As a legal requirement allergen information must be available at point of sale. I will check individual
flavours on request but be aware that due to manufacturing constraints, all flavours may contain nut traces. All flavours certainly contain dairy products and most are gluten free. Cones are not gluten free and I am now using re cyclable paper tubs with wooden spoons. Ingedients for specials, or non- regular
lines will usuall be displayed on specials board along with any Lollys on sale on the day.
All scoop Ice Cream is made in an environment where nut based ingredients are used. A full breakdown of Allergens is available on request for regularly stocked flavours.
the great british lolly
The Classic Rocket
To lick an ice lolly is to thaw old memories of childhood summers – the bright heat, lapping waves, wriggling rockpools, sandy sandwiches and bobbing sewage of youth. The cool mist that eminates from a Fab can see you transported in an instant to bladderwracky family holidays on windswept British beaches. Twister is a weird, ribbed contortion of lolly and ice cream, a kind of arctic dildo. When you lick it, the milkfat smothers the taste of the lolly, leaving you with a mouth full of glaciated liposuction.
For all its ubiquity and apparent simplicity, it took a surprisingly long time for someone to invent the lolly. Legend is that an 11-year-old San Franciscan, Frank Epperson, left a fruity drink with a stick poking out of it outside on a cold night in 1905. He tasted it the next day, and saw that it was good. In 1924, Epperson patented his creation, calling it an Epsicle – his children preferred popsicle, and a fresh proprietary eponym entered the American dialect. During the Great Depression, double-sticked popsicles sold for a nickel, allowing two children to share a lolly. I find that singularly sad.
