Here at Wicked we hand make all our ice cream including our amazing range of gelato and the ever popular sorbets. Every morning we arrive at the shop early and start making buckets and buckets of your favourite ice cream flavours (and a few of our favourites as well :).

Being hand made is all well and good but what does it mean for you? Well hang on to your hat because what this means is that every ice cream you buy from Wicked will be as fresh as ice cream can possibly be. You have to try it for yourself of course, so come on in!

Apart from being fresh the other thing that makes our ice cream so special is the wonderful fruit and natural ingredients we use. The freshest ice cream deserves the best ingredients and that’s exactly what we deliver.

So, back to the reason for this post – Take Home Ice Cream! It’s one thing to enjoy an ice cream as you wonder around the Port Douglas shops or meander down to the beach, but it’s a whole other experience when you have one of our tubs in your freezer back at home or at your holiday accommodation. Sitting down on the balcony after dinner (actually, mid-afternoon is meant to be a great time to indulge) with a lovely bowl of zingy gelato is hard to beat. No crowds to avoid, no dripping on your hands, just a relaxed way to enjoy one of life’s great pleasures.

You can order our Home Packs right Here or feel free to call in and browse the range.

See you soon.

Gelato is an Italian style of ice cream that was traditionally made in small lots by artisans across the country. While the style varied somewhat between different producers, they all used similar production methods with recipes that were handed down through the generations, and all gelato ice cream has a unique creamy, zingy, refreshing texture that is quite unique in the world of ice cream.

The features of genuine gelato ice cream that are common across all producers are:

  • Fresh ingredients are used for each new batch of ice cream, typically made on a daily basis
  • Lots of fruit is used in gelato (chunks and puree) such as lemon, orange, berries and mango, along with our favourite classic ice cream ingredients such as chocolate
  • Using traditional manufacturing techniques that make gelato uniquely different to normal ice cream

Properly made gelato ice cream is served at a higher temperature than normal ice cream (-12° to -14° for gelato and -18° to -25° for normal ice cream) and the resulting rich, creamy consistency is an important part of what makes gelato so appealing.

Another feature of gelato ice cream is its low fat content. Even the creamiest gelato typically contains around half the fat of normal ‘industrial’ ice cream and many gelato flavours contain no fat at all. Absolute gold.

So if you want the best hand made ice cream in Port Douglas, please drop by and try our gelato.
