Gelatissimo – Flavours of the World

July 30th, 2009

I was recently contacted by Gelatissimo, informing me of their new, limited range of gelato called: “Flavours of the World” and offering for me to try a few of the new flavours. They have a great range of gelato on offer for this promotion, from lovely refreshing fruity flavours to beautiful creamy ones.

When the samples arrived I was ecstatic to see both French Crème Brulee and American Fudge Brownie in the box and was very interested in trying the Italian Limoncello and Chinese Lychee and Coconut, as I always tend to go for the more creamy, chocolate or caramel gelatos.

I got a couple more people around to try the flavours and get a better range of opinions. We started off with the Italian Limoncello, which was strongly lemon flavoured and very refreshing, which would be great either between meals as a palate cleanser or on a hot day.

Next we tried the Chinese Lychee and Coconut, which was creamy with prominent coconut flavours and a hint of lychee.

The favourite from everyone was the French Crème Brulee, with lovely swirls of caramel throughout, the flavours worked nicely and would be one I would choose when out.

The American Fudge Brownie worked very well with the Crème Brulee, although we had a huge chunk of brownie, which we feel would have been better in smaller chunks and with a stronger chocolate flavour in the gelato.

Gelatissimo have a whole heap of other flavours including: Swiss Toblerone, Canadian Maple and Walnut, Kiwi Hokey Pokey and Australian Honey and Macadamia along with Tahitian Coconut Cream and Lime, Carribbean Papaya and Passionfruit, Brazilian Coffee and Thai Mango and Coconut – but only for a limited time.

  1. They all look so delicious. I think I would have to snaffle the Crème Brulee into a corner for myself!

    We used to always hit up Hornsby Gelatissimo and order the 8 “mini-flavours” which was supposed to be 8 teeny tiny scoops of the flavours of your choice, something like $7-8 including a wafer. The trick was to get one of the kids to serve you because they would just use the regular scoop and we would have way too much ice cream for just two people. I like to think they removed it from the menu because of us 😛

    That limoncello flavour looks pretty enticing though mmmm

  3. I remember trying gelatissimo in queensland, and boy was it good. I wish I could have a free sample sent to me! I know there is a store here in melbourne, but I havent had a chance to swing by and get some more icecream goodness!

  4. That’s a nice parcel to receive! The creme brulee flavour does sound good, and a strong lemon gelato is a favourite of mine.

  5. Oh cool! We got these too and we had a tasting session with friends 😀 Lychee coconut was the winner for our group!

    Wow I am jealous! They all look SO good…can you believe I have never yet had the pleasure of trying gelato? The French Crème Brulee certainly sounds the most appealing, but I would certainly love to also try the Swiss Toblerone and the Thai Mango and Coconut!
