we all scream for ice cream

Post by stolenwine » Mon Jul 06, 2009 00:25

no ice cream thread? that is complete madness! ice cream is probably one of the best things about being alive and like, having tastebuds.

today i took some green and black's chocolate ice cream and smooshed up a reese's peanut butter cup into it and it was totally the best thing ever.

Green & Blacks are making ice cream now? I shall have to look out for that :)

Of course, coming from Swansea, I simply have to mention Joe's Ice Cream Parlour :) It's ice cream to die for!!!

You can get the Joe's brand in supermarkets these days, but, it's simply not the same stuff as they serve in their parlour...living in Uplands, it's less than a 10 minute walk from my house....

I also love Thorntons run & raisin ice cream :) I would love to find blackberry flavour at some point, but, years of searching have proved to be in vain....

I thought this was another Specific Heats thread for minute.

If you like homemade ice cream then the book called Lola's Ice Creams and Sundaes by Morfudd Richards looks really good. The recipes don't require an ice cream making machine as far as I can tell either. Some of them are quite unusual - I like the sound of Plum and Earl Grey or Chocolate, Cardamon and Chilli.

Yummy!

I went to this place when I was up in Glasgow at the weekend. It was so good that we went on Saturday and ended up going again on Sunday. They mix together two flavours of ice cream, two toppings and add your choice of sauce. On Saturday I had chocolate ice cream, coconut and chocolate chip ice cream, chopped up oreos, fudge and chocolate sauce. On Sunday I had caramel shortcake ice cream, chocolate ice cream, oreos, marshmallows and chocolate sauce. The one I had on Saturday was the best I think. It's really unhealthy but very tasty. I'm having cravings for one now, thankfully there isn't one down here or else I would go far too often.

Funnily enough, I was just looking on our local ice-cream makers website and spotted blackberry flavour! I absolutely love Marshfield Farm as they do such unusual flavours. I've tried rich clotted cream, carribean coconut and blackcurrant & clotted cream.

We're hiring an ice cream van for our wedding, to serve champagne sorbet after the ceremony instead of drinks. The ice-cream they use is from a place called Wallings Farm, which we visited earlier this year. I had bubblegum and turkish delight flavours, mmmm. They have the most amazing list of flavours!

I think the best ice-cream is abroad though. Dubrovnik had a wonderful selection of ice-cream and it was something ridiculous like 50p a scoop. Plus, they had Smurf flavour....
Just be nice to me.

ooh, i remember smurf-flavour ice cream from childhood holidays in italy. 'puffi' (smurf in italian) ice cream would leave your tongue a very disturbing colour. i think it tasted berry-ish.

this book is great for ice cream and sorbet recipes. i've tried about ten of them now and they've all been delicious. the gianduja and white chocolate ones were particularly amazing.

anyone visiting brussels should go to les délices de capoue. marzipan ice cream, blood orange sorbet... they have about 50 flavours at any time.

I like iron filings and shoe polish flavour ice cream the best, it's from the isle of lucy, you won't have had it

how come something as simple and pleasurable as a good lick of an ice cream has to veer off into the realms of the exclusive and the esoteric?

boo!

isn't it nice to have a choice? i don't see what's wrong with wanting to try different flavours. just vanilla or chocolate gets boring after a while. if that makes me an ice cream 'snob' so be it.

I'd never complain about plain old vanilla or chocolate but for me it has to be really good plain old vanilla or chocolate. Suppose I am an ice cream snob too then :)

I'm just being a curmudgeon, it's nice to know should I ever be in moldova that they do the best ever raspberry ripple whippy because I would seek it out- I don't want to just eat the first thing out the freezer cabinet but it would be nice to be recommended some ice cream that's well in my price range and accessible on the high street too- the best ice cream I ever ate was in porec in the former yugoslavia, it was 30 years ago and tito was still alive and in power- my enjoyment of the ice cream was probably down to it being hot, me being 10 years old and it being enormous, multi-flavoured, in constant supply and only cost the price of a packet of refreshers back home... nowadays I get my kicks eating cadbury's crunchie blast lollies that are half price in the co-op

they've got what I believe is referred to as 'popping candy' in the chocolate coating

it's very exciting

Popping candy? That's the same thing as Space Dust isn't it? A friend of mine told me that she once bought what she thought was a Mini Milk type lolly for her small son. While he was eating it he suddenly looked rather startled and confused and got upset. It was only when she looked closely at the wrapper she realised it had that stuff in it!

We've got Carte Dor caramel cinnamon waffle flavour is in our freezer at the moment and it tastes great! Their Lavazza latte mocchiato is good too, but I haven't seen it for ages. I love cookie dough ice cream, but that usually has to be Ben & Jerry's or Haagen Daz. I think I'm an ice cream snob too, but I'd be about 20 stone if I wasn't!

I saw those blocks of ice cream in Tesco recently (you know, the ones where you chop the end off and stick it in a square cone). I was tempted, just because it reminded me of being little. I see Artic Roll is having a revival at the moment too - I did a painting of a '60s recipe for peach meringues which uses Artic Roll, so I'll have to make them soon.
Just be nice to me.

The Crunchie Blast looks like one to try. The oddest looking (not tasting - it tasted lovely) was a thing I had in a German ice cream parlour in Heidelberg called a Spaghetti Eis. They have a machine which squirts soft ice cream though small holes and it comes out like spaghetti. They squirt it all over a blob of whipped cream on a plate, ladle strawberry or raspberry sauce over it and the cover it which chopped almonds (or in one place I tried it dessicated coconut). It looks remarkably like a plate of spaghetti bolognaise. I found a picture:

Hayley will be soooo jealous as she's been trying everywhere for that- I think she may kill for a tub so watch how you go

I must've been in a right foul mood yesterday because I've reread this thread and feel only joy and excitement at the world of possibilities that is ice cream

who likes it when you put cream on ice cream and it sort of hardens (the cream that is)?

Yay! A West Country special! I want to be on my favorite beach in Cornwall now.

I'm very confused looking at that spaghetti ice cream thing . . .

This is really new, I haven't seen one kind of ice cream like spaghetti sauce before! It seems interesting! But have you tried a tequila ice cream recipe, it's superb!
