Joshua’s Butterscotch Fudge Ice Cream


Marlon Brando famously stuffed his cheeks with cotton balls to augment his voice and his look for his role as Vito Corleone in the Godfather. Here Joshua’s have stuffed a pelican bill’s worth of butterscotch fudge pieces and sauce into the ice cream, and the result is less Marlon Brando Italian than smooth Sean Connery Scottish. Think of that velvety accent, stuffed in the cheeks with sweet butterscotch, driving a platinum plated Aston Martin and you get an idea of the richness and sophistication of flavour. Each piece of fudge crumbles effortlessly in the mouth, like so many Bond girls before the patter of Connery in his prime. So when you’re in the mood for something sweet but still debonair with it, grab yourself a tub worthy of being called Her Majesty’s Finest.

      1. Actually prefer sorbet; last visit to Giappo was to pick up a takeaway for the boy-child who was poorly. I just ended up eating quite a lot of it 🙂

    1. Haha, Australia is a pretty amazing country, all rivalry aside, mostly what puts me off is the idea of all those poisonous spiders and snakes. I reckon there must be some pretty decent ice cream in Sydney if Messina Gelato is anything to go on, although I suppose that doesn’t help you much. Ice cream ought to be a lot bigger over there considering how hot it gets, although I suppose you guys don’t have quite the same relationship with dairy that we do.

      1. You are absolutely right Mr P. I do appreciate my country, other than the venomous creatures (but truthfully, I’ve hardly ever seen them in the city) and the lack of NZ ice cream. There are some delicious Aussie ones (Maggie Beer and Simmo’s being examples) but NZ dairy beats Aus hands down!!! Deep South ice cream tasted creamier and more delicious than any Australian brand I’ve tried. I think it’s something to do with the fact that your cows get better, greener grass and better living conditions. Australian dairy farmers have to battle with the parched ground and relentless heat all the time.

  1. A pelican can fly over with a beaksfull of that ice cream. Or even better, Sean Connery can bring it over so I can eat it while I watch the Godfather for the umpteenth time 🙂

      1. holy cow–you have a way with words! That is golden. Glad to have you meet, amb. She loves movies (James Bond especially), ice cream, and finely tuned phrases, so I knew she had to come over for a visit.

  2. Liz introduced me to your blog and I’m so glad she did! That ice cream sounds devine. Also, “Each piece of fudge crumbles effortlessly in the mouth, like so many Bond girls before the patter of Connery in his prime.” cracked me the heck up. Well done 🙂

  3. Love, love, love your writing! If I were in NZ, I am quite sure that I would run out to buy each delicious over cream you write about. Sadly, I will have to seek out probably lesser substitutions.
