You will go back every day you are staying in Wanaka for this incredible ice cream! Completely unique and containing fresh fruit and goodness, you will fall in love with every flavour. Tasted: ginger, chocolate, apple pie, cherry, apricot, strawberry and coffee!

Amazing homemade ice cream served by a very friendly & polite local who knows more than a thing or two about ice cream/sorbet & is only too happy to share his knowledge!!! If your brave the ginger & lemon combo is to die for then again so is mint chocolate, hooky pooky, coconut oh hell just give them all a go... Enjoy!!!

Not surprising at all that NZ has great ice cream - no lack of fresh ingredients be it fruits or milk. Loved the cherry flavoured one the best. Also check out the message on their van :)

One of Wanaka's blazing hot days, I'd been on the go all day. My tastebuds needed something. And it was the passionfruit gelato that did it. Generous serving at a great price. Licorice a close second. Take a look at their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/BlackPeakGelato

We both had a double waffle cone (2 flavours) but found the icecream was ok but not very tasty compared to those in the uk. Sorry. Great customer service though.
