The Top 10 Ice Creams in Melbourne


In the 1991 movie, My Girl, Vada Sultenfuss is instructed to write a love poem. Six lines are dedicated to her love affair with ice-cream. Beginning with, ‘I like ice-cream a whole lot’, Vada echoes the cries of children (and adults) across Melbourne. Because we all scream for ice-cream.

Here are ten of Melbourne’s most popular stores, because with ice cream there’s no such thing as too much!

AQUA S

71db746c3837707a983070b1008dbfd9

Melbourne’s most instagramable cone.

This is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill. More than just ice cream, Aqua S is a work of art. Originating from Okinawa, Japan, sea salt soft serves are as sweet as they sound.  With toppings such as a bed of fairy floss, popping candy, popcorn and grilled marshmallows, Aqua S is not for the faint-hearted. For those who don’t fancy sea salt, two other flavours are also available and are changed fortnightly, so as to always have you coming back for more. Although with a sky blue interior (making you feel as though you’ve just stepped straight into a candy-store…or heaven), and melt-in-your-mouth ice cream, it’s not like you need more reason to.

WHERE TO FIND THEM: 16 Red Cape Lane, QV Melbourne, VIC 3000

https://www.aquas.co/

STAR OF THE SHOW: Aqua S’s signature sea salt flavour, an irresistible shade of sky blue, twirled with fairy floss. You’ll want to start requesting fairy floss as an add-on to everything.

 A Bacio flavoured gelato that will have you questioning where it’s been your whole life.

Can’t afford a plane ticket to Italy? Thanks to Johnny Di Francesco that’s no longer a problem. From 400 Gradi to Zero Gradi, pizza chef Francesco is bringing Italy to Melbourne. Using traditional gelato-making techniques, Zero Gradi boasts 18 flavours, including many Neopolitan classics (such as pistachio, which boasts a subtle, sophisticated flavour of roasted pistachios, espresso, a must have for coffee lovers, or chocolate, which is as rich as it is decadent), with classic Italian toppings such as Panna (whipped cream) and Pizelle (waffle cookies). You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re in Sicily or Naples…

A Nutella Dolce sundae. Hazelnut and chocolate gelato with Nutella popcorn, candid hazelnuts, and Nutella brownies, drizzled with warm Nutella. Can I get an AMEN?

Ok so technically speaking this is a desert bar, but Dolce Gelato makes one hell of an ice-cream. Every sweet tooth’s dream, this store screams ‘Treat yoself’!’. And treat yourself you should, with a salted caramel gelato (salted and crunchy caramel pieces swirled through soft-creamy, ice-cream) with a Nutella swirl (adding a warm, sweet chocolate sensation) and crushed raspberry meringue, or with a blood orange sorbet (a refreshing sweet orange flavour, perfect to cool you down on a summer’s day).

I think this is what Lizze McGuire had in mind when she sang ‘this is what dreams are made of…’.

It’s rare to walk into of Messina’s 3 Melbourne locations, on any given night, and not have to queue up. And for good reason; Messina boasts an impressive menu- the salted caramel and white chocolate has always been a crowd favourite, with extra thick, and extra creamy, salted caramel ice cream complete with mouth-watering white-chocolate pieces- and with 5 specials released weekly, Messina’s been known to send even the calmest of ice-cream lovers into a frenzy. With a goal of ‘making people happy’, a single scoop of Messina ice cream will do just that.

Two scoops because with ice-cream, there’s no such thing as moderation.

It’s almost impossible to stop at just one. Made using fresh seasonal fruits, every choice is an explosion of flavour.

N2 EXTREME GELATO

N2 Gelato is deadly…deadly good.

There’s no doubt about it; look up ‘best ice-cream in Melbourne’ on any website, through any search engine, and N2 Gelato will be somewhere on the list. It is ‘extreme’ in its indulgence; there’s no counting calories here. Their secret? Liquid nitrogen. And yes, you read that right. There’s a science behind it, one N2 proves well. The use of liquid nitrogen allows for the formation of a large number of microscopic ice crystals in seconds, resulting in an exceptionally smooth texture in their gelatos. And with flavours changing every fortnight, you always have a reason to come back!

You can’t buy happiness. But you can buy ice-cream. And that’s pretty much the same thing.

Crafted by hand and made using an assortment of ingredients such as organic milk, fresh nuts, and flavour-packed vanilla beans, Billy Van’s ice cream is as creamy as the name suggests. The inside of the store is just as sweet; with pastel-coloured ice creams dancing along the soft pink walls, you’ll never want to leave. There isn’t a large variety of flavours, however, Billy Van makes up for this in its quality, with sensational, smooth, and creamy gelatos.

The only reasonable solution to a balmy Summer’s day.

Pronounced ‘Bib-loh’, there’s no walking past this stylish South Melbourne salon. Pistachio ice cream, filled with chewy, crystalised pistachios, hazelnut crunch gelato, with a soft hazelnut crumble and pabana sorbet made with fresh banana, mango, and passion fruit are just a few of my (new) favourite things.

  5. The prostate related is the central section of a male’s reproductive system. It secretes fluids that assist the transportation and activation of sperm. The prostate related can be found just in front of the rectum, below the bladder and surrounding the urethra. When there is prostate problem, it is usually very uncomfortable and inconvenient for that patient as his urinary strategy is directly affected.

    The common prostate health issues are prostate infection, enlarged prostate and cancer of the prostate.

    Prostate infection, also known as prostatitis, is easily the most common prostate-related problem in men younger than 55 yrs . old. Infections from the prostate are classified into four types – acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic abacterial prostatitis and prosttodynia.

    Acute bacterial prostatitis may be the least common of most varieties of prostate infection. It is a result of bacteria perfectly located at the large intestines or urinary tract. Patients may experience fever, chills, body aches, back pains and urination problems. This condition is treated by using antibiotics or non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to help remedy the swelling.

    Chronic bacterial prostatitis is really a condition of the particular defect inside gland as well as the persistence presence of bacteria within the urinary tract. It can be caused by trauma towards the urinary tract or by infections from other parts from the body. A patient may experience testicular pain, back pains and urination problems. Although it is uncommon, it is usually treated by removal with the prostate defect followed by the use antibiotics and NSAIDs to deal with the soreness.

    Non-bacterial prostatitis is the reason approximately 90% of most prostatitis cases; however, researchers have not even to establish the sources of these conditions. Some researchers believe that chronic non-bacterial prostatitis occur as a result of unknown infectious agents while other feel that intensive exercise and heavy lifting can cause these infections.

    Maintaining a Healthy Prostate

    To prevent prostate diseases, an appropriate diet is important. These are some with the things you can do to maintain your prostate healthy.

    1. Drink sufficient water. Proper hydration is important for general health and will also also maintain the urinary track clean.

    2. Some studies declare that several ejaculations each week will prevent prostate cancer.

    3. Eat pork in moderation. It has been shown that consuming greater than four meals of beef weekly will raise the likelihood of prostate diseases and cancer.

    4. Maintain an effective diet with cereals, vegetable and fruits to ensure sufficient intake of nutrients essential for prostate health.

    The most critical measure to take to ensure a normal prostate would be to choose regular prostate health screening. If you are forty years and above, you need to choose prostate examination at least one time 12 months.

  6. Torsion bras de quelqu’un est comment poupe votre sang pousse contre les parois de vos arteres lorsque votre coeur essence pompe le sang. Arteres sont les tubes qui transportent prendre offre sang loin de votre coeur. Chaque culture votre manque de sensibilite bat, il pompe le sang a tous egards vos arteres a la reste de votre corps.
