How to make Icecream

Updated on August 25, 2017

Where Icecream came from!

What is your favourite type and flavour of icecream ? Do you love New Zealand's Hokey Pokey consisting of plain vanilla ice cream with small, solid lumps of sponge toffee or are you a plain Vanilla type ?

How about the Magnum Icecream that is suposed to be like sliding between silk sheets ?!

Icecream has been around since the 1700's where it used to be served in glass dishes so the invention of the icecream cone was certainly a great idea for sanitation & ease of eating icecream

.Ice cream was introduced to the United States by Quaker colonists who brought their ice cream recipes with them

New Zealand where we used to have more icecream is world-famous for the quality of its dairy products, which are in turn the result of a clean environment, year-round grazing on outdoor pasture, a technologically advanced dairy industry, and strict quality and hygiene standards. New Zealand ice cream is made from the best and freshest dairy ingredients available anywhere.

Caramel & hokey pokey icecream !

Mr Whippy Icecream!

As children we used to love hearing the sound of Mr Whippy coming around the streets with the Soft serve Icecreams .

I know some parents told their children that the noise the van made he meant that he was sold out of icecream !

When we heard the Mr Whippy Icecream Tune coming closer as children we would grab our money & wait for him to arrive in our street so we could buy a choc covered creamy icecream.

Ok even as we got older we still enoyed the creamy Mr Whippy icecreams !

Interesting hub. They say music is the "universal language" but sometimes I think ice cream is too :).

It didn't occur to me that New Zealand might have fine ice cream despite knowing that NZ is known for its dairy and meat industries. Now I know which brands to look out for and try when I one day travel over.

I agree with everything that sharing the sky said. You should have had more questions in your ice cream survey, though. My favorite flavor is "chocolate chip". Stay cool, ECAL

      I have come to the belief, late in life, that there is no greater flavor than pistachio almond. Oh my goodness... it's to die for. :)
