Ice ice baby
June 24, 2013
Cornwall is full of top quality, award-winning artisan ice cream makers. Whilst on holiday in Cornwall, why not make it your mission to try as many different flavours of ice cream as possible?
Starting at Mr B’s ice cream parlour in Hayle where the ice cream is made fresh each and every day, seven days a week, using both locally sourced products and fine Italian ingredients. Mr B’s make 100 flavours of ice cream in total from Strawberry Pavlova to Jaffa Cake, Rhubard and Ginger to good old fashioned Chocolate.
Opt for the large tub of five flavours if you can’t chose!
Moomaid of Zennor, Porthtowan, is next on our list. Moomaid’s parlour is just a few steps back from the popular surfing beach, so you can sit back on the terrace outside and watch the action as you indulge.
”Nobody can resist Moomaid” they claim – and it might just be true. Limoncello, Almond and Amarena Cherry, Pink Champagne Sorbet…their flavours are original and alluring; a small siren call from the freezer.
Over to Callestick Farm, near Truro, not far from Perranporth beach, down green lanes that wind past cider orchards and quintessential cottages you arrive at Callestick Farm. Using cream from it’s own dairy heard Callestick Farm’s ice cream is deliciously authentic. Here you’ll be confronted with yet another selection of mouthwatering flavours from Gin and Lemon Sorbet to Lemon Curd or Toasted Coconut.
There is also a viewing parlour where you can learn all about the ice cream making process.
Roskilly’s is a well known brand across Cornwall, which you are likely to find in a number of cafes and restaurants, we have sampled ours in Coast Cafe, Newquay. Roskilly’s Organic Ice Cream has won a haul of awards and have even teamed up with Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall to create the very first River Cottage Ice Cream.
They, like many others, offer a sumptuous range of flavours from Malty Mystery to Orange and Mascapone.
Finishing our list is Treleavans, another famous brand found across the county. With yet another strikingly imaginative selection Treleavans produce Vodka Pink Grapefruit, Mojito Sorbet, Millionaire’s Shortbread and even Cornish Blue Cheese and Pear! Fill up a tub and enjoy it sat on the beach watching the waves.
