They put the lime in the coconut...

Lime curd and coconut gelato from Takapuna Beach Cafe


Recently I read about amazing new technology that triggers scents related to what's on your computer. If you're playing a home movie of someone's birthday, for example, you'll be able to smell 'cake'. 


If we had this technology right now, you would be able to smell the creamy, coconutty, limey (and briney - we were at the beach) deliciousness that is Lime Curd and Coconut gelato from the Takapuna Beach Cafe.


'Heavenly' doesn't do it justice. I described it to a friend as 'the best gelato I have ever eaten', and lord knows I have eaten plenty. Several times my weight at least. Who am I kidding? Several times the weight of a bus...at least. (My friend Rosie and I averaged two a day in Italy. Pasta schmasta!)


If only someone would invent 'taste-o-vision', I'm sure there'd be a Nobel Peace Prize up for grabs. What did that wise man say? Gelato makes the world go round?


Go on, lick your screen. You know you want to. Or even better, go and try it for yourself.

Cannot remember if they even had 16 different flavours...Must have tried all but vanilla (boring!),and others must have been doubled up...
