Messina Additions - Florentine

At Messina HQ we make everything from scratch.  Every gelato flavour has it’s own unique recipe and every baked addition is produced in our factory by our pastry chefs.

Our traditional Italian florentine combines — dried fruit, almonds, a crunchy biscuit base and set dark chocolate.  You can catch it IRL in our gelato special: BE MY FLORENTINE – Dark chocolate gelato smashed with housemade florentines.

Watch the eighth video in our Additions Series (below) to see the ‘florentine’ in action. And if you’re really keen - watch how we make our red velvet cake, hot cross buns, chocolate (yes — we make our own chocolate!), chocolate brownies, Anzac biscuits and baked cheesecake.
