When the gelato geniuses at Messina managed to damn near break the internet when they offered to give away the first-ever batch of its cookie pies for free, back in April, they must have known they were onto a good thing. So, it’s little wonder they’re resurrecting this deep-dish delight for another limited edition run with a new twist: a generous slathering of everyone’s favourite chocolate spread, Nutella.
This is the third time Messina has released a version of its cookie pie, but its debut outing did not quite go to plan. Demand vastly outstripped supply, leading to a lot unhappy punters who were unable to get their hands on the bake-at-home dessert. Clearly, Messina has learned from its mistakes, by now making the cookie pies available by pre-order, which should allow for stocks to be sufficiently plentiful once delivery time rolls around.
"We hope that by spreading the stock across 'pre-ordered pick up' and delivery, we might just flatten the pie curve and eradicate people losing their minds because they didn’t get a pie," Messina wrote on its blog.
Dubbed ‘the Messinatella’, you can get a single pie for $20 or a gelato and pie combo kit from $28 - $39. Pre-order is available from Monday, June 8. Full details can be found here.
