The MTV Movie Awards are known for giving winners a golden popcorn trophy. Personally, I think they’re being short changed. I’d much rather hold a cup of this above my head in triumph, then greedily chow down on it while doing the post award interviews. It has all the intangible resonance of a successful Indiana Jones […]Read more "Giapo Caramel Popcorn Gelato – Blockbuster Flavour"
Mrs P and I have just got back from a night in the city. We got ourselves a hotel room, and ate ourselves silly. There have been fish sliders, pork cannelloni, and calamari with a passion fruit sauce. In other words, we’ve made a lot of memories over plates of delicious food, just begging to […]Read more "Moustache – Cookies and Dreams"
Winter is in full swing. We’ve suffered some terrible cold, and the country overall has endured weather that has challenged or bested the record books in ferocity. None of that has cooled my desire for frozen treats though. In trying to bring the blog back to regular transmission I have indulged in several kinds in the past week. Unfortunately, while the photos […]Read more "Joshua’s Lemon and Lime Sorbet"
Does this do what it says on the tin? Do you get more awesome? If you’ve never quite let go of your inner eight year old this has the essence of dense, chocolaty, childhood delight. When I was young, the best ice cream was all about the bits you got inside. Usually, it was just […]Read more "Much Moore Awesome Chocolate Cookies & Fudge"
There’s a part in the movie Little Nicky where Adam Sandler’s trying-to-be-a-good-little-evil-son-of-the-Prince-of-Darkness character tries to show his nefarious chops by changing the contents of a can of coke into Pepsi. Seems like a lame trick on the surface, unless you’re really serious about your cola. Perhaps someone at Joshua’s magic factory was watching this clip and decided that […]Read more "Joshua’s Lemon Curd 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, […]Read more "Joshua’s Butterscotch Fudge Ice Cream"
Blueberries just don’t get the same respect as other berries do around my way. When it comes to fresh, preserved, and jellied, the kudos falls to the likes of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and boysenberries. Given how good they are to you nutritionally, seems a little unfair that they’re the low men on the berry totem pole. So, when I saw […]Read more "Oob Organic Blueberry Ice Cream"
I’ve wanted to write about this chocolate for a long time. In fact, it’s a bit like the wait I had when Whittaker’s first announced this chocolate. I checked the supermarkets to no avail for several weeks while searching for the anticipated comeback chocolate flavour. Similarly, after I tried the chocolate and thought to write […]Read more "Whittaker’s Cornflake Chocolate – Cookie Recipe as Simile"
You’ve got to love the lack of hype in the Pure New Zealand Ice Cream packaging. There’s no marketing spiel on it, all they’re going to tell you is that it’s Maude Pinot Noir. Perhaps you were wondering about the deliciously rich, Big Bird strutting around in chains and rings like a platinum Mr T rich, yolky French vanilla style […]Read more "Pure New Zealand Ice Cream – Maude Pinot Noir"
I usually like to space out supplier reviews further than this. But Mrs P had an involuntary, sharp intake of breath when she exclaimed the existence of the Mango Sorbet at our local foodie ice cream outlet. I was eyeing either a berry fusion sorbet or a lemon curd ice cream, but Mrs P’s reaction […]Read more "Kohu Road Mango Sorbet"
