Snapchat are inviting you to pour some sugar on your friendship this Mates Day (May 8) with a little help from dessert hall-of-famer — Gelato Messina!

From free scoops of limited-edition gelato (until stock lasts) — to a full-on Snapchat takeover at the Surry Hills, Sydney store, this event is all about bringing besties together for some delicious fun.

Whether it’s laughing at silly snaps, sharing inside jokes or simply enjoying each other’s company — there’s something that just ~hits different~ when you’re spending time with your best friend. And now, Snapchat is rewarding your platonic co-dependant relationship.

Of course, aside from Snapchat ensuring I never forget my best friend’s birthday every year (thank you, Highlights!), it’s also an incredible tool to use to stay in touch, send quick updates — and of course, take a stroll down memory lane. So it makes sense that they’re big on friendship! 

The limited-edition flavour they’ve created alongside Gelato Messina — free exclusively for best friends in honour of Mates Day on May 8 (get it?) — is aptly called “Oh Snap!”.

An Aussie after-school classic — the vanilla slice — inspired this flavour. It features creamy vanilla custard gelato, laced with a bright passionfruit puree and caramelised puff pastry pieces that’ll make each bite as important as keeping up your Snapchat Streak with your bestie.

How can you pick up your free Gelato Messina?

Snapchatters across Australia can swing by any Gelato Messina store with their bestie and show the app on their phones to snag a free scoop of ‘Oh Snap!’ gelato each.

Which means from 12pm til close — or when they run out — you’ll have a chance to toast to your unbreakable bond over a treat that’ll transport you to dessert euphoria. 

But the party doesn’t stop there, because Snapchat is also taking over the Surry Hills Messina location with an unmissable takeover on May 8 — Mates Day.

Your BFF and you can take pictures at the store, decorated in hues of yellow, from midday to 10:30pm. You’ll also have a chance to get your hands on some fun Snapchat merch — and don’t forget that scoop of free gelato!

Your delicious scoop is waiting, so grab your bestie and head to Messina on May 8 for Mates Day to celebrate.

Mark your calendars, ’cause you’re not going to want to miss this one!
