Messina launches an indulgent new MILO flavoured gelato

Paying tribute to an Australian classic, Sydney’s Gelato Messina is set to launch a Milo flavoured gelato later this month.

The new delicious offering is made with layers of malt flan, Milo crumble, Jersey milk gelato and Milo shaved ice with a Milo dust coating.

But customers should act quickly as the limited-edition flavour will only be available from April 16 and 17 from the Messina Rosebery location in Sydney.

The news was shared to the Gelato Messina Instagram page on April 7 and more than 5,000 customers seemed eager to try the flavour.

‘Introducing our malty take on the classic halo halo…MILO MILO,’ the social media caption read.

Halo-halo is a Filipino word that means ‘mixture’ or something that has been ‘mixed’, and in the Philippians it is also a popular summertime dessert.

Hundreds of shoppers tagged friends and family in the comments to share their excitement.

‘Ohh so many textures, just like the real Milo!’ one person wrote, another said: ‘I support this’.

Last year Gelato Messina also released a ‘Triple Whammy’ Milo gelato with Nutella fudge and Oreo cookies for the ultimate sweet dessert.

The brand is known for releasing limit-edition specials sporadically, but customers can stay updated by joining the Gelato Messina mailing list or following the brand’s social media pages.
