THE CHICK MAGNET

HATCH ME IF YOU CAN – THIS EASTERThe Chick Magnet - Messina Easter 2016

This Easter, we’ve created quite the lay-dees man with this cheeky CHICK MAGNET. 

He’s available in Sydney, Melbourne and Coolangatta between now and the 24th March, or until sold out. He’s not the monogamous type and has already committed to going home with lots of ladies, so he won’t be around for much longer.

WHAT’S INSIDE THE CHICK MAGNET? Nestled inside a milk and white chocolate shell, the egg is filled with milk chocolate ganache and white choc hazelnut gelato. He gets his egg-like texture from a white chocolate velvet spray, specially designed for birds. His feet and leaves are hand moulded from milk chocolate, with his toes being delicately dipped in dark choc to finish.

The deceptively oozy stones are also filled with milk chocolate ganache and white choc hazelnut gelato and ganached with white chocolate.

Charlie and Chocolate Factory - Messina Golden Ticket

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Our Golden Age in Surry Hills to guest present Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. We often feel like we could be Charlie, here in our gelato factory, just not quite so young (we all look a bit more like Grandpa Joe in real life). We’re screening the original 1971 version (sorry Jonny Depp fans). Included in the ticket price is our own tribute to those scrumdiddlyumptious Wonka Bars, one of which will contain a MESSINA GOLDEN TICKET!

23RD MARCH @ 8.30PM – there’s only 55 seats in the cinema so get in quick.

THAT’S MINT. REAL MINT

All about them ‘Erbs & our Choc Mint Gelato

Every mound of Choc Mint gelato you’ll see in the cabinet in-store contains 5 bunches of mint – picked, washed & juiced. Fresh mint. Actual mint like the stuff that you muddle into a mojito. Before it gets to looking like this…some minty moments need to happen…

Thanks to @copywritermath@crazal for this drippin’ image

What’s up with mint?

We often get customers who try our Choc Mint flavour for the first time come back to us only to tell us that something “isn’t quite right” with it. They often come back with very confused looks on their faces, as the flavour they were expecting isn’t the one that they have in front of them. Most people expect a fake;  toothpaste or after dinner chocolate kind of mint flavour that we’ve become so accustomed to over the years. This kind of flavour is peppermint oil, artificially extracted and used in things like chewing gum, toothpaste & of course other choc-mint ice creams and gelatos.
