The flavours will be available to buy for one week only and include the more unusual ‘Bacon & Egg’ ice cream and ‘Pear & Stilton’ as well as more traditional flavours including ‘Peaches & Cream’ and ‘Afternoon tea’ made from scones, jam and cream.
The award-winning producer will launch its ‘Traditional British Week’ on Monday 4 June and will have a selection of the special Jubilee flavours on offer every day at its Denby Dale based ice cream parlour until 10 June.
The full portfolio of flavours for the week includes: Old Yorkshire Trifle, Eton Mess, Honey & Fig, Clotted Cream Fudge, After Eight, Peaches & Cream, Pear & Stilton, Afternoon Tea, Pontefract Cake, Bacon & Egg, Strawberries & Cream, Summer Fruit Panna cotta and Rhubarb & Custard.
Louise Holmes, co-founder of Yummy Yorkshire is responsible for the creation of new ice cream flavours. Speaking about Traditional British Week she said: “We wanted to do something special to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and thought that a whole week of celebrating truly British ice cream flavours would be ideal.
“Some of the flavours already exist in our portfolio but others such as Bacon & Egg and Pear & Stilton have been created especially for the week. The Bacon & Egg flavour is tastier than it sounds; it has crispy bacon pieces rippled throughout which contrast perfectly with the custardy creaminess of the ice cream. The Stilton & Pear meanwhile is a delicious combination of pear ice cream and chunks of creamy stilton cheese”
The flavours will be available to buy on the cone from the Yummy Yorkshire Ice Cream parlour priced at £1.70 per scoop. The parlour is located off the A629 between Huddersfield and Penistone.
