Praise be – Gelato Messina is slinging cone-ception cookie pie kits
If lockdown has got you snacking like crazy, with food the only respite from the deep boredom that is birthed from staying indoors all day then we see you, fellow feeder. The welcome comfort of nibblies can boost our moods tenfold, and Gelato Messina’s newest creation is a prime example of happiness in food form. Let’s all give a warm welcome to the cone-ception cookie pie, a saucy and crunchy bake-at-home treat that is set to make your life oh-so-much sweeter.
Gelato Messina’s new cone-ception cookie pie is a play on one of its most popular gelato specials, and it’s just as nice – if not nicer – in cookie-pie from. The tastebud-tempting creation is stuffed with milk and dark chocolate chips, caramel custard and waffle-cone spread (made using blitzed waffle cones), and topped with cone crumble – and it’s best enjoyed straight out of the oven. Yes, that’s right – like the OG cookie pie, these sweet sensations are also bake-at-home (30 minutes in the oven will do the trick). Then, you can enjoy pie à la mode – we suggest a couple of huge scoops of delectable Messina gelato.
The bake-at-home cone-ception cookie-pie kit bundle includes the aforementioned pie and a tub of gelato (you can select between 500-ml, 1-L or 1.5-L sizes), which you can fill with your favourite flavours in store on collection. The kits can be ordered online at 9:00 am on Monday August 9 (we suggest signing up here to be reminded to snag yours) and pie lovers can choose their preferred pick-up day and time between August 13–15 at either the South Brisbane or Fortitude Valley store.
