Innovating and award winning ice cream boutique Nugelato went viral this weekend after it revealed its newest indulgent dessert, which they claim is a world first.

The makers of the well known ‘Nuggypot’ have combined their passion for hand crafting the finest Italian gelato with inspiration from Mexico to create a brand new style of ice cream dessert in a world first.

Nugelato, who are an independent award winning Co. Down ice cream company based in Newcastle and Newry, hail from a family that has been handcrafting ice cream since 1930.

Nugelato have been at the forefront of the ice cream industry, winning awards and creating a bespoke popular offering since they began in 2015.

The gelato whizz kids at Team Nuggy created the indulgent dessert offering, styled like a burrito with a twist, in what they believe could possibly be the ‘nicest thing ever tasted’ and the only one of its type in the whole world.

Married couple Michael and Catriona explained: “Nugelato prides themselves in doing things differently and innovation is at the heart of all we do.”

“While it’s a cold dessert, even those with the most sensitive teeth can bite in to the Ice cream burrito, and the special foil and style of wrapping keeps any drippages to a minimum.”
