Always keen to see what new gelato flavours Messina has on offer, I was delighted to experience their latest creation on the weekend.
Signor Palumbo saw my eyes light up as I spied the new tub. He confessed that this was batch no. 3 of liquorice, but that it had indeed taken 3 attempts to perfect. First it was too aniseedy, then too sweet.
Now, by God it is truly creamy and altogether sensational.
