There’s no doubt we can feel the Christmas spirit in the air! Lucky for us, multiple eateries around Canberra are putting on some special Christmas eats that will make you feel as jolly as Michael Buble’s Christmas CD (if that’s possible). Try them while they last!
The Christmas Coma- Gelato Messina
The name is most relevant for this one! We’re talking an insanely chocolatey coma-ful trifle with their amazing dulche de leche mousse, combining the love of red velvet cake, vanilla Chantilly cream, chocolate covered biscuit crumbs, Italian meringue, sour cherry & amarena cherry jelly and lime gel for that fruity finish. But wait that’s not enough- they’re adding a litre of Messina Brandy Custard and a bag of choc coated nuts to finish off packed in a Messina branded cooler bag. You can pick your jaw up off the ground now. Order yours here.
Christmas Pudding Blend- ONA Coffee
Coffee that tastes like Christmas- yes please! The team from ONA have announced a limited coffee blend that has a flavour profile reminiscent of traditional Christmas flavours! A roasted blend of three Central American coffees, they are to be paired with milk to highlight the Christmas flavours including fruit cake, custard and raisin.
