Experimental gelato has never been cheaper with 2 scoops for $3 gelato including Apple Pie, Pandan and Coconut, Creme Brulee, and plenty others at Messina Gelato on Groupon, used by April 22, 2014.
If you were lucky enough to grab one of 5008 groupons, then you must be congratulated. Those groupons went quickly after their release last Friday and they have come up again today!
I work voluntarily at the Cancer Council at Woolloomooloo near Kings across station and it is literally a 2 minute walk from Messina. It’s hard to stop that temptation every lunch break!!
The piles and piles of ice cream from each basin is exotic. Loving the pandan and coconut and sicilian trifle. Which Messina flavour is your favourite?
Normally it is $4 for one scoop, or $6 for two, or $7 for three. Watch out if you’re in a bigger group because 500ml/ half a litre is only $10! Bargain!
Next door they also do a cake shop with a small range of ice cream specialties although they are quite expensive…
There’s even a mushroom one! Cute!
Normally there is a massive line so remember to come early to avoid the queue. And now that the groupon vouchers are released.. who knows what the traffic will be like! I guess it was more of a social media campaign because it’s encouraging more people to ‘like’ their page. Maybe they want to go nationally, then internationally?
Not sure why Messina needed to release Groupon vouchers because my circle of friends are already onto it. If you didn’t know about this ice cream magic, I highlight recommend it!
Now this is the reason why students skip lectures, office workers go on extended lunch breaks, and those who want to experience excellent ice cream.
Now there’s fierce competition:
Our Deal has $3 for $6 worth of frozen yoghurt at Yoforia (FYI – tried it once there and it was quite disappointing. At Harbourside, Darling Harbour)
DealOffer has $3 for $6 worth of frozen yoghurt at Yoghurberry (FYI – there are always heaps of flavours and is pretty good. At George Street, near Townhall store only)
Let the gelato/froyo voucher redeeming madness games begin! #messinastillwins
Review Rating: =D =) =| =(
Product ($3 for 2 scoops of Messina Gelato): =D
Would I get $3 Messina Gelato everyday? Heck yes! How can you not resist? Ice cream is not the best for you but gelato could be snore story. I love how inventive it is here and there is always a new variety of flavours not he blackboard. The classic ones are also available. How can you not?
Would I pay $6 for two scoops of Messina? Um.. I don’t think there has been a deal like this before and $6 for two scoops is quite the norm. Even places like Movenpick and Gelatissimo have $5ish scoops so doing $1 extra for two is awesome sauce. Yes, I did not do a typo. #awesomesauce is the word.
Highlight: the gelato!! If you knew me during high school, I disliked ice cream but since coming back from Italy, my life has changed forever. I love the difference in flavours and I always like to try funky flavours. I love a bit of surprise!
Suggestion of improvement: sometimes I would just like the scoopers to be that a little bit more generous… but then again it is a half price deal. Why is the limit only ONE per customer? I think I used all my email addresses.. haha. Also, beware that the line is always miles long- even if its not on a groupon deal.
