March: Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream Challenge

The enthusiasm for the first Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream challenge was great. We had twelve delicious custard-based ice creams entries; a fantastic start!

The theme for March is to recreate a favourite childhood ice cream experience or flavour.

Write a post sharing your memories and your chosen ice cream.

It could be anything from Tutti Frutti, Neapolitan block or Viennetta to a 99 Flake or that one with the bubble gum at the bottom of the upside down dalek cup…

I’m probably showing my age here – born in the early ’70s, my childhood memories focus on that decade and the one that followed. Maybe your childhood memories are of a particular flavour from Lyons Maid, Wall’s, Baskin-Robbins, Haagen-Dazs or Ben & Jerry’s?

Or perhaps your thoughts turn to a glorious Knickerbocker Glory or Banana Split?

And I don’t even know where to start when it comes to the childhood ice cream memories of those who grew up elsewhere…

    so you used to be able to buy a block ice cream that came in the same type of cardboard wrap as a neapolitan but it was a chocolate orange flavour… remember that?…. well that’s what i’m going to make… but how I achieve that fake ice-cream taste I have no idea!!
