Fritz has long been a favourite of ours, so it seemed a fitting place to be the first reviewed on this website. In our extensive experience tasting gelato and ice creams at various locations, we’ve found that Fritz’s gelato has consistently been one of the best gelato/ice creams we’ve ever had.
Fritz has stores in a number of locations, of which we’ve been to Richmond, Prahran, St Kilda and their temporary summer pop-up in Portsea. Mostly out of convenience when we lived near by, Richmond has been our most frequented store, and the one we went to this night.
It was the day before Good Friday, and we knew Fritz had a special flavour in the store this month – Hot Cross Bun. Fritz often makes a special flavour for the month/season, some of our repeated favourites being Plum Pudding and Lemon Cheesecake.
We both ordered a 2 scoop cup – with one scoop of chocolate and one scoop of hot cross bun flavour. As anticipated, the gelato was creamy and richly flavoured, and tasted exactly like you were eating a hot cross bun. We were once again amazed!
As we are frequent visitors, we thought it was worth including a note about our favourite flavours that are in store permanently – chocolate and honeycomb. The honeycomb includes nice chunks of actual honeycomb, and the flavour of the ice cream itself has an outstanding honeycomb flavour. The chocolate doesn’t have chunks, but is the best balance of not too sweet or too dark, just a fantastic chocolate flavour.
