I was lucky enough to score an invite to the launch of the new Mövenpick ice-cream kiosk at Westfield Doncaster last week. I brought along fellow blogger Cherrie, to help enjoy the VIP treatment of canapés, sparkling wine and free ice-cream…. how could she refuse?

The Mövenpick kiosk is in the middle of the sleekly renovated Westfield, and was exclusively roped off for the event. With live band, free flowing beverages and canapes, there were plenty of jealous shoppers wondering what was going on!

I didn’t managed to snap all the food, but everything I ate was utterly amazing… prawn and celery sandwiches, peking duck, arancini…. all … sooo… good!!

Made and imported from Switzerland, Mövenpick is one of the world’s favourite premium ice cream brands made from the finest ingredients in the world. Every Mövenpick variety contains no artificial flavourings or colours. It is apparently what you treat a girl on the first date to impress her back in Switzerland.

This new Mövenpick boutique is the first of it’s kind in Australia to be unveiled in a shopping centre complex. It makes the perfect pit stop whilst you are shopping up a storm. I know my girlfriend and I like to indulge in something after many laps of the shops, and many dollars spent.

This store is the first to have the pastry range. If it’s successful here, it will be rolled out to the other stores around Australia. I think it definietly will be successful…. I wanted to eat everything in there! It’s good when you go with a group of people, and not everyone feels like having ice-cream. But how could they resist Mövenpick ice-cream…. once you try it, you can’t go back to any old ice-cream. With it’s new café inspired lay-out, including state of the art facilites, plush lounges and modern dining areas; you can indulge in comfort.

We paused for some speeches. Peir owner of this store and one in Brisbane even treated us to his musical side and sang us a tune. The Swiss chef unfortunately didn’t treat us to a yodel :(

After speeches it was time for ice-cream!

    What a delicious event. Love the look of the savoury snacks and of course all that Movenpick ice cream!

      The savory stuff was just canapés for the launch. They have a delicious dessert menu though!!

    I will take Hamish on a date here and make him pay – HA!

    I tried some Movenpick not too long ago. The Coles in the CBD didn’t have many flavours – but if I ever get out to Doncaster I’m keen on trying the other more exotic temptations. Yum!

    I haven’t had movenpick before. :)

    Thanks for inviting me to the launch. I loved their ice cream and can’t wait to try their dessert range. My post will be up soon.

    Oooh, there are so many more flavours here than are available in supermarkets in Canberra! I’ve only had the tiramisu flavour before… off to salivate over the website 😀

    I will have to find this ice cream now! The creme brulee sounds amazing.

  9. Ashley - May 31, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Eeee! How exciting! :) After being in Switzerland I am smitten with Movenpick once again! The desserts look delectable!

    Movenpick is amazing, so delicious.

    But does anyone remember a short lived icecream experiment – Drippin Dots? They were ball baring sized drops of icecream made by dripping the mixture through super frozen air. You got a cup filled with little balls of intense icecream.

    I only had it once, at the Warringah Mall, before it disappeared, but for me that is the best ice-cream I’ve ever had.
