New Forest Ice Cream are wrapping the ultimate gift for dessert fans this year with the launch of its Christmas Pudding ice cream. The new recipe combines whole milk and double cream which is blended with moist Christmas Pudding pieces, providing customers with delicate bites of rum and raisins, as well as warming notes of brandy and spiced fruit.
New Forest Ice Cream’s Director, Niki Jenman, says: “We are so excited to bring our own Christmas Pudding Ice Cream to the market. Following the popularity of our award-winning Spiced Fruit Shortcake flavour, we know that our latest offering will be a big hit throughout the festive season.
“More and more consumers are demanding higher quality and responsibly sourced products which we’re proud to supply. We know that the cost-of-living crisis is having a big impact on the hospitality sector, which is why it’s so important to offer customers something really special – especially at Christmas!
“We are really pleased with the final taste test – it’s a really fun and refreshing take on the classic Christmas Pudding. The ice cream is perfect as a single serving but can also be served up with a warm pudding to give an indulgent extra texture and flavour. We’re confident that if you’re not usually a fan of Christmas Pudding, you will be now!”
This latest recipe in the ice cream connoisseur’s dairy range brings the total unique flavour count to 32 – with other winter-inspired recipes including Rum & Raisin, Chocolate Orange, and Redcurrant sorbet.
