Locally produced Gelato at the Tuggeranong Hyperdome

By poptop - 28 April 2013 45

Gelato Mio

Gelato Mio, has opened at the Hyperdome which sells locally produced Gelati and claims them to be authentically Italian. I have missed having reasonable access to good Gelati and so have vested and deeply selfish interest in encouraging this one to commercial success.

After braving the delights of shepherding some younger relatives through their retail needs, we paused for gelati before heading home.

Ordered were a Mars Bar and Caramel, a Blood Orange, and a Coffee and Lemon. All three of us were completely delighted with our selections (although the Belgian Chocolate does look darkly tempting and I do regret not trying it). The waffle cones are fresh and super crispy.

While not cheap ($3:80 for a single generous scoop, $4.80 for a double) the Gelati are cleanly flavourful, refreshing and authentic tasting.

Well worth a drop in if you are passing through the Hyperdome.

I ordered Gelato (Chocolate mix) from a specialty lolly and Gelato shop in Jindabyne a few months ago. And as they were out of stock at the counter, the shop assistant proceeded to go out the back and bring in a box with the Streets trademark on it, and unwrap the container also with a streets trade mark on it. It tasted good but I was disappointed in the fact I was under the impression it was made on the premises or at least locally and was genuine. Are you sure the Tuggeranong Hyperdome one’s are genuine Italian Gelato, not from Streets or other multi national company?

How can Mars Bar flavour be ‘authentically Italian’?

Probably in the same way as Belgian Chocolate can be; they have mango too. I guess it depends on how far back in history is the cut off point for the source of the ingredients.

True, but Mars Bar flavour seems wrong, somehow. However, it is in Tuggeranong, where lots of people seem to regard Mars Bars as fruit. (Cue outrage…)

Maybe the Roman god of war deserves a mention.

Outrage activated.

As commercially available Gelati and Mars Bars are contemporaneous, I doubt the Italians see a difficulty.

Mars, momento di vero godimento.

The owner is authentically Italian, coming from a long line of Italians involved in the food industry. Some of the different, non traditional flavours are produced using the Italian process and machinery and applying the different range of available ingredients.

The same way something called sorbet can be Italian.

People still think saying “people still…..?” makes them look clever?
