Everyone from Northern Ireland knows it’s summer when they’ve had their first Pooh Bear’s Delight, Maud’s Ice Cream ‘poke’ of the year. The famous vanilla and honeycomb chunk flavour ice cream is one of Carrickfergus-based Maud’s best sellers, and one of the flavours to receive a gold star at this year’s Great Taste Awards, along side their newer Sea-Salted Caramel offering which also received a gold star.
Another of their gourmet flavours placed at the highest level with the top accolade of three gold stars, the absolutely delicious Salted Almond ice cream. I can verify to the deliciousness as Maud’s kindly dropped by with the award winning flavours for us to try this afternoon.
I hadn’t tried the Salted Almond before, and all I can say is it’s very, very moreish! I tried it with a little toffee sauce and the sweetness really set off the salt flavour. The ice creams are made with fresh, whole milk and cream from the North Coast of Ireland, with ingredients sourced locally.
If you get a chance to try it at a Maud’s Cafe or stockist (you can check locations here) I would highly recommend it.
