Weis Ice Cream Bars Release New Australian-Themed Flavours

Picture this: you walk into your local servo or convenience store and you look to find an ice cream.

Naturally, because this is a beautiful country, there will be loads to choose from. Do you go something creamy? What about fruity? Do you want something on a stick, in a sandwich or just a block of deliciousness?

All these questions will now be completely irrelevant because Weis has unveiled two new ice cream flavours that will forever be your favourite.

The new additions are themed on flavours that are uniquely Australian. It's so Aussie you can almost hear the cicadas in the summer heat.

Introducing: raspberry, pomegranate and Davidson plum, as well as lemon coconut and lemon myrtle.

The two standout flavours, Davidson plum and lemon myrtle, are both native botanicals, shrubs and fruits that are found around Australia.

If you're wondering what the two ingredients will taste like when they land on your tongue, allow Weis to set the record straight.

Davidson Plum is apparently a 'strikingly deep, dark purple fruit' that has 'an earthy aroma, reminiscent of rosella jam and stewed rhubarb'. Sign. Me. Up.

But wait, it gets better.

Lemon Myrtle has a 'strong citrus aroma' that, when combined with the coconut ice cream, creates a perfection combination that will make it feel like summer in your mouth with every bite. Interestingly, Qantas has used this flavour in some of its desserts over the years, so it might be familiar to some of you.

To really celebrate the natural gifts in our country, Weis called on Dixon Patten, an Aboriginal designer to help bring the packaging to life.

Proud Yorta Yorta and Gunnai man, Dixon Patten, from Bayila Creative, has has brought a traditional story to life through a vibrant artwork for each pack.

The waves represent leaves that illustrate Australia's unique indigenous flora and our connection to Country, while the different circles illustrate people from different backgrounds coming together to eat.

Weis has already unleashed these bad boys in IGA stores and Woolworths supermarkets across Australia. They'll set you back $7.50 but make sure you leave enough for everyone.
