The Messina Easter Egg sold out in 24 hours in Sydney. There are less that 30 left in Melbourne. Needless to say, you better get on it quick.

Messina wants you to adopt one of its precious Easter eggs and look after it as you see fit (obviously, it will be safest in your stomach).

Big enough to feed two to three people, expect a white chocolate shell, chocolate gelato inside, an oozy white chocolate yolk, a delicate and crunchy nest of chocolate and hazelnut with chocolate jelly and dark-chocolate cream.

Decision made? No need to get up and run – you can only get it by ordering online. Then sit back and anticipate the arrival of the tastiest hatchling around.

Pick up is from Messina Gelato in Fitzroy.
