N2 EXTREME GELATO

Go crazy, experiment and mix your flavours at Melbourne's new kid on the block. Only their website can sum up this perfection!

"We are a maddening bunch, cream-puff-crazy over creating flavours that have only existed in the collective imaginations of the Nasalis Larvatus. We don't do skinny, fat free desserts (get some I-feel-so-delusionally-healthy-eating-powder-made-frozen-desserts-served-with-oh-so-cute-toppings for those). We are indulgent and we make no apologies for it."

If you're thinking about it, N2 can probably do it.
