Malcolm in your mouth. What does every Prime Minister need at the end of the day? To kick back and bask in power with an ice cream, of course. Gelato Messina, the upmarket ice cream chain across Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast, knows how important ice cream is to a new PM, creating and naming a flavour of ice cream after Turnbull yesterday. Called “Malcolm’s Malted Milk”, the description reads “malted white chocolate gelato with peanut, banana and choc cream cheese pie. It’s not going to be Malcolm who’s crying over this spilled milk #libspill”. We could do with a scoop of that.
