Oh bring us some Figgy Pudding!ice cream – Yummy Yorkshire launches special festive ices

An award-winning West Yorkshire artisan ice cream producer has rolled out a range of limited edition flavours for the festive season.

Huddersfield based Yummy Yorkshire has created five special ice creams laden with favourite festive ingredients such as zesty cranberry, caramelised fig and brandy.

The flavours include Figgy Pudding, Cranberry & Apple, Chocolate Orange, Biscotti Irish Cream and Christmas Cake.

The Christmas Cake flavour is loaded with fruit and is made using a special blend of spices while the Figgy Pudding ice cream has a hint of cinnamon and a healthy dose of brandy infused mixed fruit and a caramelised fig ripple.

The Cranberry & Apple is a smooth, light pink ice cream which balances the tartness of baked cranberries with the sweetness of apple; a true reminder of Christmas dinner.

The Chocolate Orange flavour is pure indulgence as is Biscotti Irish Cream, which is made with a generous helping of everyone’s favourite Irish whiskey and cream liqueur.

The flavours have gone on sale at Yummy Yorkshire’s Denby Dale ice cream parlour and are also available for restaurants, delis, farm shops and independent retailers to order.

Louise Holmes co-founded Yummy Yorkshire with her husband Jeremy five years ago and is responsible for the creation of new flavours. She says: “You wouldn’t expect ice cream to be popular at this time of year but our festive flavours are always a huge hit.

“Many of our customers say that they are not keen on the traditional Christmas pud so see our festive flavours as a delicious alternative to serve on Christmas Day. We always have a big queue of customers out of the ice cream parlour on Christmas Eve making some last minute purchases.”

Yummy Yorkshire Ice Cream is known for its innovative and diverse flavour list which runs with the seasons. Since the business was launched in 2007, over 60 different recipes of ice cream have been developed using the best, locally sourced ingredients and milk and cream from the farm’s own herd of Holstein cows.

Several of the flavours have scooped prestigious awards including six Great Taste Awards by the Guild of Fine Food.

The Yummy Yorkshire ice cream parlour is located on the A629 between High Flatts and Ingbirchworth. For further information and “directions visit the website”:www.yummyyorkshire.co.uk
