Gelatissimo's Chinese New Year Flavour

Gelatissimo is selling a limited-edition gelato flavour in celebration of Chinese New Year.

The new ‘Fortune and Fullness’ flavour is inspired by food traditionally eaten at Chinese New Year and consists of peanut butter flavoured gelato with a crunchy sesame swirl.

Gelatissimo Product Development Manager, Filiz Kaya, said gelato is ideal for sharing with loved ones who are coming together to celebrate Chinese New Year.

“We also wanted to branch out and create a flavour that ties in the significance associated with Chinese New Year and different symbolic food enjoyed in celebrations,” Kaya said.

“And the delicate, sweet flavours of sesame seeds and the robust flavours of roasted peanuts does just that.”

During Chinese New Year celebrations peanuts are eaten to encourage longevity and good fortune. Sesame seeds symbolise fullness.

Gelatissimo’s Fortune and Fullness flavour will be available at Gelatissimo stores Australia-wide from 15 February 2018 whilst stocks last.

Gelatissimo is not the only Australian food company releasing a limited-edition product in celebration of Chinese New Year. Chobani has launched a mandarin flavoured yoghurt packaged in red and gold colours.

Chinese New Year will fall on 16 February 2018.
