CHOMP(s)!

Despite being the hottest winter Melbourne has ever had, there is currently not a hint of clear sky and 
the wind is howling against my bedroom window. I'm determined to brave today's weather and have 
brunch with one of my girlfriends.

  1. I first sampled N2 gelato more than couple of months ago,
  2. The hype is over or so I declare.

The great enthusiasm that this franchise has received is mainly due to the process rather than the quality
of product. On my first visit I ordered the Black Lava salted caramel .


So, firstly, salted caramel anything is just... delicious. I worked at a macaroon stall for a period of time and we sold salted caramel macaroons. Let's just say I bought/ate as many of those as I sold. Therefore my expectations for this particular flavour and franchise was very HIGH.


I was pleased with flavour of the Black Lava salted caramel, it was salty and sweet, a nice blend. The texture of gelato was extremely smooth which I enjoyed, very much. Although the "black lava" salt
that sprinkled the gelato was -I NEED WATER WHAT IS IN MY MOUTH- salty. They were very interesting though so as you do, I got excited and wondered what they tasted like, and bit into one along with a decent spoonful of the gelati. Not my best idea.
Overall it was yummy! The hype
amounted to a bit much, I wouldn't say overrated. You definitely get your money's worth and as they say 2 scoops? you don't need it.
