While I was on holiday in Scotland we visited an ice cream factory and I learnt a lot about the process of making ice cream. That is another story but when the chance came up to review Kelly’s of Cornwall Clotted Cream Ice Cream I had to try it. It was not an ice cream brand I have tried previously and I was very interested to find out more about it.
There is quite a selection of flavours available. I opted to try the Clotted Cream and Honeycomb as it sounded nice. You can also get Clotted Cream, Clotted Cream and Strawberry, Clotted Cream and Blackcurrant, Clotted Cream and Chocolate and Cornish Dairy Vanilla Ice Cream. They all come in 1 litre tubs but the Cornish Dairy Vanilla Ice Cream is also available in a 2 litre tub. The RRP is £3.99 for 1 litre.
Kelly’s of Cornwall Clotted Cream Ice Cream is made in Cornwall with Cornish Clotted Cream and Cornish whole milk. I only learnt recently that it is possibly to make ice cream without using milk at all. Dairy ice cream is definitely a much nicer flavour and I will make sure I buy this from now on. I like that fact that all the farms with the cows that make the milk for the ice cream are located in Cornwall. It also included clotted cream which is very much a Cornish ingredient. I never realised that only milk produced in Cornwall with at least a 55% fat content can be called Cornish Clotted Cream.
When I opened the tub and looked inside the ice cream looked lovely.
It was a lovely creamy colour with swirls of honeycomb going though. When I scooped it out into the bowls it was lovely and easy to get out of the tub. I often find that some ice cream becomes so hard in the freezer it is impossible to get out, but this was not the case.
Kelly’s of Cornwall Clotted Cream Ice Cream tasted divine. It is really creamy and has a lovely velvety smooth texture. The touches of honeycomb add a little touch of sweetness and it is a really luxurious ice cream. I really enjoyed it and I also gave some to my husband and son to try. Well to be fair I couldn’t have got away with eating it all myself, even if I wanted to! My husband also enjoyed the ice cream but found the honeycomb a little sweet. My son really loved the ice cream and demanded more! Kelly’s of Cornwall Clotted Cream Ice Cream is a definite hit with the family and we will be buying it again. I am looking forward to trying the other flavours.
Disclosure: I was sent some vouchers to buy the ice cream and try it. I was not told what to write and my opinions are my own
