Kelly's of Cornwall Ice Cream {Review}

The weather has been amazing here the past 4 days. We've spent two of those days down the beach and the boys have both been swimming in the sea, a plus side to living by the seaside.
We've had the perfect opportunity everyday to divulge in bowls of yummy ice cream. That ice cream comes in the form of Kelly's of Cornwall.
This does make me chuckle.....
When the opportunity came up to review this ice cream I was hardly going to turn it down. A week previously we had bought the Clotted Cream flavour and the Honeycomb and Clotted Cream and loved both. Infact both tubs were empty within 2 days.
Strawberry
Blackcurrant
Kelly's of Cornwall is the only genuine Cornish ice cream available to buy nationally. It's made using Cornish Clotted Cream and Cornish whole milk, it's these two ingredients that help to give it a beautiful creamy flavour.

We bought the two fruity flavours available for the purpose of the review.
Kelly's of Cornwall Clotted Cream and Strawberry
Kelly's of Cornwall Clotted Cream and Blackcurrant

Both flavours were beautiful, light and refreshing. What we liked most about this, compared to other ice creams with similar flavours, is that it didn't taste at all artificial or sugary (which in comparison others now will do I'm sure) As my husband described them they are "delicate and soft".
We did find that they melted quicker than other ice creams so probably not one thats best to eat whilst sitting in full sun.
I preferred eating mine when it was scooped into a cone but my husband thought it was best out of a bowl.
It would be beautiful if accompanied with a fruity cheesecake, Eton Mess or with pancakes (mmmmmm)

Kelly's also have ice cream parlours situated in popular Cornwall Seaside towns, selling a wide variety of flavours. Well worth a visit if you are lucky enough to holiday that way.
I am currently using Kelly's ice cream to pursuade my husband that a holiday to Cornwall is a must!!

Kelly's Ice Cream tubs have an RRP of £3.99 for 1 litre.

We were sent vouchers to purchase a tub of Kelly's ice cream. All words and opinions above are my own.
