We’re voting a massive YASSSS to marriage equality.
This weekend we want to support our mates at Equality Weekender and do our bit to raise awareness that the deadline for making sure you’re enrolled to have your say in the Marriage Equality Postal Plebiscite is 24th August – that’s next Thursday.
It’s pretty unbelievable that the government have decided to do a POSTAL vote in 2017, but let’s just get on with it. Make sure you’re registered and let’s get this discussion put to bed (with whoever you want). We just think it’s weird that a bunch of straight people might get to decide if same sex couples can marry! Do we support same sex marriage? Sure, but we think everyone should have the right to make their own decisions. Its not rocket science is it…
It’s about time Australia joined the 30 countries that have already legitimised marriage equality and lets stop talking about it!
You can visit any Messina store this weekend and ask them for a paper form to register for your vote or update your details. Fill it out, hand it back to a staff member and we’ll make sure we post it for you on Monday. That in itself is a pretty old school way to do it, so you can fill out the form online right here right now or print your own.
Our gelato chocolate bars are back and on steroids for this years Smooth Festival of Chocolate. Leading the line up is our mammoth sundae – made to satisfy two, or one very very hungry person – CHOCTIMUS PRIME is not one for the faint-hearted.
For the kid in all of us, or for your actual kids there’s three decadent chocolate bars to choose from and you’ll have just as much fun pronouncing their names as you will eating them. Only available at SMOOTH for TWO DAYS or until stocks last. We will be in 2 sites – one in First Fleet Park where we’ll be making CHOCTIMUS PRIME fresh to order + we’ll have all 3 choccy bars available. If you want to have a squiz at our van (CHOCCY McCHOCFACE) and avoid the park queues, we’ll be parked up by the Overseas Passenger Terminal with our 3 choccy bars.
*You might notice a difference in our chocolate*. We’ve been quietly ploughing away in our factory with our brand new chocolate machine – learning the ins and outs of making our very own chocolate in house. It’s here, it’s delicious and it’s currently in all of our stores and in all Smooth festival products.

Who would have thought a little bit of David Lynch would make it’s way to our humble abode? For the first time in the history of GM, two of our stores will be taken over by the TWIN PEAKS – Double R Diner. No regular scoops, gelato cakes or deep house tunes will be present, not even a drop of Salted Caramel White Choc – this is a wonderful and strange special agent operation.
Together with Pedestrian.TV and Stan, we’ve put our Dale Cooper gloves on to take you back in time to the warm and grainy realms of 90’s film. As our stores transform in every way possible into the Double R Diner, each of you will be able to get a taste (literally) of Twin Peaks. With three custom made flavours inspired from key scenes – you can re-live your cult fiction fantasy + the first 50 fans at 12pm & 5pm will get a slice of Norma’s Incredible (gelato) Cherry Pie.
The brand new Twin Peaks season will be released exclusively through Stan on May 22nd.
