Easter is upon us and this year we’re stepping it up a notch with some delicious food offerings for this special holiday! Hop to it!
PIDAPIPO AND HUNTER + GATHERED MAKING THIS EASTER A LITTLER SWEETER
Pidapipo have teamed up once again with long-time collaborators and master chocolate makers, Hunted + Gathered for a special Colomba Gelato Sandwich just in time for the sweetest time of the year, Easter.
The sweet treat comprises of two slices of Colomba di Pasqua sandwiching a limited-edition gelato flavour of candied orange, almond croccante and Hunted + Gathered 70% dark chocolate chip. Colomba di Pasqua meaning ‘Easter Dove’, is a traditional Italian cake, similar to the famous Christmas cake panettone. It contains candied peel and is fashioned into a shape of a dove, then finally topped with pearl sugar and almonds. If the idea of the Colomba Gelato Sandwich seems too daunting for some, the limited-edition gelato will also be available to enjoy in a cup or cone. To satisfy the chocolate purists, Hunted + Gathered will also be selling a special chocolate bar as an ode to the Colomba di Pasqua. Candied Orange, Pearl Sugar and Roasted Almond chocolate will be available at all three Pidapipo stores, and the Hunted + Gathered coffee shop in Cremorne for a limited time.
Retailing for $8, the Colomba Gelato Sandwich will be available in all three Pidapipo stores from Good Friday, with the campaign wrapping up on the 28th of April. If you want to stay in the comfort of your own home, the collaboration will be available on Uber Eats.
