Double Success at Great Taste 2016!

We’re delighted to have notched up a double success at the 2016 Great Taste awards!

Our Summertime Creamy Coconut ice cream scooped a prestigious Gold Star for product taste and quality, and as this is the third year in a row that we’ve scooped an award, we’re now entitled to call ourselves a Great Taste Producer!

Judges described our Summertime Creamy Coconut as having a ‘great, clean coconut flavour’ while another said the sweetness of the coconut ‘brought a freshness to the ice cream’.

Combining a creamy texture with coconut pieces and offering great quality at an attractive price, the easy scoop Summertime Creamy Coconut ice cream is a perfect addition to traditional and ethnic dessert menus.

“Coconut is a really popular on-trend flavour at the moment – its tropical sweetness and instantly recognisable aroma make it a favourite indulgence any time of the year,” comments Rebecca Manfredi, managing director.

“The flavour, texture and creaminess of this ice cream is representative of the entire Summertime range,” adds Becky. “It may be an economy product but it’s still worthy of a Great Taste award!”

The annual Great Taste Awards see 10,000 food and drink products being judged by 500 of the most demanding food critics, top chefs, leading restaurateurs and food journalists. Blind taste tested, the prized ratings are awarded on flavour alone and therefore act as true recognition of excellence for the awarded products.

The Summertime Creamy Coconut ice cream, which is suitable for vegetarians and free of hydrogenated fats, is made in a nut-free factory and available in 4 litre tubs. Our previous Great Taste winners include the Gelato Gold Coconut Cream and Rum & Raisin ice creams, as well as our Premium Mango Sorbet.
