Yummy Yorkshire ice cream company shortlisted for two regional food awards

Artisan dairy ice cream producer Yummy Yorkshire has been shortlisted for two prestigious regional food awards; the eighth annual deliciouslyorkshire Awards and the 2012 Yorkshire Post Taste Awards.

deliciouslyorkshire is the campaigning brand for the Regional Food Group for Yorkshire and Humber (RFG). The hotly contested annual food and drink awards are designed to showcase the best food and drink in the region and attracted over 290 entries this year.

Huddersfield-based Yummy Yorkshire has been nominated in the dairy category for its new spicy chai tea flavoured ice cream flavour. The ice cream is made with a black spicy chai loose tea blend from Doncaster based speciality tea company, The Tea Experience and is fragrantly spiced with notes of aniseed, ginger, black pepper, cloves and chicory.

The artisan ice cream producer is also a finalist for the second consecutive year in the Yorkshire Post Taste Awards. Yummy Yorkshire’s recently launched Lottie Shaw’s ‘Seriously Good Yorkshire Parkin’ ice cream has reached the final three in the Best Dairy category of the awards.

The ice cream is rich and oaty taste in taste and features pieces of Lottie Shaw’s Yorkshire Parkin, which is made to a 100 year old traditional family recipe like Grandma used to make.

Jeremy Holmes of Yummy Yorkshire says; “It’s a real honour to be nominated for two such prestigious regional awards and recognised for the hard work and dedication we put into producing the best quality ice cream possible.

“Both of these flavours epitomise what Yummy Yorkshire is all about; creating unique and interesting flavours that showcase the best of Yorkshire and its producers”.

Yummy Yorkshire will find out whether it has won a deliciouslyorkshire award at a star-studded ceremony to be held at The National Railway Museum, York on Thursday 25 October, when the deliciouslyorkshire Supreme Product and Brand Champion will also be revealed.

The Yorkshire Post Taste Awards winner will be announced on 29th September at a glittering awards dinner at The Guildhall that is a collaboration between York Food Festival and the Yorkshire Post.
