Stickhouse @ Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre

Gelato with a twist, or a stick, in this case..........

I don't know about you, but I would usually expect gelato to be served on a cone, or in a cup... So, when I received an invitation to the grand opening of a gelato place called Stickhouse in Sunway Pyramid, I thought, "Eh?":
An interesting new gelato franchise from Italy....

What is their unique selling point (USP), other than the gelato being conveniently served on a stick?

100% natural ingredients, without added preservative, colouring or flavoring, some added goodness (like inulin for digestion) and all freshly made (hand crafted!) in house**:
(** As we were told by the very healthy looking marketing manager of Stickhouse who advocates a good balance of yummy food and exercise as part of his regime)
"Balance is an important part of healthy living"....

- Precision Gelato Stick Making In Process:
(The expert staff there carefully create the delicious sticks of gelato)
Carefully....

- Watch people skate around as you eat your gelato:
(There is a small seating area behind the main booth, if you want to sit down and eat)
Zoom zoom zooooom....

- A Variety of Interesting Fruit Flavored Sorbets:
(SO fresh that you can even taste yummy bits of fruit pulp inside the ice cream)
All the goodness of the fruit in a refreshing sorbet format....

- Chocolatey Gelato flavours too:
(This might be the slightly more sinful option... but of course I liked these much more *grin*)
Yummy....

My fave was the hazelnut gelato with (optional) chocolate and pistachio coating:
(The balance of creamy hazelnut flavour, with the slight sweetness of the chocolate coating and slight saltiness of pistachios was very nice)
My fave combination that day....
