Free Ice Cream in Plymouth Today Only 13th July 2018

Strongbow is giving away FREE Dark Fruit ice cream today

Strongbow is giving away free Dark Fruit ice cream on the Barbican today – a one time opportunity to taste it reports Devon Live.

The unique ice cream is only sold in Glasgow, but Strongbow fans have chosen Plymouth as one of three cities to taste the cider lovers dream dessert.

The purple treat will be available at The Three Crowns, today, between 12pm and 8pm from a specially kitted out truck, and is only available to people over 18.

Kyle Gentleman, an ice cream maker in Glasgow, is a super fan of the beverage and became a viral hit earlier this year, clocking up millions of views when he dreamt up the idea.

Dark Fruit fans were desperate to try the ice cream so Strongbow put out a nationwide poll to ask customers which three cities should be visited on the tour.

A spokesperson for Strongbow said: “Fans in Plymouth proved their love for the drink as it was voted one of the three cities the truck should visit.”


Square sausage ice-cream goes on Edinburgh hotel menu

A new dessert with a Scottish twist has gone on the menu of an Edinburgh hotel – square sausage ice cream reports BBC Scotland.

Dairy firm Glen Urr has joined forces with Apex Hotels to reinvent the breakfast dish.

It will go sale to celebrate national ice cream day on Sunday at the chain’s Grassmarket hotel.

The square sausage ice cream is served inside a brioche bun with toffee drizzle, to look like brown sauce.

Ice cream for Astronauts?!

“Astronaut ice cream” may be the most infamous of all space foods. The freeze-dried treat is sold in stores on Earth, but according to NASA astronauts and the National Air and Space Museum, likely never actually made it into space report CNN.

So what does ice cream really look like on the International Space Station? It looks like what you can buy at the grocery store.

Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev posted photos to Twitter on Thursday showing off a selection of frozen desserts delivered by the recent SpaceX Dragon resupply mission.

“#Dragon brought some ice cream and tangerines to the #ISS,” Artemyev wrote. He thanked NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor for the edible gifts.

The photos show the crew holding chocolate-covered Dove and Snickers ice cream bars still in their wrappers. They are exactly like you’ll find in boxes in the frozen aisle in US stores. There’s no silver packaging and no crunchy freeze-dried Neapolitan bars in sight.

While the myth of space ice cream has been busted for years, it’s still heartening to see the ISS astronauts get to enjoy frozen desserts just like those of us stuck down here on Earth.
