Daresbury Dairy’s Chocolate Ice Cream Scoops another award!

September 27, 2017

Daresbury Dairy’s Chocolate Ice Cream was awarded a 1-star Great Taste award 2017, which means judges dubbed it ‘simply delicious’ for its Chocolate Ice Cream. Made with real Belgium Chocolate, the judges felt it was a ‘Rich, dark and delicious Ice Cream’, which was ‘fresh & creamy’.

The success for this product continues to build, and in 2016 our Chocolate Ice Cream also picked up a Bronze Award at the Ice Cream Alliance’s National Ice Cream Competition.”

Chocolate Ice Cream Bronze Award Win!

May 3, 2016

We are delighted to announce that recently our Chocolate Ice Cream won a Bronze Medal in the Chocolate Class at The National Ice Cream Competition, organised by the Ice Cream Alliance. This builds on the success of 2015 where Daresbury Dairy Ice Cream was awarded the Best Newcomer.

This was judged on the basis of a blind tasting competition and we are very proud to have been awarded 3rd place. It benchmarks us alongside some of the finest Ice Cream producers in the Country. We have always focused on using the finest ingredients to produce a high quality Ice Cream and we are very pleased we have been recognised for this. Our Chocolate Ice Cream is one of the most popular flavours we sell in our shop.

In addition to the Chocolate Award, we also received a Special Diploma for our Chocomalt flavour Ice Cream, and Diplomas for our Peanut Butter Ice Cream and Orange Sorbet.
