Do you know that your favourite ice-cream flavour can reveal
The week ahead is getting warmer, so it's time to shed those boring sweaters and bring on some colours! And, what better way than to do it through ice cream?
If you haven't been hibernating during these colder months, you would notice a gentle giant sweeping through Melbourne city with its colours and flavours. And, I am not exaggerating when I say it is a giant.
Movenpick was created in Swiss restaurants since the 1960s and it is now in more than 38 countries. In the last few months, it has rapidly expanded its presence through the city and it is now found in QV, Melbourne Central and Fed Square. And there may be more that I don't know about, since they seem to be sprouting up from thin air.
Gentle giant sweeping through Melbourne City: Mövenpick
Since they surround me and I can't fight them, so I might as well surrender to the irresistible lure of ice cream. Thankfully, I chanced upon a 50% Groupon deal, so I could have twice as much ice cream. If you are as greedy as me, bookmark that page and wait faithfully for the deal to return!
But, if you can't patiently do that, then continue reading as I share with you the must-have flavours to make the most out of your money.
If you only have $10, try the Chocolate Decadence. It's a sundae with Swiss Chocolate and Stracciatella (a rich creamy vanilla ice cream filled with generous dark chocolate bits) settled on fluffy whip cream and chocolate sauce.
If you have only $5, then just go for a scoop of Rum & Raisin, Swiss Chocolate or Carmelita. You will be pleasantly surprised to find generous chunks of chocolate and caramel in them. In my haste to devour the ice cream, I only realised I didn't have any pictures to share with you except for an empty plate (yes, even the waffle basket was not spared). And, you probably won't blame me after you try them.
