Greatest Hits 2023

Regular price $19.00

All Greatest Hits stock is now sold out.

Greatest Hits is back for 2023 with all your certified favourites from the last year. We've collated your most-eaten specials into one super-sonic 40-flavour release so you can stock up your freezer and hibernate on your couch with a huge spoon until the weather warms up.

Messina 'Specials' were conceived in 2008, and ever since, we have been rotating 5 new flavours each week in all our stores. That means we release 260 specials every year, and this is your chance to get your hands on your fave releases from the last 365 days packed in handy tubs. 

The details:

  • 500ml tubs – All flavours will be freshly packed into individual 500ml insulated tubs.  If you're a regular, we've moved on from the pints in previous years to a thermo-lined tub — they have a decent amount of insulation but not as much as the styrofoam, so get them home within approx. 30 mins or bring a cooler bag to be on the safe side. The tub is slightly larger than in previous years. Tub dimensions: 16 (length) x 9.5 (width) x 6.5cm (height)

    The story behind Messina's Greatest Hits and 20 years of specials:

    We’ve watched as over 4000 specials have hit the cabinet since opening. Some come and leave without so much as a whisper, whilst others make a lot of noise and are so good they make regular come backs. Always greeted with much frantic fanfare from those who know.

    It’s hard to believe we’ve been around since 2002, when we opened our first Darlinghurst store on Victoria street.  In those 19 years and now over 20 stores, our cabinets have seen over 4000 gelato specials and new flavours do the rounds, rotating in and out along side Messina classics. For those who don't know, Messina specials first came to fruition properly when Head Chef Donato Toce joined the team in 2008, and he made them a permanent offering. They now occupy 5 slots in our cabinet and rotate every week so there's a new flavour every Tuesday - Saturday. We've had thousands of different flavour creations over the years - some, we’re happy to forget about… like Nacho Libre (don’t ask) and Roast Chicken Sorbet, but there’s a lot that are house favourites, and that we get asked to bring back on the reg or have a special back story to them. They've become an integral part of Messina history and our story overall. So we thought we'd celebrate!
