2014 Gelato World Tour winner lives up to its glory and award winning creation
While Gelato Messina is popular with the crowds, another Sydney gelato-maker, The Cow and the Moon, was crowned winner at the Gelato World Tour in Rimini, Italy in 2014 for its almond-affogato flavor.
So despite the winter chill, I made by way down to the Inner West suburb of Enmore just for their gelato.
I had the Chocolate, Fior di Latte and Mandoria Affogato flavors.
I didn’t particular like the Fior di Latte flavor. Thought it was quite weak and didn’t really stand out. I had better ones in Melbourne. The chocolate was rich and decent but forgettable. The affogato flavor was really the best of the lot. The nice aromatic taste of a single origin coffee combined with the nice crunch almonds was just simply divine and made the other flavors pale in comparison. Texture wise, I still prefer Il Melograno and Pidapipo. But that’s just a preference.
I had a taste-test of the Pistachio. Wasn’t really impressed. Just stick to the Mandoria Affogato. You won’t regret the trip.
