

Afterwards I chatted with our amazing team who bring you all the wonderful flavours in the cabinet each week. I asked them a few of their favourite things about gelato. Here’s what they said

What is your favourite thing, or what do you love about making gelato?

Libby:gelato, icecream, ice-cream, ice cream
I love being able to use the fresh local produce that Bundaberg has to offer in my gelato and sorbet. I like inventing exciting and unique flavours creating a fun experience for our customers.
Georgia:
Everything about it! It’s great fun, I never not want to be on a gelato day! The new flavours are always exciting and gelato or sorbet straight out of the batch processor is soooooo delicious
Nerilyn:
I love the versatility of making new gelato flavours

What is your Favourite Flavour?

Nerilyn:  Top Deck or Macadamia gelato, icecream, ice-cream, ice cream
Libby:  My favourite would have to be the passionfruit, white chocolate and lime curd gelato. It uses Tina Berries passionfruit and Bundy Limes which we then make into a yummy curd that we swirl throughout the gelato.
Georgia:  I love Chocolate Sorbet and Malteser, but most of them are pretty good!

 

 

Gelato or Sorbet?

Georgia:
Not playing favourites, I like both, but can’t eat much gelato.
Nerilyn:
Definitely Gelato!
Libby:
Depends what day you have me on. In summer, sorbets are always a hit and very refreshing but gelato would have to be the winner.

What’s Your Worst Injury?

No battle scars as of yet.
Georgia:
Squished my finger good and proper once when I was putting the door on the machine
Nerilyn:
Got stitches after busting my finger open while cleaning the machine
