When you think of Australia, what are the first things that spring to mind? If you asked us that question, we’d give you the following list: sun, sea, sand, surfers, and soft and creamy ice cream.
That’s why we think our overseas cousins could offer the perfect example if you’re in need of some dessert-worthy inspiration before ice cream season comes around. As the weather warms up and the days grow longer, consumer taste buds are changing, and your menu needs to reflect this.
So, take a lesson from the pros and be sure to ogle the offerings of the following Australian ice cream elite with our best ice cream in Australia guide…
48 Flavours, Adelaide
Our first pick on our list of deliciously good dessert sellers is 48 Flavours in Adelaide. If you’re wondering what’s so special about them, the clue is in the name: they have 48 unique flavours on offer at any given time, each one carefully created by a talented in-house team. Using exclusively local produce purchased from the market down the road, they sell old favourites like chocolate and vanilla alongside one-of-a-kind creations including Red Bull and roasted walnut. The lesson to be learned? Keep your options varied and your ingredients ethical.
Sweet Envy, Hobart
Sweet Envy sells more than just ice cream: divine chocolate biscuits, exquisitely yummy pastries, and delicious layered cakes all number amongst their offerings. However, their homemade ice cream is something of a speciality, and there’s a good reason for this – its flavours are uniquely adult. Made with vodka, Guinness, and more, they offer great taste with a unique twist. Consider offering a similar option to your menu.
Ubuntu Real Food Co, Perth
We’ve already indicated that an extensive array of options is a clever move on any eatery owner’s part, and one way to replicate this without having to purchase quite so many different products is to follow in the footsteps of this Perth-based business. Ubuntu Real Food Co mixes it up by allowing its customers to choose their own toppings, which they make into a one-of-a-kind ice cream right before their eyes. Is this a trick you might want to add to your own repertoire?
Opened by Master Chef guest judge Christy Tania, bona fide dessert queen and creator of many Willy Wonka-esque creations, Glacé is probably the best place to stop for an ice cream in Melbourne. This boutique eatery’s unique selling point is its ‘push-pop’ ice creams, which allow those who try its tasty delights to pack as much flavour into a single ‘pop’ as possible. As if this weren’t enough, Glacé gives its diners the option to order direct from Deliveroo, so that they can sit in the sunshine of their own backyards to enjoy them. Turns out that a takeaway option is a definite hit, so don’t forget to take note!
Warmer weather really is just around the corner, and that means an awful lot of diners are about to start looking around for a cool and deliciously tasty dessert option.
