I am addicted...

to Gelato Messina. It's the finest gelato in Sydney and a favourite on my dining outings. Actually, at the moment, it's receiving a daily visit from me.

Tonight I discovered a flavour that I had never tasted before and I'm totally won over by it. It's Dulce de Leche. I can not put into words how amazing this little scoop of gelato is. In fact, I announced to my flat mate that there now IS something better than chocolate.

The other flavours on tonight's plate were:
honeycomb, panna cotta, pistachio and choc chip.

The thought of another scoop of Dulce de leche is making my mouth water as I post this.

Oh and to complete the set, dulce de leche is what i thought - milk and sugar heated gently to caramelise. that's why it tastes so good... :)

My mouth is watering too, and only from seeing the picture.

Yum, yum, yummie.

I don't get it...you manage to maintain your gelato gluttony and lose weight too? How are the two mutually compatable?

Muz, FIVE scoops - you're as big a fan of gelato/icecream as me!!! And yes, Dulce de leche is yummmmo! OK, we need to eat gelato and THEN go dancing once night! and drink beer. :-)

*drools* Dammit Muz, I'm already craving something bad and now you've just gone and tipped me over the edge. My fat mid-scetion is going to hunt you down, I swear!

I have heard quite a bit about this sensation dulce de leche so I may have to track it down for myself. Can anyone suggest a good spot in Melbourne to do so?

Dave: Tasty wasn't it!
Peter: The picture doesn't even come close to capturing how delicious this stuff looks for real.
AR: Walking and running - every day. Not too far though, just about 5km each day.
Monty: Messina is just so good, isn't it!
Kezza: If you ever visit Sydney, I'll treat you to a scoop or two. :)

Ok, now pistachio is among my favorite flavors... You've just given my reason #427 for why I need to get my butt to Australia one of these days.

the pistasio is one of my favorites.

dulce de leche is fantastic...if you shop around

Dulce de leche has been my favorite Haagen-Dazs flavor for a long time now. I'll have to try this!
