Gelato retailer Messina has partnered with iced confectionery maker Peters to create a range of Messina Gelato Bars for supermarkets.
The line follows a partnership between the companies last year on four Messina Gelato versions of the famous Drumstick cone.
The new range comprises three products: A Choc Hazelnut Gelato Bar with cocoa gelato, layered with chocolate biscuit and Messina‐made hazelnut sauce, enrobed in hazelnut choc; Espresso Dulce De Leche Gelato Bar, a espresso gelato, biscuit and gooey Messina‐made Dulce de Leche centre, enrobed in a milk choc; and Strawberry Cheesecake Gelato Bar, lemon-infused gelato, biscuit and strawberry sauce, enrobed in pink choc.
The new range will not be on sale at Messina stores, but will be stocked in four-packs at Coles, Woolworths and independent grocery stores, retailing for $10.
Messina described the design process as “long and delicious,” combining the product development experts at Peters and Messina’s own R&D team.
