There are some things in life you never thought you’d see; a world taken down by a mystery virus, takeaway cocktails, Kanye running for president, the list is long.
The latest thing we can add is a Gold Coast addition, excitingly it is none other than hot ice cream.
The beloved dessert has crossed over to the warm side and is making all things winter that little bit more bearable.
The idea sprung from Burleigh Heads ice creamery Tango Gelato, a firm favourite amongst Gold Coast locals for their delightful array of mouthwatering ice cream flavours and close proximity to Burleigh Hill, where all the best ice cream eating is done.
So what is hot ice cream you ask?
Basically the premise is that the crew at Tango Gelato take your favourite flavour of hand-crafted gelato or sorbet and make into a hot drink style situation.
The opportunities are endless, choose from flavours like Hot Mars Bar, Hot Salted Caramel and Nutella, Hot Honeycomb Crunch, Hot Choc Mint and many many more.
If you’ve not yet had the pleasure of visiting Tango Gelato, let us tell you, they have more exceptional flavours than you could possibly imagine and have even won Queensland Dairy Product awards for their unique flavour sensation, the Licorice Mint Gelati.
Sounds like the perfect treat to us.
The crew are also slinging the tasty treat at their Palm Beach store so nobody will even know if you indulge twice a day.
Hot ice cream, the very best way to cure those winter blues.
LOCATION: 1726 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads and 1102 Gold Coast Hwy, Palm Beach (Pavilions Palm Beach)
