Let’s rip the band-aid off – we’re all absolutely gutted that the Ekka has been forced to cancel once again. However, that doesn’t mean getting your sweet kicks has to wait until next year too!

Across Brisbane, many eateries are plucking the juicy red goods to deliver their own strawberry sundae concoctions. From cronuts to cheesecake, and even the OG itself, here’s where you can get your strawberry sundae fix in 2021.

Jocelyn’s Provisions | Various Locations

Your fave bakery for a reason, take a big bite into a strawberries and cream cruffin available in store at all Jocelyn’s Provisions!
