Qantas Flew A Box Of Ice Cream To NYC Just For Me, A Homesick Australian

Wait, you've never had an airline bring you ice cream from your home country?

Posted on

Back home in Australia, Streets Ice Cream (aka Good Humor, in the USA) has just unveiled a treat called the Gaynetto.

It's a mash-up of two beloved ice creams, the biscuit-covered Golden Gaytime & the cone-shaped Cornetto.

As a joke, I confided in Qantas my predicament.

.@qantas please take me home immediately

And that was the end of it. I resumed my life as an all-American boy with neither Gaytime nor Cornetto to enjoy. But then...

A few hours later, Qantas sent out a snap of a big box of Gaynettos waiting to board in First Class

That's when it dawned on me that I was going to eat something that had flown in a better class *than me*.

And that was it - a box of Gaynettos was in the air, bound for NYC.

My friends were pretty amused by the whole affair.

So @adamjmoussa can get an airline to deliver ice cream across the world but I can't even get a man.

Meanwhile, back in Sydney, my mother was beside herself. She sent me this picture of her trolley in the supermarket.

On Saturday morning, under the care of Qantas crew Mike and Sam, they arrived safely in Times Square.

In the box: 20 perfectly frozen Gaynettos, and a metric fuckton of dry ice keeping them cool.

Now I've got a bunch of Gaynettos in my freezer, and a pretty decent story to tell at parties.
