This is me, Adam. I grew up in Sydney, I live in New York now, and I'm VERY ENTHUSIASTIC about dessert.
Back home in Australia, Streets Ice Cream (aka Good Humor, in the USA) has just unveiled a treat called the Gaynetto.
Australia is damn hot so we take ice cream VERY SERIOUSLY.
This is the kind of thing I LIVE FOR. So, naturally, I kind of lost it when I found out.
There was just one problem...
As a joke, I confided in Qantas my predicament.
A few hours later, Qantas ~slid into my DMs~ to make me an indecent proposal
I read this at 4am NY time and I FREAKED. OUT.
A few hours later, Qantas sent out a snap of a big box of Gaynettos waiting to board in First Class
And that was it - a box of Gaynettos was in the air, bound for NYC.
Now all I had to do was wait, and try not to be *too* excited.
My friends were pretty amused by the whole affair.
Meanwhile, back in Sydney, my mother was beside herself. She sent me this picture of her trolley in the supermarket.
Seriously, my mother was ALL OVER this thing on social.
Qantas kept track of the Gaynettos on their Snapchat...
... for which my mother joined Snapchat to see. And then she added me as a friend.
On Saturday morning, under the care of Qantas crew Mike and Sam, they arrived safely in Times Square.
In a beautiful moment, Mike presented the ice cream to me. I felt like a contestant on The Bachelor.
There was nothing left to do but give one a taste.
And it was really damn good.
A couple of fellow homesick/hungry aussie ex-pats joined in too.
My American husband got stuck into one as well - his first Australian treat.
Even Lady Liberty got a taste of Australia
And so it was Mission: Gaynetto accomplished.
Now I've got a bunch of Gaynettos in my freezer, and a pretty decent story to tell at parties.
