Trolls inspire new ice-cream range

WHAT does a troll taste like? Bubblegum and cupcakes, of course.

To celebrate the release of Trolls the Movie on DVD, Gelatissimo Noosa have partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Dreamworks to unveil two new ice-cream flavours, inspired by main characters Poppy and Branch.

Poppy's frosting is a pink bubblegum flavour with edible blue flowers and red sprinkle toppings, and Branch's cupcake is a purple cupcake flavour with edible purple pearls and blue sprinkle toppings.

Gelatissimo Noosa manager Anita Arnold said her staff are always excited to help promote a product with a new flavour of ice-cream.

"We were looking forward to this one," Ms Arnold said.

"We do a new flavour every month and we do kids flavours for the holidays.

"With the two new ice-cream flavours, we're also doing a colouring-in comp for a prize pack.

"I have a feeling the cupcake flavour is going to go crazy."

While the two Trolls ice-cream flavours feature bright pink and bright purple hues, Ms Arnold said Gelatissimo used natural products to bring the colours to life.

"Gelatissimo uses no artificial colours or flavours in their ice-creams," she said.

"Poppy's frosting is coloured with strawberries, and Branch's is with spirulina."

Ms Arnold's daughter Emily Fraser is a big fan of the Trolls movie, and has helped the shop get into the spirit of the promotion.

"She loves it (the movie). She's given us all of her troll figurines to decorate the shop," Ms Arnold said.

Gelatissimo is open 10am-10pm every day.

Trolls the Movie is out now on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital HD.
