On Wednesday, we were freaking out over the announcement of Maxibon rival the Golden Gaytime Sanga. A mere two days later, Streets has us all in a frenzy again with the announcement of three new Golden Gaytime flavours released just in time for summer.
“It’s no secret that Aussies love Gaytime surprises," says Streets Ice Cream Marketing Manager Scott Mingl. "So why not give them a threesome they’d never expect!”
With unicorn cakes, meringues and desserts flooding Instagram feeds in 2017, it's little wonder that Gaytimes have jumped on board. Their take offers vibrant pink and blue ice-cream with a pink crumb. No word yet on exactly what unicorn flavour actually tastes like, but it's been described as "magical".
Also available are Pina Colada with a vanilla coconut crumb (hello cocktails by the pool) and a traditional choc-mint flavour with a not-so-traditional name: Choc Mint McMint Face. We can only guess that this unusual moniker was picked by the same people who voted for polar research vessel Boaty McBoatface.
But the real question is: how do these new flavours compare to the original? Since 1959, the perfect combination of toffee and vanilla ice-cream coated in a biscuit crumb has made the OG Golden Gaytime a perennial favourite with Australians – it will be hard to beat. However, we're fully prepared to do extensive research to find out which flavour comes out on top… it's the least we can do.
All three flavours are now available in multipacks. The Unicorn flavour will also be available in singles, so expect a lot of blue and pink grins on the beach over Christmas.
