Dirk: Chocolate & Sea Salt
Josh: Hazelnut & Tonka Bean
Ben: Chocolate & Sea Salt

FAVOURITE WAY OF EATING OR SERVING ICE CREAM?
James: with a double shot of Italian Coffee
Dirk: Straight up.
Josh: Just lots of it. 1 scoop is never enough.
Ben: With a Big Spoon on a sofa.
Liena: I’m with James… I love a good affogato.
ANY NOTEABLE ICE CREAM MEMORIES?
James: Walking around Thruscross Reservoir eating an ice cream sat on top of a rock when all of a sudden a Jack Russell snatched it from my 6 year old grasp. I still hold a grudge against Jack Russells.
Dirk: Too Rude to say… but great times were had
Josh: .. um i can’t even think. I’m too disturbed by Dirk’s answer.
Ben: Being small and eating Italian ice cream when I visited Italy to see extended family.
Liena: I mean ice cream is genuinely my all time favourite food. It’s basically been a family joke throughout my life! When I was 3, during tanabata, (a summer festival in Japan when kids write wishes and hang up) I meant to write “When I’m grown up i want to be an ice cream man” but instead I wrote “When I’m grown up I want to be an ice cream”. Either way I guess the wish kinda worked!
Manolo: Working summers as a very young boy in my grandfathers ice cream shop in Italy!
CURRENT ICE CREAM EATING SOUNDTRACK?
James: Grits – My Life Be Like
Dirk: Always Springsteen
Josh: Currently rediscovering old hits on Spotify!
Ben: Let me think about this one.
Liena: Chvrches – Bury It
Manolo: * Disclaimer Manolo was not around during this bit so we’ll answer for him. We catch him listening to all sorts whilst he’s making ice cream! Sometimes Pantera, Sometimes Pavarotti, Sometimes (quite often) even Bieber…!
