Perhaps the only thing that will help abate the severity of the extreme heat we’re currently experiencing is ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. Eat it as though your life depends on it Gold Coasters because that might just be the case at this point.
In very good news (because luckily ice cream is also delicious), a sweet new ice creamery has just opened up at Marina Mirage and there are some flavours on offer there that are going to keep your tongue busy for a very long time. Yep.
From the beginning though, the newbie is called Ungermann Brothers and if you’re a MasterChef fan you’ll understand the gravity of this addition to our local dessert scene. Ben Ungermann was the 2017 runner up on the show and together with his brother Danny, has created a world-class ice creamery that we now get to visit on the daily.
The gourmet venue is the second of it’s kind, the first opened in Ipswich last year to rave reviews (obviously) and we are so very excited.
Opening just in time for the scorching summer we’ve only just begun (help), Ungermann Brothers is scooping up something a little bit different to your regular icy styles.
There are 18 weird and wonderful flavours including Blue Cheese and Fig, Roasted Garlic, and Lavender and Honeycomb and the exclusive Gold Coast flavour is salted caramel, tempered chocolate and potato chips which are three of our absolute favourite things you guys.
Of course they also do your regular faves too if you’re in need of some normalcy.
Move out of the way please, that’s all ours.
Ungermann Brothers ice cream is made with raw and natural ingredients. With no artificial stabilisers or flavours, every scoop is made from locally sourced ingredients in-store daily.
Umm so not sure why you’re still reading, get in the car right now and go sample one of every single flavour and bring us one of each too and we can be friends forever.
Off to bathe in a tub of ice cream now thank you for reading, bye.
